In most states around America, there isn’t much to do during the winter months. But, if you’re looking to do something different in winter this year, visiting San Diego should be your number one priority. San Diego is the state well-known for its variety of events on offer during the winter months, so it promises to be the place that keeps you busy for several months. Here are some of the top events in San Diego you must attend during the winter holidays.

Balboa Park December Nights

Balboa Park is one of the most popular attractions in the whole of San Diego – and it doesn’t change during the winter months. With many events throughout the chilly evenings, Balboa Park December Nights promises to be one of the most exciting. It’s the two-day holiday celebration that might lead to adding a few pounds because of the excellent food on offer, but it’s well worth the additional exercise you’ll need to do. Live music, theatres, excellent lighting to get you in the festive spirit, and of course the free entry are just some of the things on offer during Balboa Park December Nights.

North Park Toyland Parade

The North Park Toyland Parade is where winter gets interesting in the heart of San Diego. You’ll need to wrap up warm during the event, but with hundreds of floats and people from different communities filling up the streets, it’s one of the best but cold atmospheres you’re going to get. It’s also one of the few events in San Diego that brings communities together, and if you’re happy seeing everyone else happy during the chilly months, it’s something that must be at the top of your list of things to do.

Poway’s Christmas in the Park

Train rides, free food, visits from Santa and his beloved red nose reindeer, what’s there not to be interested in what Poway’s Christmas in the Park event offers? Thousands gather at this event to enjoy the Christmas lights and the live music in the background – it’s been bringing communities together for decades during the Christmas holidays. So, if you’re looking to get in the festive spirit, bring your family to Poway’s Christmas in the Park and enjoy the event with thousands of others.

Oceanside Harbor Parade of Lights

The Oceanside Harbor Parade of Lights might not offer the same sort of atmosphere as the other ones above, but it’s still the perfect setting if you want to see the remaining winter months sale by. The lights and views available are some you wish you could stay and view forever. All boats get in the spirit during the harbor festival and you and your family should take advantage of it like the thousands of others.

The chilly months of San Diego might not be any match for what the beaches and holiday resorts offer, but there’s plenty to do and see during the festivities. The above events, however, are just some of the hundreds of events that take place in San Diego, consider these other events if the ones above don’t tickle your fancy.
