“The February sunshine steeps your boughs and tints the buds and swells the leaves within.”— William C. Bryant
San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do!
February is a good time to visit San Diego, as winter starts to wind down and before the crowds arrive for spring break. There is so much to do; go to a park, beach, amusement park, the options are endless. San Diego is gorgeous year round.
February can be one of the rainest months in San Diego so now isn’t the best time to visit the beach and go in the ocean. You can still go put your feet in the sand but maybe wear a sweatshirt.
Each month I have special fun events I want to show you so that you get the most out of this beautiful city!
