This past weekend we had the chance to get away to San Diego. Friends of ours were getting married at the San Diego Yacht Club and I had some work stuff going on down there as well so we made it a weekend full of fun. Although we live in Northern California and technically within driving distance, flying seemed much better for us. We ended up flying Southwest Airlines which is personally my favorite for the price. After a quick hour long flight, we landed in San Diego and headed to our hotel. I have worked with tons of hotels but for this trip I decided not to so it was less stressful. After doing some searching, we booked a balcony king room at the Ramada by Wyndham in Point Loma. Right across from the boating docks and food, it was the perfect location. It also came with free breakfast and free airport shuttle which was a huge bonus for us.
After we got settled, I went off to do some work. Being a social media content creator has many benefits, one especially being that I can work where ever I want! That took a bit longer than expected but afterwards we headed back and enjoyed dinner at one of my all time favorites The Melting Pot. Matthew surprised me with a special table secluded in a corner and rose pedals with candles. Talk about perfect! This location is located in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp District and rates #1 in the entire nation out of all the Melting Pot restaurants. It did not disappoint!
Afterwards we walked around Gaslamp District a bit then called an Uber to take us back to the hotel. Originally we planned on getting a rental car but for the short trip and price difference, Uber was definitely the way to go. Convenient, easy, and we actually met some super interesting drivers along the way. The next morning I woke up early to work then we grabbed some breakfast to eat on the balcony. We paid an extra $40 for the balcony and it was so worth it! Being able to over look the boats and see all that was going on while taking in the salty air was perfect. We knew we wanted to visit a beach so search which was closest which happened to be Ocean Beach. What an interesting beach with people of all backgrounds and cultures. We walked down the pier where many had been fishing since way before the sun came up. We got to see surfers catching some waves and walked along the shore until finishing our adventure at a local coffee shop.
After our quick Uber back, we changed into some more comfy clothes and explored the Fisherman’s Landing across the street. With views of the nearby Navy Base, a 250 million dollar yacht owned by Dennis Washington, and some of the best pizza I’ve had in California, it was another fun adventure.
Afterwards, we went back to the hotel and decided it was time to begin getting ready. As a woman with long hair, it takes me awhile! After I finished, it was just in time to take an Uber over to the wedding and we spent the rest of the night there. It was a beautiful reception and we are so happy we got the chance to attend. The next morning we had an early flight home and although I’m definitely sad it went by so fast, it was a perfect weekend. I have traveled to several California beaches and cities, San Diego definitely won me over!
