Located just outside San Diego is the more affluent coastal city of Carlsbad, which offers a worthwhile weekend escape from the city.
Valentine’s day might have been several months ago, but that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. And why would you want to be? Hanging out with your main-squeeze is a great time, right? That’s why he/she is your main-squeeze, isn’t it? So, getting down to it, “What romantic things are there to do in San Diego?” Well you’ve come to the right place, my friend. San Diego, with its miles of pristine coastline and incredible southern California weather make it a shoe-in for top romantic destinations. Here’s a quick breakdown:
Remember staring up into the night sky as a child and wondering what was out there? What the heavens hold is one of the oldest questions man has asked, and it’s only in our recent history that we could say with any certainty anything about the universe at all. Perhaps the intricacies of the universe will always baffle us, but no one can contest that some time spent out under the stars contemplating the enormity of this great thing we call life is time well spent. Consider then, heading to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in San Diego to rekindle some of that childhood magic.
Built along the harbor of San Diego, the Seaport Village is a local’s favorite yet designed for tourists. With everything under the sun as far as shopping, dining and looking out onto the bay is concerned, Seaport Village has just what you need to make the most of San Diego, without having to search far and wide.
If you find yourself in San Diego and you’re looking to head toward the beach, ask a local: almost any time is a good time to head toward the beach. Southern Californian weather, pretty typically, sits around the low 80s almost year round, so though the water may be a bit colder in the winter, you’re just as likely to get a good day at the beach in October as you are in June.
Got kids. Will travel.
This seems to be the going phrase nowadays, and why not? Exploration is just as much a part of youth as it is adulthood, but finding a balance between what is fun for the kiddies and what is fun for the elders seems to be getting trickier and trickier. Well, if you’re a young, fun-loving parent or even an old fuddy-duddy, there are still plenty of options available in order to ensure a great time will be had by all.
If you’re in the San Diego area, kids or not, it’s best to check out Belmont Park over by the Mission Beach Boardwalk (which, incidentally, is another great place to check out for any visitor to San Diego, new or old). Belmont Park has got everything – bumper cars, miniature golf, and rollercoasters – all on a beachfront setting.
