Beach in December

We will be in San Diego the week after Christmas. I want to visit Pacific Beach and Mission Beach areas. Will there be lots of people at the beach that time of year? I know the water will be VERY cold, so we don't plan to try swimming or anything. I would just like to hang out at the beach. I know the weather can vary, and it's going to be colder at the beach so I'm thinking jeans and sweatshirts? Am I on the right track?

Yes you're on the right track.

However, if we get a warm spell, the beach area might pick up.

Welcome to the San Diego Forum,

One thing you can always count on San Diego is that if it's sunny the beach is cool to go there...

People like to hang out there Plus you have a place called "Wave House" right on the boardwalk full bar, all set on beach sand plus a fire pit to keep you warm outside.

or go upstairs to "Cains" upper deck, perfect for a sunset...

All theses places within a few feet of each other.

Have fun and post your report when you get home.
