May or June

50's couple looking at mid May to mid June 2014 to visit the San Diego area. Planning on stay in Escondido. Now sure it matter concerning weather, but what about crowds. Is the 2nd week in May better than 1st week in June.

Is there a big diffence in weather and crowds durring this 4 week period as well as difference between San Diego and Escondido?

Thanks for the advice.

I don't know of any difference between those times. I don't know when kids get let out for summer vacation - whether it's the beginning of June or not. I'm sure someone else here on TA will know.

Might I ask why Escondido? It's not a good place to base yourself for seeing San Diego. Lots of time will be spent on the freeway and getting around to the beach, sites, etc. Is that location a must? i.e. an exchange or family ?

I did just realize that the first week in June could be busier / more crowded because it bumps up to the Memorial Day holiday.

Escondido because of an exchange. Plus not there for beaches nor just for San Diego.

Thanks for the quick response.

Schools are usually still in session in May, so it would be less crowded. This year many schools finished June 7 and later.

I agree, May would be better when it come to crowds.

Right now, the beaches are saturated with tourists.
