Public Question Asked by gkim about San Diego
What are some fun things to do in December in San Diego (especially around Christmas time)? Can you recommend inexpensive places to stay?
We are beach and water loving people, but know that San Diego can get pretty cold during this time of year.
The Best Answer
Answered by Jenner Smith , San Diego, United States
There are lots of fun things to do in San Diego during our colder months (I'll say that rather than "Winter" as winter doesn't really come to San Diego but we like to pretend). There is an ice skating rink that is put up seasonally for the holidays downtown near Horton Plaza that is a lot of fun. Also December Nights is a great event held each year in Balboa Park that has a carnival like atmosphere. I would definitely take this time to check out some of the uptown neighborhoods including Hillcrest, South Park, North Park, University Heights and Normal Heights. These are great areas to walk around bundled up with a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate in your hands.
I would recommend staying at some of the downtown hotels on the waterfront as they have pretty good deals this time of year since they are big convention hotels and there are not a lot of conventions this time of year.
Hope this helps!
