North County Coastal San Diego Living

So, what is there to do in North County Coastal San Diego?

For the purposes of this guide, I’ll focus on the beaches, parks and nature preserve’s (all with terrific trails). But first, let’s start with what gets us outdoors…the amazing weather!

North County Coastal San Diego Weather

As is the case with other parts of San Diego, the coastal areas typically enjoy the four seasons (Spring, Spring, early Summer and Summer).

While a slight exaggeration, it pretty much is true.

If you were to count up the days when it felt really hot (in the mid 80’s) and really chilly (in the low 50’s), it would total about 2-3 weeks. The weather is that near-prefect.

Please keep in mind, that because the coastal region does extend up to 6 miles inland, communities further away from the Pacific Ocean will have a higher and lower temperature (but not by much).
