Are you finished with your Christmas shopping? Shopping and wrapping all those gifts can be really stressful, add in the rain we have had for the last several days and being held up in our houses and we are all likely looking for an escape! Why not take your family and loved ones down to the Hotel Del Coronado for some outdoor ice skating to unwind? What a great way to celebrate Christmas Eve overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
Spending the Christmas holiday season in San Diego has its benefits: the weather is usually mild - in fact December is one of the sunniest months of the year. Which means unlike other parts of the country, we miss out on rituals like shoveling snow - although the nights can get pretty darn chilly this time of year. But that doesn't mean San Diegans lose out on traditional holiday activities...San Diego has plenty of traditional things to do. Here are my top holiday season picks.
1. December Nights in Balboa Park
Traditionally, the holiday season kicks off with a grand celebration in Balboa Park. Balboa Park December Nights is a two-day gift to the community that brings out the holiday spirit in all, this year taking place December 3 and 4, 2010. The beloved San Diego event features sparkling lights, theatrical and musical entertainment, and exotic Food/Spirits throughout the Park.
