Enjoy the Weather During New Years in San Diego
As mentioned, San Diego sees a very temperate winter season each year. While it may be snowing back home, you will find San Diego to be in the mid-50s and 60s for an average high temperature each day. This temperature makes it perfect to get outside and explore until your heart is content. San Diego features some truly magnificent sights that need to be seen up close and in person. Popular outdoor locations to explore include Sunset Cliffs. This natural park is located near the Point Loma community in San Diego and is known for its sheer cliffs. Locals report that Sunset Cliffs really is the best location in the city to experience a romantic sunset. Other popular outdoor attractions you can enjoy also include Luscomb’s Point and Mission Beach.
Explore Balboa Park
One does not come to San Diego and skip out on an adventurous day exploring Balboa Park. This local attraction is always a favorite and features a variety of museums and other fun activities all in one giant location. Walk around the gardens and see beautiful flora on display. Most families know that Balboa Park is home to the San Diego Zoo, one of the highest rated zoos in the entire world. This extensive zoo remains open during the winter season where you can see some majestic creatures in person. Take a look at different exhibits that house over 3,500 animals including lions, giraffes, elephants, and much more. All attractions inside Balboa Park including the San Diego Zoo continue to follow state mandates on mask wearing and social distancing so please follow all advised recommendations during your visit.
Go Whale Watching
One great activity that makes it easy to implement social distancing is whale watching. The winter season around New Year’s Eve is the best time of year to go whale watching in San Diego. These beautiful animals migrate to warmer waters around San Diego during the winter. San Diego features plenty of charters you can book to go out onto the water and see these whales in person. Popular charters include San Diego Whale Watch and Hornblower Cruises & Events. Book a public cruise where others join you on the boat or reserve a private cruise where you and your family are taken out on your own. Choose whichever option best suites your comfort level this winter.
Grab a Mai Tai from Bali Hai Restaurant
When you are visiting a coastal destination such as San Diego, you need to have a tropical drink in hand. Visit Shelter Island where you can find the ever-popular Bali Hai Restaurant. This local restaurant features an Asian fusion cuisine along with delightful tiki adult beverages. Their Mai Tai cocktails are a legend around San Diego and are easy to drink. Bali Hai Restaurant continues to remain open for dine-in service during the winter season and COVID-19.
