San Diego is known for its Mediterranean climate that stays mild throughout the year. With such beautiful weather, the city gives residents every reason to get outside and enjoy its offerings. From spectacular San Diego concerts set in the outdoors to the many activities found along the shore, there is plenty to do without leaving the city limits.
The San Diego parks offer the best source of outdoor activity options. Mission Bay Park is the largest park along the city's coast. Spanning 4,235 acres, it is partially developed with playgrounds and trails for camping, swimming, walking or biking. There are also undeveloped areas where more adventurous camping takes place along with hiking, snorkeling and kayaking. The park is 46 percent water and 54 percent land, a combination that allows for many activities that will fill a free day or two.
Another popular San Diego park is Balboa Park, located close to the downtown. The park is large enough to encompass 15 museums, a theater and the San Diego Zoo. There are many tours through the 14 specialty gardens within the park, and it also offers playgrounds and trails. At night, there are festivals, outdoor concerts and performances. This park truly offers everything, from restaurants to dog parks and places for outdoor workouts.
San Diego concerts are always a popular option for those going through town searching for something to do. All of the San Diego parks offer outdoor concerts at some point in the year. They feature all types of music, from jazz to orchestral to pop music. Some of the musicians are world renowned celebrities, while others are local favorites.
There is no need to have an idle day when living in a coastal city full of things to do in the outdoors. Each day can be filled with activities on land or water, to be wrapped up with one of many San Diego concerts offered throughout the year.
