San Diego Halloween October Guide

I love San Diego in October.  Even though we don’t get the full effects of fall as far as the weather, San Diego has a very different feeling too it after October 1st.  From all the Oktoberfest activities and Halloween adventures to the Airshow, San Diego is the place to visit and experience Fall.

Right now off the coast of San Diego is the phenomena known as “Red tide“.  The Red tide is a bio luminescent glow originating from phytoplankton (large qtys of plankton) in the waters off our coast.  Some of the better spots to see this is La Jolla and Carlsbad.  Of course the adventure begins around dusk.

Another great event is Oktsoldierfest.  Not your typical Oktoberfest, Oktsoldierfest benefits the Warrior Foundation.  Drinking beer, listening to live music that benefits our soldiers is a no brainer.

When you are done drinking beer, you need to pick up a Pumpkin.  There are a ton of spots in San Diego for doing this, the best spot is Bates Nut Farm.  Bates Nut Farm offers their humungous Pumpkin Patch, Hayride, Maze, Pony Rides, Petting Zoo, Picnic area and shopping.  They are open every day from 9-5 from September 24th through Halloween.  Call 760-749-3333 for more details.

Happy October!
