Kicks off the Holidays in San Diego
Thanksgiving is a beautiful time of year in San Diego, marking the official start of the holiday season. Typically boasting glorious weather, with a distinct touch of fall, from the coast to the inland valleys you're able to enjoy SoCal's outdoor lifestyle including days at the beach, shopping at outdoor malls, and nights out at rooftop bars. Enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving feast, burn some extra calories in a turkey trot, catch a pro football game, or volunteer your time for a worthwhile cause. However you choose to spend Thanksgiving, spend it giving thanks in San Diego!
