Planning Your Fall Visit to San Diego

San Diego is famous for its beautiful beaches and sunny SoCal weather. As a result, you might think that summer is the best time to visit. However, planning a fall visit to San Diego might just be the best move. Also known as our “endless summer,” there’s plenty to enjoy in San Diego during autumn, and we’ve got all the info you need to make the most of your trip. Read on to learn about all the events and attractions you should look out for!

Hit the Beach

While spending time at the beach might be an activity exclusive to summer in other parts of the world, we’re lucky here in San Diego. Our year-round warm weather means that other months — especially September, October, and even November — are still prime time for lounging on the sand, soaking up the sun, and splashing around in the Pacific. In fact, you’ll most likely avoid some of the summertime crowds, leading to a more pleasant beach experience.

Kids Free San Diego

If you’re planning to visit San Diego with kids, then there’s perhaps no better time to visit than October. All month long you’ll find incredible offers that kids can enjoy for free around the city. Free meals, free museum tickets, free boat rides, free tours, and more — there are more than 100 deals that you can score during October. Here at Humphreys, we’re offering free kids meals with the purchase of an adult meal, all month long.


If your visit happens to coincide with the end of October, then you have something else to look forward to: Halloween! San Diegans love their holidays, and there’s plenty of festive fun to be had. Of course, all of our world-famous theme parks put on special Halloween events, such as the SeaWorld Spooktacular and LEGOLAND’s Halloween in Miniland, which you won’t want to miss. There are also haunted houses, haunted ships, and haunted cemeteries to explore, plus pumpkin patches for picking out the perfect jack-o’-lantern.
