San Diego in Summer
By Viator, June 2013
Over 33 beaches line the San Diego coastline, and by order of the county, all of them are open to the public year-round. For the best of the beaches in San Diego, try Mission Beach, Coronado Beach, or La Jolla. Mission Beach has whale watching, jogging, and the famous Belmont Park with its amusement park rides, and Coronado Beach is both beautiful and famous for being the site of where Marilyn Monroe shot her Some Like It Hot. La Jolla is actually a great day trip because it’s a charming little suburb of San Diego with great restaurants and area shopping, keeping you entertained for hours or days – whichever best suits you.
Come summertime in San Diego, there’s the Coronado Summer Concert Series in Speckels Park which hosts free concerts every Sunday evening throughout the summer. The first and third Sundays also play host to local area artists who display and sell their work by the walkway.
Other great outdoor events in San Diego include the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in June, where thousands of runners unite in Balboa Park to run to various popular San Diego destinations and rock out while bands play at various points along the course. It’s some of the best fun under the southern Californian sun this side of the Mississippi, whether you’re into running or not.
