San Diego and San Diego County in spring and summer entice visitors with a diversity of events, activities, and destinations. Stop by the San Diego Museum of Man in Balboa Park to see the Empowering Women exhibit. Head outside for fresh air whale watching in the Pacific Ocean off San Diego, or enjoy a sunset cruise through San Diego Harbor.

South of San Diego in El Cajon, Cajon Classic Cruise fills downtown with vintage and classic cars Wednesday evenings. Don't miss SeaWorld’s 50th Celebration – A Sea of Surprises, taking place throughout the summer. Bacon lovers, don’t miss Bacon & Barrels  at the end of May at the Embarcadero Marina Park South.

Celebrate spring north of San Diego at the spring 2014 Escondido Downtown Street Faire. Held May 18th on historic Grand Avenue in Escondido, the fair features over 500 vendors, live entertainment, food, and drinks. A collaboration between the Escondido Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Business Association, the Grand Avenue Spring Festival is a must for San Diego County visitors.

The U.S. Navy hosts the 28th Bay Bridge Run/Walk, also on Sunday May 18th. The 2014 Bay Bridge crossing is a four-mile run or walk over the Coronado Bay Bridge from downtown San Diego to Tidelands Park in Coronado. Participate and enjoy spectacular views of San Diego Bay or cheer on family and friends at the finish line party in Tidewater Park, either way this is a great way to spend a Sunday morning.
