Fun Things to do in San Diego – Fall 2021

We are excited at the prospect of welcoming our students back to campus for the Fall 2021 semester, which is just weeks away!

As a native San Diegan, I love to talk with new students about my city and offer suggestions on all the wonderful things to do and see in what has been coined as “America’s Finest City.”

Many parks and amusements have been closed due to the pandemic but have reopened with new vitality and look forward to welcoming visitors from all over the world to partake in their offerings. I am sharing just a few of those with you. *Imagine in just weeks, you can experience some of these for yourself!
