The first weekend of February brings lots of fun to San Diego (and hopefully a break in the rain). If it’s not raining, head to Mission Trails for a Saturday nature walk with the family, or participate in the Super Run 5K downtown. Not to worry if those little drops are falling from the sky as there’s plenty to do indoors too. Grab a pass and take advantage of Macy’s Museum Month. Make Valentine crafts at a local Michael’s store. Or take in Disney’s “Freaky Friday” at the La Jolla Playhouse. Have a great weekend!
