Lagoon Pool at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel

July is the perfect time of year to save money (and personal vacation days). "How is that," you say? Consider doubling up your time at the Open Source Convention as a summer vacation. Bring your family and friends with you. There are countless activities available to keep your loved ones occupied and entertained while you're learning and networking with your peers. There is so much to see & do. Take advantage of this beautiful Pacific Ocean setting.

Free Shuttles to local attractions
Enjoy San Diego without the added costs of a rental car and parking fees. O'Reilly & Associates invites you and your family to take advantage of the complimentary shuttle bus transportation to exciting San Diego attractions and night life. During the day, the bus will travel to fun destinations such as the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park...just to name a few. In the evenings, take the shuttle bus to great dinner and nightlife hotspots such as the Gaslamp District, Old Town and the Fish Market. We have added more shuttle buses to our schedule, based on feedback from last year. View the Shuttle Schedule details.

Kid's World
Back by popular demand, Kid's World is available Monday - Thursday to care for and entertain your children while you attend OSCON.

Kids World , managed by KiddieCorp, is a safe and fun environment where your children can meet others their age, participate in arts and crafts activities, and group games. Kids World accommodates children between ages 1 - 12. Infants and toddlers are encouraged to participate in Kids World. They have their own quiet room away from the hustle and bustle where the bigger kids play.

Visit the Kid's World page for more details on these exciting children's programs and information on how to register your children online.
