THE PERFECT SEASON TO VISIT SAN DIEGO

California was founded at San Diego, which is about 20 minutes from the Mexican border. Sunshine, 70 miles of coastline, and mild temperatures all contribute to the city’s reputation as “America’s Finest City.” There is more to San Diego than the Gaslamp Quarter and Pacific Beach, even though tourists flock here for its beaches and renowned tourist sites like the San Diego Zoo. You may discover distinctive eateries, breweries, art galleries, and locally owned stores in San Diego’s ethnically varied districts. San Diego is a city with open space scattered across it and different community borders due to its development atop undeveloped canyons. Additionally, because of the canyons, attractions are a little dispersed.

 

When’s the best time to go to San Diego?

During the months of May and June, known as “May Gray” and “June Gloom,” the sun remains hidden much of the day behind a thin veil of high fog. The hottest months, with temps in the eighties, are August, September, and October, when hillsides are golden-brown. A little rain falls during winter, which is the best time to view the natural landscape at its greenest. The combination of ocean, coastal canyons, and mountains to the east creates a variety of microclimates. A 10-degree temperature difference can occur within as little as 15 miles.

Can’t miss things to do in San Diego

Definitely check out Sunset Cliffs Natural Park in Point Loma. See the crystal waters from the sandstone bluffs. You might feel like you’re in some other country—a beautiful one, for sure.

Food and drink to try in San Diego

The border location plus the influx of Asian immigrants over the centuries means San Diego specializes in Mexican and Asian cuisines. The locavore movement is growing, and many restaurants have been developing relationships with farms just outside the city. You’ll find chef-owned fine-dining establishments, hole-in-the-wall destinations, and dozens of food trucks.

Culture in San Diego

San Diego’s climate and location on the West Coast draw people from all over the world. A variety of cultures are reflected in the shops and restaurants around the city. Each neighborhood has its own feel and style. If you love architecture and hidden treasures, plan to park your car, get out, and walk around!

FESTA!, in Little Italy, is the largest Italian festival on the West Coast. Balboa Park December Nights is a Christmas-themed festival that draws over 350,000 visitors. Restaurant Week happens twice a year—a time to eat gourmet at a great price from more than 170 participating restaurants. The San Diego LGBT Pride fest in Hillcrest draws over 200,000 participants. San Diegans love their festivals, and something is usually happening every month of the year. At these lively events, the trolley offers an easy transportation alternative to parking a car.

Local travel tips for San Diego

– The best time of year is September and October, when the ocean is warm enough for most swimmers to get in the water without a wetsuit, and the hordes of tourists have left.
– Winter is considered “off-season,” so you can get lower hotel rates and still enjoy great weather.
– No matter the time of year, dressing in layers is recommended, as the temperature can change in short distances due to microclimates.
– San Diego’s weather is dry, so carrying water with you is essential!
– The neighborhoods of La Jolla, Ocean Beach, and Pacific Beach have only one main road leading in and out. Avoid visiting around the morning and evening rush hours or you may get caught in a traffic bottleneck.

How to get around San Diego

The San Diego International Airport, formerly known as Lindbergh Field, sits right in the heart of San Diego. Flying in can be a real thrill as the plane passes low over Balboa Park and between buildings.

The San Diego freeway system is laid out in a grid, making it easy to get around by car anywhere in the 372 square miles of city. The trolley is a great choice if you are staying in downtown San Diego, as it stops at many destinations of interest. A machine at each trolley stop accepts cash or credit. Another option is to rent an electric smart car from Car2Go (register in advance, as it takes about five business days to get your membership card). Use the card to activate any Car2Go smart car, and when you’re done, just leave it parked in any legal parking space in the city. To get to the various towns along the coast in San Diego County, or farther north, hop aboard the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner.
