There are two certainties about San Diego, it enjoys almost perfect weather and beaches, and it’s a perfect destination for a romantic getaway. From its fantastic oceanfront communities with super restaurants, to quiet secluded beach access, if you can’t get your mates heart pounding here, they left it home. With no shortages in romantic ideas here, lets check out some of the most popular.

Forget the vehicle and board the water taxi at the boardwalk out across the San Diego Harbor to Coronado Island for the day. Coronado has long been the playground for the rich and famous, mainly because it’s the home of the Hotel Del Coronado. This iconic red roofed hotel was the location of the film classic, Some Like It Hot, with its famous love scenes. Today, just strolling about the halls, visiting the museum, you can feel the awe of this still popular destination. Not only is the cozy lounge a nice place to check out, especially during happy hour, with live music, but the outdoor patio is a great place too. You can sit together, enjoy a glass of vino, and watch the boats cruise by, when not gazing in each other’s eyes.

Planning for that exciting Los Angeles Vacation

Written in US DESTINATIONS

Downtown Los Angeles

  • ADULT VISIT LA 1-3
  • LA fun off the wall 2

With excitement building for your upcoming Los Angeles vacation, planning your time there will be key to a successful and fun vacation. Keep in mind that Los Angeles is in fact, one big fantasy experience! This is the land of Hollywood, designer beach bodies, boob jobs and Mickey and Minne Mouse. Keep in mind that L.A. proper is located in over 450 square miles, packed with people, and you the visitor are the minority.

That being said, before you even arrive you should already have your itinerary planned, for the most part. Of course, have flexibility, because you will probably meet someone there who gives you advise or perhaps something to see and do you never thought of.

There are excellent locations that you can visit multiple popular locations all in one day. Take for instance the famous Hollywood Sign located high on the mountain overlooking L.A. You can easily take a drive first thing in the morning, head down to Hollywood proper to walk stroll the “Walk Of Fame”, then shop o Rodeo Drive. Now keep in mind that you probably just want to “window shop” and people watch on the streets of this famous shopping destination. Prices are quite high for you and the celebrity shoppers, but there are moderate prices shops as well as restaurants for lunch. Deciding to “dine with the stars”, you can easily find a sushi lunch in the neighborhood for a few hundred dollars.

Events in SanDiego 01Another multi experience day can be spent on the shoreline, by taking a drive early in the morning down to Venice Beach. Stroll the shops along the boardwalk and find a super café for coffee and a bagel. When the street entertainers show up, walk about with your camera and get some great photos of them, and maybe a body builder at “Muscle Beach”. Its an easy drive up to the Santa Monica Pier for a swim in the waters off the beach, a ride on the famous Ferris wheel, seafood lunch and maybe a handful of cotton candy while hitting the rides.

For the outdoor extremist, a great alternative would be to rent a beach cruiser and biking the 22-mile concrete bike path from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach in Torrance County. It’s a beautiful bike trip, all along the Pacific Ocean, with plenty of stops along the way.

Laughlin is one of those destinations you can choose to stop over on your way out to Las Vegas, or a destination in itself. This popular vacation destination is bordered by the mighty Colorado River and offers water sports, desert activities and of course gambling in its eleven casinos.

This is a very popular destination, especially during the hot summer weather, for boating and swimming in its cooler waters. You can easily make a day of it, just for the beaches, and of course restaurants. The Colorado River offers some excellent swimming and tubing, along with fishing, boating and even water skiing.

A fun “on the water” activity is taking a river or dinner cruise on one of the paddle wheel boats or yachts that will pick you up at your hotel.  This is one of the best opportunities for a photo with the famous London Bridge in the background.
