The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is a short drive from Poway, and October is a good time for families to make the trip, since kids age 3 to 11 can get in for free.
The park formerly known as the Wild Animal Park, along with the San Diego Zoo, has admitted children for free in October for more than 25 years. Now other attractions throughout the county have added to the fun by offering freebies to families, including 36 museums and dozens of other offers from hotels and restaurants.
In Poway, kids 15 and under can play for free at Maderas Golf Club all month, after 3 p.m. and with a paying adult. Click here for the online coupon.
