Visiting San Diego Metropolitan Area

The Starlight Parade in Chula Vista, a Holiday Gala Dinner Cruise on San Diego Bay, the North Park Toyland Parade & Festival, and Balboa Park’s December Nights – it’s the holiday season in San Diego. Festivities abound across San Diego County. Sports fans don’t miss the 2012 San Diego Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl, and the 2013 PGA Farmers Insurance Open in La Jolla. Athletes and runners work off seasonal calories at the San Diego Fiesta Island Beach Blast Triathlon and the New Year's Eve Goruck Challenge San Diego Adventure Race. It’s the season for fun, festivities, holidays and adventures in San Diego.

There’s nothing like the sight of twinkling lights on the water, to invite the holiday spirit. The community of Oceanside, in North San Diego County, hosts the 2012 Oceanside Parade of Lights on the waters of Oceanside Harbor. From fishing boats and yachts, to dinghys and kayaks, watercraft are lit and decorated for the Oceanside Holiday Boat Parade on December 8th.

The same day, Mission Bay, north of downtown San Diego, hosts the 2012 Mission Bay Christmas Boat Parade. Featuring more than 100 boats decorated and lit for the holidays, the Mission Bay Boat Parade brightens the season. For best viewing, find a spot on Crown Point, the east side of Vacation Island or to the west of Fiesta Island.

Hold off on that New Year diet until the San Diego Restaurant Week is over. The 2013 Southern California culinary event is the week of January 13th through the 18th. Featuring prix fixe menus at San Diego’s most popular eateries, the 2013 San Diego Restaurant Week is a great way to sample that new restaurant on your list. More than 180 restaurants across San Diego County open their doors for Restaurant Week.

It's Bowl Season in Southern California and San Diego is on the schedule with the annual Holiday Bowl. Qualcomm Stadium hosts the 2012 Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl Game on December 27th. Spend the Christmas holidays in San Diego and enjoy Team Day at the San Diego Zoo or SeaWorld, the Bumble Bee Foods 5K and the 2012 Port of San Diego Big Bay Balloon Parade. Arrive at the game early for Slater’s 50/50 EndZoners Party with live music and traditional tailgate food.

Break in those new running shoes and be ready for the 2013 Carlsbad Marathon and Half Marathon, on January 27th. With a scenic course along Carlsbad Boulevard on the Pacific Ocean coast, and temperate Southern California weather, the Carlsbad Marathon is a great early season event. Families don’t miss the Kids Marathon Miles at LEGOLAND, on Saturday the 26th.
