Summer is one of the best times to visit San Diego. From fun attractions to exciting events, there is always something going on. Here are just some exciting events to enjoy during your Summer in San Diego.

During the summer months, it’s nice to get outside and enjoy the weather by going to the beach or spending the day exploring Balboa park. Once the sun goes down however, it doesn’t mean that the fun needs to stop! Instead, watch a movie outdoors and bring along food for dinner and a movie. There are a number of different options to watch outdoor movies during the summer in San Diego from free movies at the park to movies on the beach to movies at Little Italy. Just grab a blanket, a picnic dinner and enjoy a night watching a movie under the stars!

If you’re hoping to explore San Diego in a timely and unique way, the 59-mile Scenic Drive is just the thing for you. For just 50 cents you can purchase a map that outlines the drive and all the various stops along the way. The drive will take around 3 hours to complete and along the way you’ll pass along nearly 27 stops. Some of the stops you see along the way include Point Loma, Mission Bay Aquatic Park, the UCSD campus, Old Town State Historic Park and many more. Maps are available for purchase at the International Visitor Information Center.  

Another fun event to enjoy during your time in San Diego are the Twilight in the Park Summer Concerts. For 36 years, this musical celebration has brought together friends and family for a night of fun music, dancing and community.
