Best time to take a vacation to San Diego County

Best Time to Go

Travelers planning San Diego vacations can book their trips without being concerned about the weather, since the area experiences mild temperatures throughout the year. However, visitors who want to enjoy a sunny vacation in the city should try to arrange their San Diego travel in July to avoid running into the fog that descends during late spring. Summer is also a great time to experience the many annual events hosted in the city, including the Shakespeare Festival, the Pride Parade, and the San Diego County Fair. Guests who visit in early fall may take advantage of cheap post-summer hotel rates.
