San Diego has five fun family friendly festival events this month… it doesn’t get much better than that. This month is one of the best times of the year to visit San Diego. The month of May promises beautiful weather and is still early enough in the year that visitors will avoid the high-traffic summer months between June and August. Book your cheap downtown San Diego hotel today and head to one of these fun spring time events:
