“It is better to be a young June bug than an old bird of paradise.”
San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do!
If you’re going to San Diego in June, you’ll have lots of daylight hours to explore the city’s attractions. It’s not likely to rain on your vacation and temperatures on the average are just right.
June can be a good time to visit San Diego as long as you understand that it’s just as likely to be overcast as it is to be sunny. And if you don’t mind being in crowds at some of the most popular spots.
Each month I have special fun events I want to show you so that you get the most out of this beautiful city!
Let’s start with our usual daily Farmer’s Markets. Check out times above ^
