“Winter’s done, and April’s in the skies. Earth, look up with laughter in your eyes!”
―Charles G.D. Roberts
San Diego is such a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do!
One of the top destinations in April is San Diego, whether you’re going for spring break or simply a quick getaway. While much of the country is still teetering on the brink of spring, San Diego in lovely Southern California is bathed in warm sunlight throughout the day. The beaches around San Diego are among the nicest in the US at this time of year, even if the ocean hasn’t yet reached summertime temperatures.
San Diego is a well-liked destination right now, especially with spring breakers looking for sunshine and beaches. The weather will be warmer and the kids will have already left if you go later in the month.
Each month I have special fun events I want to show you so that you get the most out of this beautiful city!
