It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to San Diego

Peak Season: May to September

San Diego’s proximity to the ocean makes vacation season last longer, especially when overheated Arizonans invade at the end of summer; expect high hotel prices.

Off Season: November to March

Between the holidays and school, San Diego feels like a small town. That means fewer crowds and better discounts at attractions that are hungering for business.

Sweet Spot: April; October

Warm spurts can make these months perfect for visiting – foggy mornings turn to sunny days, and without as many tourists – but there is a risk of rain.
