“Gestures, in love, are incomparably more attractive, effective and valuable than words .”
San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do! San Diego in February is a fun and gorgeous city of love. February is a good time to visit San Diego, as winter starts to wind down and it’s before the crowds arrive for spring break. February isn’t the time to go if you want to spend a lot of time at the beach. But if you’re thinking of a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway, San Diego is a good bet.
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 ^
