Oh, the Places You’ll Go on a Dr. Seuss San Diego Tour

Dr. Seuss is famous all over the world–but did you know that he called San Diego home? Taking a Dr. Seuss San Diego tour will allow you to see more of San Diego and learn more about the life of Theodor Seuss Geisel: Dr. Seuss himself!

Geisel Library

What better place to start the Dr. Seuss San Diego tour than a library? The Geisel Library was named after Theodor in 1995 and it currently houses 7 million volumes of work. The library also has a Dr. Seuss Collection with more than 15,000 items from Geisel’s life and work.

The library also features the life-size statue of Theodor and The Cat in the Hat.

Visit: The University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Dr, La Jolla, CA 92093

Legends Gallery

This art gallery sells authorized Seuss artwork. Discover sculptures and sketches alongside replicas of Geisel’s Unorthodox Taxidermy series. The sculptures, sketches, and illustrations highlight Theodor’s less structured artwork, and you can even see the paintings he created as a way to relax.

The Unorthodox Taxidermy series features whimsical imaginary creatures inspired by real animals. Will you be able to figure out which animals are featured?

At this gallery, you can browse or buy, but either way you’ll gain a new appreciation of Geisel’s work outside Seuss.

Visit: 1205 Prospect St, La Jolla, CA 92037

The Lorax tree

No one knows if this tree actually inspired The Lorax, but it looks very similar. You can walk to this tree from the gallery, so we recommend making this stop on the Dr. Seuss San Diego tour either before or after the gallery.

The waterfront spot is gorgeous on its own, but it holds a sense of inspiration and wonder when you imagine Theodor looking out his studio window and creating Dr. Seuss’ next book.

Visit: 1100 Coast Blvd, La Jolla, CA 92037

All Things Seuss

This two-part exhibition takes the Dr. Seuss San Diego tour across the bridge to Coronado Island. Local collector Louise Gens Wicarius has generously loaned the City of Coronado 37 pieces of Geisel’s work for display.

You can see Exhibit 1 through May 20, 2019, and Exhibit 2 through August 15, 2019

Visit: Exhibit 1–Coronado Public Library, 640 Orange Ave, Coronado, CA 92118 / Exhibit 2–C3 Gallery, 1845 Strand Way, Coronado, CA 92118

Have you visited any of these places?

    of course like your website but you have to take a look at the spelling
    on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I will definitely
    come back again.

    I think the admin of this web page is actually working hard for his web
    site, since here every data is quality based data.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue

    the problem still exists.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
