San Diego in April

 

 

“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”

Socrates

 

Whether you’re traveling for spring break or just a springtime getaway, San Diego is one of the best places you can visit in April. While much of the country is still straddling the fine line between winter and spring, San Diego in beautiful Southern California is fully basked in warm sunlight and cloudless skies. The ocean water still hasn’t warmed up to summer temperatures, but the beaches around San Diego are some of the best you can find in the U.S. at this time of year.

Each month I have special fun events I want to show you so that you get the most out of this beautiful city, but this month is a little different.

We can’t leave our homes and need to shelter in place to keep ourselves and those around us safe and healthy.

So I have come up with a list of ideas of things to do at home.
