  • I would recommend renting a car. They have rental services scattered across San Diego (including the airport) Having a rental is the move if you want to really explore the city.

  • San Diego also offers buses. There are a lot of routes, just be sure to have a plan in advance.

  • Pedicabs are a great way mode of transportation if you are looking to see the downtown communities in San Diego

  • Rent a bike! There's a lot of rental shops that are affordable and bikes are perfect to explore what's around you without going to far from where you're staying.


When to Visit:

San Diego has nice weather throughout the year. With an annual average temperature of 70 degrees, it's hard to go wrong. California gets a late summer so the warmest months are August-October. December-February are the coldest months but there's still plenty to do.
