What To Do:
You will never be able to experience all San Diego has to offer in one stay. Review the beaches and decide on a few things you would like to do while visiting. You will be tempted to fill your days with activities in order to get it all in but do yourself a favor and leave some time for relaxation.
Where To Stay:
San Diego hotels range from exotic to ultimate luxury resorts as well as having a good selection of budget friendly options to choose from. It is probably wise to choose a hotel close to the attractions and activities that most appeal to you.
When To Visit:
Anytime! Seriously, San Diego is known for its mild Mediterranean climate. With daytime highs averaging 70°F and 10 inches of rainfall a year, there is no bad time to visit. However, if you want to avoid the crowds at the theme parks and save money on lower costs accommodations, plan your visit for the months of March through May or September through November when they’re aren’t as many school breaks during these months. If you don’t have an option and have to visit during the summer, plan your trip well in advance to secure the accommodations that best fit your needs.
During the month of May and June, San Diego experiences a unique phenomenon of coastal cloud cover known among the locals as "May Gray" and "June Gloom." This cloud cover or fog doesn't burn off until noon (if at all) and returns before sunset. Many hotels and restaurants offer significant discounts during these months. Use days like these to explore non-beach related activities such as the San Diego Zoo. and the Zoo Safari Park where you’ll probably find sunshine and warmth.
The overall best month to visit San Diego is October. You will still have warm days, the ocean temperatures have not fallen yet and the nights are cool. With school back in session, you won’t have the throngs of people in line for major attractions and the theme parks.
San Diego is host to many festivals during the year. Large crowds assemble at the Gaslamp Quarter in February for Mardi Gras. June brings several events such as The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and the LGBT Pride Parade. Fleet Week is always a busy time in August, September and October and November you’ll enjoy the Thanksgiving Dixieland Jazz Festival.
