San Diego in April

“April is the kindest month. April gets you out of your head and out working in the garden.”

— Marty Rubin

San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do!

San Diego is one of the greatest destinations to visit in April, whether you’re going for spring break or just a springtime trip. While much of the country is still teetering between winter and spring, San Diego, in lovely Southern California, is bathed in warm sunshine and clear skies. Although the ocean hasn’t yet reached summer temperatures, the beaches in San Diego are among the greatest in the country at this time of year.

San Diego is a popular tourist destination at this time of year, especially among spring breakers looking for sun and sand. However, if you come later in the month, the students will have already left and the place will be less crowded.

Each month I have special fun events I want to show you so that you get the most out of this beautiful city!
