I will be traveling to San Diego on December 26th. Any advice on what kind of clothing to pack? What is the weather like during that time of year?

Since your profile is not complete we don't know what you might be used to in weather. SD in Dec can be quite pleasant but it could get "cold" by our standards. Figure on 40-70 for nights and peak days but if winds come up or it rains the chill factor might be more.

think layers.. warm in the sun, cool at night.. Pack a light jacket and a turtle neck and you should be ready for anything.

Thanks for the info. I am a New Yorker so right now it is about 30 degrees outside-that is cold!! Around here, as soon as it hits 50 degrees, everyone is is shorts

ROTFL...Ah...yes, I recall a Dec in NYC for International Film Festival. Freezing on day 1, shirt sleeves day 2... You'll do fine in SD with just a light jacket.

Mid to low 60s during the day. Check the Weather Channel just before you leave. Right now it's in the 70s but supposed to be dropping later in the week. We're in central California and it's lovely here today but was bitter (to us) last week.

Layers are a good idea no matter where you go . . . or when.

Enjoy San Diego. Hope you're planning to visit Balboa Park. 8^)

The way things have been going lately, there could even be rain for that date. Temps should be in the mid 60's during the day and lows in the lower 50's. It can be sunny one day and then cloudy and rain the next. Check out the 15 day forcast and the historic average for the rest of the month on

I would pretty much agree with everyone above. This has been a cool year weatherwise.

Typically at the end of December the days are sunny and cool (low 60's) nights tend to be cold (high 40's) and sometimes it will rain a bit. This year it's been cooler than normal, but yesterday it was sunny and 72 so it's hard to tell what the end of the month will be like.

I agree that "layering" is the best defense. It's usually cooler in the morning, but can heat up during the day. I suggest you pack at least one jacket or sweater that will keep you warm, especially for the evenings--as soon as the sun begins to set it cools off. Also if you plan to spend anytime in the beach areas, even during the day, a jacket might be needed.

Another thing, we tend not to use heaters as much as those living in colder climates so it might be necessary to wear your jacket inside also.

I am a New York Stater also.. Upstate where is has been snowing FEET!.

Returned from San Diego a couple of weeks ago.. Those of us from the Northeast were in shirt sleeve while the locals were in coats.. but cool at night.. layers always work. We travel in Asia for three months each winter that method keeps us warm and the packing light!

Looking at the weather that time it is better to pack jackets and rain coats as well......

Travel Tips for San Diego

Old Town Historic State Park

by csordila

The historic neighborhood of Old Town is a sight not to be missed! The first European settlement in what is now California, Old Town San Diego is filled to the brim with unique artisan shops, and art galleries. In the Mexican restaurants you should not be surprised, if your diner is escorted by a flamenco serenade played by a whole mariachi band. In the Old Town Historic State Park beside a lot of entertainments I have learned something about the history of California.
I am sorry for one thing only, I did not take part in the ghost tour, so I have to go back to get acquainted with the spookiest places in town.

Go to the San Diego Mission...

by JsusFreak

Go to the San Diego Mission and the hillside presidio, San Diego Zoo, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Sea World, Balboa Park, the Beaches, etc. The wonderful weather here.....but it can get hot though....but fortunately, there are beaches and public pools nearby :-)

Heritage Park Senlis Cottage ~ interiors

by Pawtuxet

The Senlis Cottage was built for Eugene Senlis in 1896. He was an employee of the San Duiego pioneer horticulturist, Kate Sessions. (we met her on another tip about Balboa Park). This is a typical example of a home for working-class people. It now houses the Park Ranger office and rest rooms as well as the museum exhibit space. It seems funny to me to visit these historic like this one considered so old. We moved out of a house built in 1895 to go to a house built in it's hard for me to think about them as museums.

Antique Weight Machine

by vigi

I took this picture because first time I saw this kind of antique weight machine. But then afterwards I found out there are everywhere in the States... in California and Louisiana! lol

Here we finish our days in San Diego. Went back to hotel, rest, and next morning heading up to Los Angeles.

Making A Statement

by lmkluque

Whether it is a colored ribbon on the lapel, flags flying over the home, a yard full of political posters or a grand display of Christmas lights, San Diegans can be demonstrative with their statements.

During his recent visit to San Diego, Matcrazy was surprised to see a Polish flag flying next to an American flag, letting all who pass the house know these people have strong ties to Poland.

An especially pleasing sight is the creative efforts of people decorating their homes during the holidays. Halloween is becoming more popular as a chance to decorate the yard with pumpkins, witches, skeletons and sparkling orange lights. However, it is still Christmas time that we see the really impressive displays. Most residential streets have at least a few houses all decked out for the holiday and many just a few lights strung along the roof or windows. There are a few streets throughout SD county that offer grand decorations at every house on the block and it is usually on the family's list of things to do, to drive or walk along those blocks to see the great gift given.

ღ (~_~)♫♫ I wish you a Merry Christmas♫, I wish you a Merry Christmas♫♫, I wish you a Merry Christmas♫, and a Happy New Yeaaaaar♫♫ (~_~)ღ ღ

Thank you "sayedaburas " for a very clever gift!
