Our San Diego Travel Blog article, ‘San Diego Things to Do: April Events in San Diego’ – presents you with some great ideas for all there is to do, see and experience in our beautiful coastal community. 

April is an ideal month to visit our lovely city…just as Spring begins and before the rush of summer visitors, April is a great month to get your 'San Diego Fix.'

Cloudless skies, tourist attractions that are ‘not full,’ near perfect temperatures, and of course the welcoming breeze that fills the air with the fresh scent of the ocean.

The beach water is still a bit cool, but most visitors brave the cooler temperatures to enjoy the crystal-clear blue surf.
