What Makes San Diego the Perfect Honeymoon Spot?

January 7, 2021

You’re getting married, so congratulations! Now it’s time to start planning for your honeymoon. But with seemingly endless destination choices, you may be wondering where to go. San Diego is a great place to spend a honeymoon, and you can read below for some reasons newlyweds should make reservations at one of the most ideally located San Diego hotels and start their married lives in America’s Finest City.

Beautiful Beaches

Miles of coastline—more than 65, in fact—make this city in Southern California a paradise for those who love warm weather with plenty of sun. Take a walk or run on the beach, go for a swim, or try your hand at surfing during a couple’s class. Or plan a beach picnic before tanning and watching the waves crash.

Balboa Park

If land-based activity is more your style, go for a stroll around world-famous Balboa Park. Pop into the museums, catch a movie at the theater, or roam through the botanical gardens. Animal lovers will adore the San Diego Zoo and its sister location, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, both of which give visitors a chance to learn about wildlife protection, education, and conservation through immersive exhibits and experiences. Rare and endangered animals can be seen up close, and programs offered throughout the day and night add to the overall experience.

Downtown Fun & Food

Sports lovers will love cozying up at a San Diego Padres game during baseball season. While you wait for the game to start, admire the ocean views from Petco Park, grab a beer or a snack, and prepare for an action-packed game. Speaking of snacks, San Diego is a foodie’s paradise, with seafood, steakhouses, and Mexican food being standouts. Dining in Old Town, Little Italy, the Gaslamp Quarter, or any spot by the water is highly recommended.

Craft Breweries

Craft beer enthusiasts will feel right at home, as more than 85 craft breweries are based in San Diego. Touring a brewery is a good way to get a literal taste of the region. Many pubs and restaurants also offer comprehensive tasting menus. Top off your meal with a drink and say “cheers” to your wonderful honeymoon to remember.

Proximity to a Variety of Fantastic Locations

If you want a change of scenery, San Diego’s convenient location offers endless opportunities for day trips. Mexico, a short stone’s throw away, offers even more excellent food and culture. Newport Beach, just to the north in Orange County, offers sandy beaches, trendy shops, drool-worthy restaurants, and mansions to ogle at, while Temecula offers wine for vino enthusiasts. Hillside tours offer a great romantic escape for couples, since tourists visit this destination less often than San Diego. Wander around the city and then top the day off with some of the country’s best wine. Your upcoming SoCal trip will be one to remember.

Whether you’re celebrating your honeymoon or you’re simply taking a few days away to spend with your sweetheart, you’ll find the perfect mix of comfort and convenience at Sunrise Inn San Diego, one of the most affordable hotels near downtown San Diego.
