San Diego is a city famed for its rich cultural past, and beaches that are popular even in the winter months. This is a small part of what makes it such a popular location with travelers, but the surrounding natural attractions are a huge reason why it attracts so many people. In winter, you can be assured that the weather is not too hot to hike through the wilderness, but that you can still see sunny skies between the tree tops. This is why it’s best to rent a winter vacation rental, so that you can make the most of what’s around you. Head to the iconic Balboa Park, which offers over a thousand acres of trails alongside other activities, or venture out to Anza Borrego Desert State Park for a unique encounter with nature.
