San Diego is Still The Perfect Vacation Destination This Fall

San Diego is Still The Perfect Vacation Destination

Don't go into hibernation this fall! The arrival of fall in San Diego can tend to be quite subtle, we do see some changing of the leaves and the air becomes crisp; however, there are many days of sunshine and nice weather left to enjoy. I remember many sunny fall days running around outside in shorts and a t-shirt as a child. I never had to hear the, “put on a jacket, your going to catch a cold” from my parents. Growing up in San Diego, we are blessed to be able to enjoy the same fun things year round. That is also why it is the perfect place to vacation year round including fall.

There are still plenty of fun things to do in San Diego this fall. In fact this year Kids Free October returns to San Diego. Gotta love a good deal during the busy and often times expensive holiday season! During the entire month of October families with children can enjoy specials at many San Diego hotels, restaurants, museums, transportation companies, and attractions. All of the San Diego attractions are year round and plenty of fun in Fall. The outdoor parks are also cooler in temperature, and make for a more enjoyable visit.
