Looking for the perfect time to visit San Diego? You'd be hard pressed to beat October, a month when crowds have thinned following the back-to-school period. On top of that, October 2016 is the city's 5th annual 'Kids Free San Diego Month.'

While you could argue that San Diego’s near-perfect climate makes it a great bet any time of year, families have an extra reason to visit October’s city-wide Kid Kingdom promotion.

All month long, kids eat, stay and play for free at over 100 participating partners in San Diego, with many offers for free kids' meals and free admission for kids at popular theme parks such as Legoland and SeaWorld.

When is Kidvasion in San Diego?
