Hot San Diego Events for March 2013
Now that most of the major holidays are behind us, Spring is approaching and you’re wondering what events are the best way to spend some much-deserved leisure time out and about in San Diego County. Here are some suggestions on San Diego events to really take advantage of this March.
- St. Patrick’s Beer and Food Walking Tour: Nothing quite says “March has officially” arrived like sporting some green and getting in touch with your Irish side. The St. Patrick’s Beer and Food Walking Tour offers San Diegans the full St. Patrick’s Day experience - and runs every day in the month of March. Perfect for beer and food enthusiasts this is a great opportunity for visitors to get ready to chow down on burgers and pizza and imbibe in some of the best beers in San Diego County. This tour offers beer tastings as well as behind the scenes glimpses of the beer-making process. It stops at three local breweries and you’ll get to walk off all those carbs afterwards with a stroll through scenic La Jolla.
- The Carlsbad Flower Fields: “April showers bring May flowers...” So the saying goes, and while that may be true for the rest of the country, in San Diego spring strikes early, and once March rolls around many beautiful flowers are already in bloom in various parts of the county. The picturesque Flower Fields in Carlsbad will transport you with their extraordinary demonstration of natural beauty. Only in season for around 6 weeks each Spring, the Flower Fields are spread across more than 50 acres, so spend a tranquil afternoon on an antique tractor wagon ride, walking along a sweet pea maze, or admiring the special poinsettia display.
- Life-like Exhibit at Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego: Coming to the West Coast for the first time and opening on March 1st at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla, this exhibit is a playful examination of what qualifies something as art. It features objects that would normally be considered mundane and everyday, and is sure to leave viewers wondering “Is that real?” In the artists’ hands these ordinary objects become whimsical installations such as a giant eraser, a paper bag (or is it a marble sculpture?) and even an apple core. This exhibit is sure to be thought-provoking for the curious San Diegan, while still managing to be fun and lighthearted.
- Chocolate Sunday at the San Diego Natural History Museum: If your sweet tooth still hasn’t been satisfied after Valentine’s Day, be sure to get your sugar fix at the San Diego Natural History Museum’s Chocolate: The Exhibition. Not only will you learn about the backstory and science behind this delectable treat, but on Sunday March 10th between 12pm and 3pm, and for just $1, in addition to admissions fees, patrons can sample some scrumptious gourmet chocolates from three of San Diego’s finest sweet shops.
Now you have an idea of some events, exhibits, celebrations (and let’s not forget the food) you can use to rid you of any lingering winter blues and ring in Spring in style. Be sure to keep checking back for other suggestions on Sandiego.com!
