Experiencing corporate housing in San Diego over the holidays? Feeling like you’ve missed out on a “White Christmas”? Even the most majestic snowstorm outlives its welcome once you’ve spent months being cooped up indoors. Consider visiting some of San Diego’s highlights during the holidays. While most of the country is bundled up and scraping windshields, you can enjoy these activities while walking around in shorts and flip flops!
You can go hiking in San Diego at any time, even during the dead of winter. Cowles Mountain, the city’s highest point, is a favorite among locals, and there are countless trails in the surrounding Mission Trails Regional Park.
You can experience year-round waves from Oceanside to Imperial Beach. Read more about Oceanside Beach and the variety of activities available here: http://www.visitoceanside.org/info/oceanside-beach/
With a slew of world-class shopping centers located in Mission Valley and Fashion Valley, experiencing a shopping high can be one of the top things to do during the holidays. Located in the neighborhoods of North Park and South Park, you’ll discover many Mom & Pop shops selling locally-made products.

Check out some of the historical sights
San Diego is rich in history, which makes visiting historical sights a top activity. For example, “Old Town” is located just north of San Diego’s downtown area. Visitors can explore the original site where missionaries settled. Authentic Mexican restaurants and the “haunted” Whaley House are just two sights that attract both tourists and locals.
Drink some of the world’s best craft beers
San Diego is considered one of the craft beer capitals of the world. For those looking to get a little more jolly, Stone Brewing, Alpine, Green Flash, Mission, and Modern Times are just a few of the revered breweries located in the city.
