Why fly to San Diego?

It's the city of stunning beaches that stretch for miles and some of the coolest restaurants, bars and locals in the country. The San Diego boardwalk is the place to be once you land in the city and get settled in. The boardwalk is full of beautiful people roller-blading, biking chatting, or just taking in the sun and is lined by restaurants and shops that carry everything you could need for your sun-worship.

San Diego residents are very active as they should be to keep those buff bodies in shape for the boardwalk. There are numerous activities to take part in from a game of volleyball in the sand to water-skiing, surfing, snorkeling and for the adventurous a little cliff-diving right into the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There are also many classes available for visitors that haven't done of these things before.

The city also has many things to do inland including dining at fabulous restaurants that bring the flavor of the world to this oceanside city. You can find great Latin food in the city in addition to Italian and Indian. The Gaslamp Quarter is the place to be if you are looking for chic galleries, great shopping and dining. In addition, the area is also known for its intimate live music clubs.

The city has some of the most beautifully designed homes in the country, of course that being necessary to fit into such a gorgeous landscape. Head to the La Jolla area for house-spotting followed a lovely meal by the water.

San Diego Weather

San Diego is home to beautiful weather all year. The summer months are hot but not stifling and hit the low 30s. The winter months beginning in December see cooler temperatures with numbers dropping to the high teens.

When to fly to San Diego

Peak season

It is always peak season in San Diego since the weather is always welcoming. Of course the summer months and December are the most popular for Western tourists since that is when many people are able to take time away from work and also when schools are on break.

Off season

Although temperatures are still very warm in February and March, this isn't a very busy time for tourism in the city which means you will find the best prices on flight tickets during this period.

Getting into San Diego

If you fly direct into San Diego you will land at the San Diego Airport. From the airport you can grab the Amtrak Intercity train and Coaster commuter train as a quick option to get into the city. In addition, you can also take the metro bus which stops just outside the Commuter terminal and terminals 1 and 2.

The San Diego trolley doesn't make it all the way to the airport, however you can take the metro bus and connect with the trolley at America Plaza Station. Metered taxi's are available outside of the terminal as well.

Getting around San Diego

If you are staying in the city center the trolley is a great option for getting around as is the public bus service. However if you are planning on travelling further distances perhaps to the outskirts of the city, a rental car is the best way to go. You can take a taxi but it will be quite pricey.

Insider Guide

  • Plan for a full day at Balboa Park because you will need it with all there is to do. Experience the great outdoors with the hiking and biking trails. Next take a tour of the beautiful Japanese gardens and fountain where you can also find a place for lunch. Follow that up by a tour of the galleries.
  • Balboa Park is also where the San Diego Zoo is located. The planning of this zoo is really incredible and walking into the sight is like walking into a representation of all the land and water habitats in the world. The animals can be found roaming through the rainforest, hanging out in the jungle or resting on rocks outside of man-made pond. This is definitely one to place at the top of your itinerary. A visit to the zoo also provides a great learning opportunity for children during their holidays - and they won't even realize they just had a full day of classes.
  • If you want to continue with that theme of learning and animal habitats, head to famous Sea World. The penguins will delight you and the sharks just might scare you but you will definitely learn a lot from the venues well-trained staff. New adventure rides have also been added to the venue.
  • Take a trip to Tijuana, to get a slightly different flavor on your trip. The city is colorful and bustling with great Mexican restaurants and a bubbling nightlife.
