Savoring Sun-Filled Nights
in San Diego
March 18.2024

With daylight savings in full swing and warmer weather on the way, San Diego residents are blessed with glorious extra hours of evening sunlight. Before you know it, the sun won't set until close to 8 p.m. Here are some fun ideas to help you soak up that bonus vitamin D.

Outdoor Dining

San Diego's amazing summer-like nights are perfect for grabbing food or drinks on an outdoor patio. Or pack a picnic to enjoy at a park! Some great outdoor options include: 

Craft & Commerce in Little Italy, Jake's Del Mar situated right on the beach in Del Mar, or Sea & Sky at Hotel La Jolla. 

Hit the Beach

What's better than an after-work or after-dinner stroll on the beach? Throw on some sandals and soak in those sunset views at golden hour. Look for dolphins, take a dip, or just decompress with the sound of the waves.

Explore A New Trail

San Diego's endless hiking trails take on a whole new atmosphere when basked in the evening light. Pack a small snack and drink to fuel an invigorating but low-key hike to catch the day's last rays. Torrey Pines State Park and Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve are both popular options that offer various trails for all levels of hikers. 

The options are endless when you have the added daylight. Even a simple walk around the neighborhood feels refreshing. Don't squander those extra rays of sunshine!
