Enjoy a Unique Valentine’s Day in San Diego

HomeHolidays in San DiegoEnjoy a Unique Valentine’s Day in San Diego

The truth of the matter is there is never a bad time to visit San Diego, but for those who hail from colder climes, a winter visit, perhaps a romantic trip over Valentine’s Day in San Diego, may come pretty close to being the best time to explore. Offering sunny skies with very little rainfall, temperatures that almost reach 70 degrees and never fall into the freeze zone, and a natural beauty that rivals (but never exceeds) the beauty of your love, your San Diego winter escape only needs one more thing to make it perfect: a stay in our Vacation Rentals by Kimberly, holiday hideaways! This guide will make it all clear. Here are the top things to do for valentine’s day in San Diego

Breakfast at the Little Lion Café, 1424 Sunset Cliffs Boulevard, Closed Tuesdays 

As you start your day of romance, a hearty breakfast is important to the success of your adventures and a cozy meal at the Little Lion Café is destined to give you the meal you deserve. Offering a menu filled with California style breakfasts, innovative sides such as jalapeño duck & bacon sausage and buttermilk green onion biscuits will make you glad you skipped donuts at Dodo Bird on this special Valentine’s Day.  

A Day at the Park 

A picnic at the park is always a romantic idea, but Balboa Park isn’t your ordinary park, offering museums, shops, restaurants, and of course, picnic tables for intimate meals, ensuring that you will need to spend the entire day, not just a quick lunch, exploring all that you can do. The gardens of Balboa (there are over 10 gardens existing in this 1200 acres of land) include healing ones, desert ones, and a Veterans Memorial Garden, all providing places to enjoy the beauty of the flora and the feeling of peace. The Zoro Garden was once a nudist colony, but today, humans keep their clothes on as they explore the world of the butterflies that make their home in the plants and flowers that it is comprised of. 17 different museums give guests the opportunity to explore science, culture, humanity, and pop culture (the Comic Con museum is the first of its kind), and when you need to eat or want to sit and sip, a variety of restaurants will provide exactly what you need. Prado, located at 1549 El Prado and offering an expansive menu of California delights is our favorite. 

Sunsets at Sunset Cliffs 

The tried-and-true romantic activities can actually be the ones that don’t cost a thing, and the views of the sunset at Sunset Cliffs offer a perfect example. Quite literally the best place in San Diego to watch this natural phenomenon, the most romantic moments can be the ones you spend here, watching the sky turn to fire over the sea below and if you have been thinking of asking a certain someone the most important question you have ever asked, just know that it is nearly impossible to say no when proposed to at Sunset Cliffs. 

The Meal You Will Never Forget 

There are many traditions involved with Valentine’s Day, but perhaps none are as important as the Valentine’s Day meal and with San Diego being a foodie’s paradise, there are plenty of restaurants that will show your Valentine that you love him or her best. 

  • El Sueño, 2836 Juan Street in San Diego – Enjoy an authentic taste of the Southwest with a visit to El Sueño, located in the old town area. Offering traditional Mexican meals and a jungle décor, Valentine’s dreams can come true at El Sueño. 
  • VAGA Restaurant & Bar, 2259 Avenida de la Playa in La Jolla – For a truly spectacular Valentine’s meal, VAGA Restaurant & Bar never fails to impress, offering a special menu and views of the sea that add to the experience. 

Sweets for Your Sweetest 

Another Valentine’s Day tradition will be all that much sweeter when you visit Chuao Chocolatier, 2350 Camino Vida Roble #101 in Carlsbad. Offering the best chocolates in town, there will be no doubt that you cherish your Valentine when you give her carte blanche in this sweet shop, and if their chocolates become her new obsession, their online shop will ensure she never has to go without.
