San Diego also has a great transportation system – if you don’t rent a car and want to avoid taxis, you can ride the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) – a combination light-rail and bus transit system that’s very affordable.

Walkable San Diego

The trolly system runs from El Cajon and Santee on the northeast to San Ysidro and the border in the southwest.

San Diego is also a very walkable city – the great weather means you can use your feet almost year-round to get around, especially downtown. We even walked this last trip from the heart of Downtown San Diego up to Hillcrest, and back. It’s a bit of a hike, but you pass through some great neighborhoods.

San Diego is an all-year city – averaging a high of 77 degrees in the summer to a low of 64 degrees in December.

So bring your bathing suit!
