I went to San Diego a couple of years back in June. It wasn't really warm enough for shorts, and I understand this phenomena (June gloom) is quite common for SoCal.

You're also into hurricane season by then although admittedly only the first part of it.

What about flying to Tampa and going somewhere on Florida's west coast? That also gives you the flexibility to get out the way if a storm does come along.

You then get BA back from TPA, MIA or MCO.

Save yourself the hassle and just visit the beach the weather will be good, they eye candy even better and no need for flying

If you are considering Florida
LAS-MIA on AA F will get you 180TPs to held retain Gold status. K-UP fares are usually reasonable.

Agreed, then a short drive across Alligator Alley to Naples, where it will be warm, and have a beautiful beach. Good shopping and restaurants too!
