July is National Picnic Month – Find a new favorite destination!


July is in full swing and with the beautiful San Diego weather, it’s no secret that there are hundreds of parks to visit! Thanks to the National Bakers’ Association, we recognize July as National Picnic Month. Plus, the sun is finally out in San Diego so seasonal fruits and vegetables make eating outdoors so much easier!
