Did you know that San Diego’s average wintertime high temperature is 65 to 69 degrees and the average low doesn’t typically drop below 48 degrees? This is why a San Diego vacation in the winter is perfect for those that want to escape the cold and avoid the San Diego summertime tourists while still enjoying the same perks.
Here’s how to enjoy a winter vacation in America’s Finest City:
Don’t skip all the beautiful beaches just because the water might be a bit frigid. You can buy or rent an affordable wetsuit to enjoy some surfing, swimming and snorkeling along San Diego’s 70 miles of coastline. Pack up a picnic and enjoy the sunset at La Jolla Shores, Sunset Cliffs, or Del Mar’s Seagrove Park. You can also round up some family and friends for a bonfire at Mission Bay or Coronado.
Theme Parks are usually less crowded during winter months but still offer the same amount of fun. In fact, many local attractions turn into Winter Wonderlands, bringing in real snow and special shows to celebrate the holidays. Pick a weekday to ensure the lowest lines possible and enjoy the rides and games at SeaWorld, Legoland, Belmont Park or the San Diego Zoo.
Catch the myriad of holiday events happening around the county! You can go ice skating on Coronado Island, watch America’s largest balloon parade at the San Diego Bay, participate in Balboa Nights at Balboa Park and experience drive-through Christmas Lights at the San Diego Fair Grounds. The options are seemingly endless.
