    Where the sunny dispositions match the weather

    Thanks to its prime spot on California's coast, San Diego has most certainly earned its self-appointed nickname as America's Finest City. Well known for its beautiful beaches, charming Old Town, and growing restaurant and nightlife scene, you'll have trouble deciding if you're more enamored with the excessively sunny weather or the consistently cheerful locals. Whether you're exploring the region's Spanish colonial history, riding the waves with the local surfers, or shopping your way through the city's sweet little streets, it's likely you'll never want to check out of your San Diego vacation rental.

    Experience the city while hanging ten or flying high

    There's nothing more Californian than a day at the beach, practicing your surf skills in Del Mar or hiking the trails in La Jolla. Spot the seals and sea lions that have taken over some of the beaches, or hop aboard a whale-watching tour. Take a sunset hot air balloon ride, or catch one of the many local festivals that fill the city's streets throughout the year. Whatever you do, be sure to book a San Diego vacation rental with outdoor space. You won't want to spend any time indoors with weather this fine.

    Take your wild side seamlessly from day to night

    You can't visit San Diego and skip Balboa Park, site of the famous San Diego Zoo. But if you're not enticed by the giraffes grazing in Safari Park, then be sure to visit this sprawling urban cultural park's numerous art galleries, museums, and theaters. After, be sure to visit the San Diego Harbor, where you can climb aboard the USS Midway, an aircraft-carrier-turned-museum. Other local highlights include Birch Aquarium, the San Diego Botanic Garden, and the Historic Gaslamp Quarter, which is a 16-block historic district known for its nightlife and restaurant scene.

    No, May Gray isn't a failed actress who moved south from L.A.

    The locals love bragging about the weather, with near-perfect temps lasting almost the entire year. Summers are hectic, busy, and more expensive, but the Pacific Ocean's rarely-warm temps might be enough to lure you into booking that San Diego vacation rental after all. If crowds really aren't your scene, then September and October are the ideal time to visit, when prices drop but temps barely see a dip. Winters are unsurprisingly quiet, but so are May and June, thanks to the region's bout of gray weather, known as May Gray and June Gloom.

    A city full of rolling waves and rolling hills

    Situated just 20 miles north of the Mexican border, San Diego's biggest natural attraction is, undoubtedly, its 70 miles of stunning, sandy beaches. The city is surrounded by rolling hills, and includes the San Diego Bay along its coast, a natural harbor and deepwater port. But the city doesn't just offer impeccable coastlines. San Diego also features acres of densely forested hills, perfect for hiking, fertile valleys that are ideal for a budding wine region of its own, and plenty of mountains, canyons, and desert in between.
