Your Dreamy San Diego Getaway
In many parts of the country, folks are coming to the end of a long, cold winter. So nobody could possibly blame you for letting your thoughts drift to the prospect of enjoying warmer weather, some sunshine, and maybe even a little time digging your toes into some beach sand.
Good thing San Diego offers everything you’ve been dreaming of, and more. Your dreamy escape is waiting for you in “America’s Finest City.” Here’s just some of what you can look forward to when you drop in for a visit.
As San Diegans, it’s hard for us not to brag about our weather. It’s the textbook definition of “perfect,” no matter what the calendar says. With average yearly temperatures hovering somewhere between 70°-90°F, heading outside to enjoy some fresh air is always a great way to spend your time. And chances are you can leave your umbrella at home, as well. San Diego only sees an average of 38 days’ worth of precipitation in any given calendar year.
Sunshine for Days…
…Hundreds of them per year, as a matter of fact. San Diego’s mild, Mediterranean climate and close proximity to the Pacific all but guarantee us lots and lots of sun. And sure, maybe it’s a bit cliché to talk about sunshine when it comes to the Southern California coast, but there’s no escaping the truth. If your travel dreams call for buckets of brightness, then pack your shades and your suntan lotion and chart a course for “America’s Finest City.” You won’t be disappointed.
There’s a reason most SoCal vacation dreams include a lot of time spent at the beach — it’s because California’s shoreline stretches on for hundreds of miles. And with all that coast to explore, it’s easy to close your eyes and drift away to a warm stretch of sand, with warm Pacific waters lapping rhythmically at your feet. Even better, thanks to San Diego’s famous inland bays, we have even more beach than it might appear at first blush — so you’re never far from R&R.
