Lonely Planet review
This enchanting fantasy park of rides, shows and attractions is mostly suited to the elementary-school set. Tots can dig for dinosaur bones, pilot helicopters and earn their driver's license. Mom and dad will probably get a kick out of Miniland, recreating such American landmarks as the White House, the Golden Gate Bridge and Las Vegas entirely of Lego blocks. From Downtown San Diego (about 32 miles), take the I-5 Fwy north to the Cannon Rd E exit. Parking is $12.
