San Diego in March
“Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay”
-Simone de Beauvoir
San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do!San Diego is a fun place to visit in March, especially during the brief break between winter and spring break. Winter rains taper off or disappear altogether. For the first week of the month, all of the tourist spots are uncrowded before the break surge arrives. It will be too cold to swim in the ocean, but you can enjoy a seaside stroll during the day. And once spring break starts, all the family-focused attractions get super-busy.
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 ^
