Things to do in San Diego During the Holidays

One again the holiday season is upon us, and as in the past, I am amazed at how much there is to do.

Seems like every town has a tree lighting ceremony, a parade and other events for the residents and visitors, and you can’t possibly do all this stuff, plus get your shopping done.

Here is a sampling of the things that seemed most interesting, but it is far from a complete list. Plus some other important dates to note

The annual parade and tree lighting on December 1. Here is a more detailed write-up on this popular event on the coast.
