San Diego in December


“Learn from yesterday, live for today, home for tomorrow.”

-Albert Einstein


San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do! San Diego in December is no different for any other month, other than it is a bit chillier. You won’t find snow unless someone made is making it. Santa Claus is more likely to be wearing a Hawaiian shirt than his classic red outfit. Also, the beach is still totally open and many still frequent it.


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