When are the best times to visit La Mesa, California?

With hot summers and warm winters, deciding on the best time of year to visit La Mesa depends on what you want to do while you're there. While summer in La Mesa is hot, it's also one of the most popular times to visit the area. June through August sees average high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Since the area offers plenty of festivals and activities during this season, it's hard to find any type of hotel deal.

However, if you can schedule your visit to La Mesa for the fall, you can find some good hotels. While tourists will linger in the area through September to take advantage of average highs in the low 80s, by October and November they've gone home, so hotels will drop prices. Even though these two months aren't busy with visitors, you'll still enjoy average highs in the middle to upper 70s.

While winter is the coolest time of year in La Mesa, don't expect traditional winter weather like much of the rest of the country sees. In fact, from December to February, the area sees average high temperatures in the upper 60s. Plus, even though it doesn't snow in La Mesa, these are the wettest months of the year. However, since the weather isn't perfect, you can usually take advantage of some low hotel rates.

Another great season to plan a visit to La Mesa is spring. March through May sees average highs in the upper 60s and low 70s, which makes this time of year ideal to get outside. Just keep in mind that when visitors start coming back to the area toward the end of May, hotels will begin raising prices again.
