Have fun exploring
San Diego is home to some of the best entertainment attractions in the country. The weather in March in San Diego makes for the perfect climate to head out and have fun. Seaworld offers a marine waterpark and has been building more and more roller coasters to raise your adrenaline. The San Diego Zoo is our largest attraction and is an awesome way to spend a day and help support the animals. In Downtown, the USS Midway Museum is an awesome experience bringing you on an actual aircraft carrier with fighter jets.
The spring is a great time to take on some of the county’s numerous hiking trails. The cooler conditions and recent rainfall make it the perfect time of year to get outdoors and hike on the nature trails. Some of my favorite hikes in San Diego are Three Sisters Waterfall, Cedar Creek Waterfall, Iron Mountain, and Torrey Pines State Park.
The Torrey Pines Gliderport is the ultimate base camp on the coast if you are looking for an adrenaline-packed adventure. Choose between hang gliding or paragliding and let your feet dangle over the cliffs!
