the world's smartest travel social network
This is a great month to travel in Southern California. The weather is cooler, but the “rainy season” hasn’t started, and daylight savings time doesn’t end until November 6.
In La Jolla, San Diego’s favorite coastal community, visitors can expect daytime temperatures of about 75°F (22°C) and overnight lows of around 58°F (14°C).
Kids are free
During the month of October, kids 12 and under are free at 24 San Diego County museums when accompanied by a paying adult. The program is limited to two children per adult and requires a coupon that can be downloaded at http://www.sandiegomuseumcouncil.org/
In La Jolla, the museums include Birch Aquarium at Scripps, the La Jolla Historical Society, and the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art La Jolla.
Kids will find lots of things to do at Birch Aquarium, including hands-on exhibits with marine life, viewing underwater wonders in the Hall of Fishes, and watching the Shark Reef feeding.
Elsewhere in San Diego, young visitors will enjoy free admission at the museums in Balboa Park, at the San Diego Zoo, and at the San Diego Safari Park
