I love winter in San Diego anyway, but we’ve never experienced winter weather like this one since we moved here in 1996. For the past 3 weeks we’ve had warm, balmy and just glorious weather like today; 72 degrees with 16% humidity, and it’s projected to continue for the next 10 days at least. Driving home yesterday I saw a guy walking along without his shirt on and several women running in tank tops, people out golfing and playing tennis, many people at the beach, out for a walk with their baby or like my elderly neighbor just sitting in the sun on their porch. So Mid-westerners and East Coasters, get out here and take a break from that extreme cold spell you’re going through- it sounds brutal!
San Diego is lovely in the Fall, Winter and Spring- much less crowded. You can get up close to all the animals at our World Famous San Diego Zoo enjoy having no lines at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad, or have a blast with your kids at the water park there. Or do all three parks and visit SeaWorld- walking under the shark exhibition is my favorite part.
You should be able to find a reasonably priced vacation rental at this time of year- we have a list of recommended property managers on our Partners page. Be sure to pack your shorts, sandals and swim suits- you can go back home and brag that you were swimming in the ocean in January, lounging by the pool getting a tan and building sandcastles with your toddler or baby.
I can’t imagine it will last forever- we’ll need some rain at some point. So hurry, hurry- be spontaneous! Book the flight, accommodation and car- we’ve got you covered for the beach and baby equipment rentals.
