San Diego or Phoenix in June

My husband & I are planning a trip to either San Diego or Phoenix in June so we can catch Tiger baseball games. I've been to Phoenix, love it, but have never been to San Diego. I'm a nature lover, birdwatcher,sun-worshipper,writer,runner...
Which would you choose?

San Diego, no contest. San Diego is a beautiful city with lots to see and do and it won't be 115 degrees in June. Phoenix is fun too (in fact I'm leaving for Phoenix in 2 days) but the heat can be unbearable.

Native SD and would love for you to be here and watch our Padres kick butt over the Tiger's but with our June Gloom it can get funky with all the fog along the coast..
Phoenix has killer deals on 5* for around $100 and the sun and fun are really nice to hang around the pool and the BOB is great to catch a Tiger/DBack game..
I have gotten some of the best deals on resorts in June/July in Phoenix for resorts that I would no way pay $1K a night like the Phoenician, Biltmore, Boulder's, Sanctuary, Princess..
Expedia is a good source to gauge prices and hotels..

my look at the schedule shows the tigers playing in Phoenix May 16-18

You may wish to wait until single game tickets are available and then see which has the best seats.

For dback games, I always get in the upper level behind the plate. I think it's a great view, is moderately priced and are easily available.

My husband and I have been to San Diego many times. It's a beautiful area and there are many places outside of the city to hike and to see birds.

If you decide to fly to Phoenix to see a game, stay there for a few days then drive to Sierra Vista.

My husband is a birdwatcher and we have been to SV many times. It's about 90 mins. from Tucson. If this interests you, let me know and I'll give you the names of the B&Bs where we've stayed.

If you've never been to San Diego, you have to go. It's so beautiful.

closer to Phoenix for bird watching is Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Superior, east of Phoenix.

Dude, EASY CALL - San Diego all the way. This is like asking someone if you would rather attend a U2 concert or a Vanilla Ice concert.

I'm glad someone agrees with me. Since you've been to the French Laundry, you will appreciate this: it's like choosing between dinner there or dinner at the Hometown Buffet. No contest.

For the love of pete, don't come to this forsaken boiling hot dustbowl of an oven in June! Go to san diego. Go enjoy a place where you can actually walk outside for more than 3 minutes in June and not have to be rushed to the hospital. Go walk on the beach, breathe the salt air, get a tan, eat some good seafood! I'm from arizona and run away to San Diego as often as I can to escape the opressiveness of the summer weather here. Last year we had temps over 90 degrees from March to October and temps over 115 for something like a million days in a row. Listen to me, for your own good, run away, run far, far away!!!!

Detroit plays in SD June 20-22, so the decision might depend on which month you can travel. Mid May in Phoenix is not too bad - depends on where you are from and your attitude.

I was shocked when I met a clerk in a bakery in England who told me how much she liked visiting Phoenix in August!
