Host to what’s widely regarded as one of the best climates in the world, and boasting an enviable combination of spectacular mountains-to-ocean natural beauty and a vibrant arts, culture, and entertainment scene, San Diego’s amazing to visit all year long—but fall has its own special magic here in Southern California, no question!

Land yourself the perfect perch for enjoying the season in and around America’s Finest City with Marriott Autograph Collection accommodations here at Hotel Republic in Downtown San Diego.

From Halloween events and fall festivals to grade-A outdoor recreation and sightseeing, autumn’s a fabulous time to fall under San Diego’s spell. Here are some possibilities for your Hotel Republic itinerary this wonderful time of year!

Fall Festivals & Events in San Diego

You will, of course, find festivals and special events going on all across the calendar in San Diego, and fall lays claim to some of the highest-profile. Raise a stein and don your best lederhosen or dirndls, for instance, at one of multiple Oktoberfest celebrations in the region, including Craftoberfest (September 22nd through October 1st), East Village Oktoberfest (September 30th), and Ocean Beach Oktoberfest (October 6th through the 7th).

The fall festival calendar also definitely tilts cinematic, what with annual events such as the San Diego Italian Film Festival (October 3rd through the 14), the San Diego Filipino Film Festival (October 3rd through the 8th), and the San Diego International Film Festival (October 18th through the 22nd) underway.

Then there’s Fleet Week San Diego (November 8th through the 12th), the foodie-friendly San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival (November 9th through the 13th)—well, the list truly goes on and on!

Fall Sports in America’s Finest City

The same goes for the sporting lineup this fall, with everything from the 36th annual  XTERRA Wetsuit Mission Bay Triathlon (October 15th) to Petco Park’s San Diego Padres baseball action and Snapdragon Stadium’s San Diego Wave FC soccer excitement on tap.

Getting in the Halloween-y Spirit of Things on a Hotel Republic Getaway

And, of course, a goodly chunk of the season comes infused with Halloween vibes. Your Hotel Republic guest room or suite gives you loads of options for embracing those vibes. Consider scaring yourself silly at a haunted-house attraction such as the Haunted Trail of Balboa Park or The Scream Zone at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, going on a paranormal tour at the famously haunted Whaley House Museum, or doing the family-friendly thing at a local pumpkin patch such as the Goff Family Pumpkin Patch at Liberty Station or Mr. Jack O’ Lanterns Pumpkin Patch in La Jolla.
