San Diego Whale Watching

January is the time for whale watching in the San Diego Bay. Go on a naturalist-guided whale watching adventure, offered by the Birch Aquarium. It’s a mere $35 (on weekends) for this unforgettable experience.

NASSA Surf Competition

The National Scholastic Surfing Association surf competition is regarded as the highest level of surfing competition for the Western United States to many avid surfers, so put on your bathing suit, grab your sunglasses and beach towel, and head over to Oceanside Pier to show your support. The event is Saturday and Sunday from 7am to 5pm, and best of all, it’s free to watch.

San Diego resident for over 10 years, I now call this beautiful city home. Originally from the Bay Area, I'm a California girl at heart. I love the outdoors, fitness, food, and a good craft beer (from San Diego of course).
