Overnight Adventures

Come explore the Living Coast Discovery Center after dark!

After a full evening of fun, hands-on activities and animal encounters, you will snuggle down in your sleeping bags for a movie and cozy indoor camping. The next morning, your group will enjoy a continental breakfast and more opportunities to meet local wildlife up-close. Call 619-409-5908 to reserve your spot today.
