Get Moving as we Discover Destinations that transform Scenic San Diego into an Eco-Tourist attraction for "Explore SD"
First stop, hop on over to Seaport Village for San Diego Seal Tours as we explore so much more than just the city and the bay as we travel for a day with Terri Zorn Co-Owner of San Diego Seal Tours and Historical Trolley Tours.
Then its off to adventure with Hike, Bike, Kayak as we take a cool look at La Jolla Cove on a kayak to see how educating on the environment can be a fun time for tourists of all kind.
Take a break and have a nice relaxing sustainable stroll with Jim Stone of WalkSD which works on ways to make walking a lot as well as public transportation easy and convenient for everyone.
We're not sure how we will end the episode, so I guess you'll just have to stay tuned to find out.
Take a staycation and get some education on Eco-tourism with the How Can I Help? Season Finale "Explore SD".
