Best Time to Visit

Although the sun is known to always shine over the Golden State, the best times recommended to visit San Diego would be from March to May, and from September to October, when you can expect great weather and moderate rates. Watch out for the cloudy skies in May. Summertime is always recommended for hot temperatures and countless events taking place around the city. However, hotel fares are more expensive. Be aware of the gray skies in June. For best hotel rates, winter months are the best option. Even though the winter in San Diego is far from freezing, expect rain showers and water a tad too cold for swimming.
San Diego

Public transport

San Diego’s bright-orange trolleys are great for exploring the city and operate from about 5h - 24h, seven days a week. Fares are based on trip distance. San Diego Transit also provides local bus services throughout the county. Most buses have bike racks, making it easy to pedal around the city. For most visitors, driving in Southern California is an adventure, but it can also be stressful. Make things easy on yourself by avoiding the freeway during the morning and afternoon rush hours (6h - 8h30 and 15h30 - 18h) Downtown San Diego is pretty simple to navigate, and finding on-street parking can be easy. Just remember to feed your parking meters.
