Local Seasons:

While summer may be slightly busier than the other seasons in this most-desired California city, there are not any real “slow seasons”. With perfect weather year round and a host of attractions, adventures to be explored, as well as fine dining; any time of year is perfect for a visit. The afternoon humidity virtually never gets over 67%, making the climate ideal for any type of activity. Summer is the warmest time of the year yet the temperature rarely goes above 80 F in the day and stays comfortably near 60 F at night. And there really isn’t much of difference during the other three seasons. Winters are mild with an average daily temperature near 60 F. Spring and fall bring the averages into the 60’s F, making both day and night good times to see the sites and enjoy the variety of entertainment available. Whether for business or leisure, San Diego is waiting with warm sun and festive nights.
