Southern California is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, and home to over 23 million residents! The pacific coastline is endless with plenty of beautiful beaches to spend a sunny day in SoCal. Among these choices there is one city that stands out above the rest. San Diego is known for its warm climate, 70 miles of incredible beaches and a variety of world class family attractions. Luckily, we are located within a three hour drive which makes it the perfect weekend getaway. One of our favorite things to do in San Diego is visit the Bay to spend the perfect date night. In this article we’ll be highlighting our recommendation activities and accomodation.
Where to Stay
Welcome to the Wyndham San Diego Bayside! This property features upscale lodging, an outdoor heated pool, a fitness center, and a free airport shuttle. There are also plenty of onsite dining options available such as Claim Jumper which is located inside the hotel, Hazelwoods on the Bay, and the famous Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse which is located directed adjacent to the building. In addition, their convenient location is within a reasonable distance of many activities to choose from such as snorkeling, kayaking, biking, boating, sailing, and one of our personal favorites dinner cruises! Finally, one of our favorite features that the resort offers when staying here is their balcony views of the bay.
Photography is a huge passion of ours and we feel this hotel has great opportunities for watching and capturing beautiful sunrise and sunset shots. Since the rise of COVID-19 in March 2020, our trips have been limited and we have found that people are doing more staycation road trips! We were impressed by all the health & safety measures taken by Wyndham San Diego Bayside. We felt comfortable and everything at the hotel was sanitized daily, socially distanced, and very clean.
The Perfect Date Night Idea
San Diego Bay stretches 34 miles of waterfront lined with exquisite yachts, trendy shops, delicious restaurants, and entertainment for guests to enjoy. Our top recommendation for the perfect date night is a dinner cruise on the bay. Enjoy a three-course dinner menu, sparkling champagne, refreshing cocktails, and stunning bayside views. Not to mention, relax, listen to music, and put on your dancing shoes for a night you will not forget. During Covid 19, dancing is restricted as of now on dinner cruises however they have a wonderful dinner playlist to enjoy with your loved one by the bay. It is time to grab your tickets and head down to the docks! Welcome to Flagship Cruises San Diego!
Flagship Cruises & Events
Set sail on San Diego Bay with Flagship Cruises San Diego for an unforgettable experience. Often referred to as the best dinner cruise in San Diego, Flagship boasts a fleet of luxury yachts with over 102 years of sailing service. Our recent experience aboard the California Spirit was delightful. This is Flagships largest, newest and most elegant addition. At 158 feet in length, she is the perfect venue for any occasion and can accommodate up to 600 guests seating up to 300 diners. Our night began with receiving a complimentary glass of champagne while boarding the vessel.
Soon after followed a three-course gourmet dinner however we couldn’t resist adding on some of their delicious appetizers.
Guests enjoyed free onboard WIFI and their choice of indoor or outdoor seating. We recommend sitting in the back of the ship on the middle deck for less wind and dazzling views of the bay.
The yacht offers 360-degree views of the San Diego skyline, Baybridge, Coronado, and as far as Mexico.
