It’s A Date! Finding Romance in La Jolla

Candlelight. Wine. Gazing at the stars. A moonlight walk on the beach. These are certainly characteristic images of romance for all the right reasons. Whether you have a special occasion to rejoice in or merely want to spend some remarkable time together, La Jolla’s ever scenic and sandy shores are always available to arrange the unspoiled backdrop for the picture-perfect date.

Why not have a Romantic Picnic?

Got romance? Begin a fantastic day off working in those exceptional details sure to prompt a sincere smile. Packing a picnic lunch is a great case in point. Lay down a blanket and embellish it with your date’s favorite appetizers and beverages to show you truly know what they like. A picnic on the grassy areas at La Jolla Cove or La Jolla Shores is highly recommended, where you and your date can munch out while overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean. On the other hand, if you’re seeking to make a beach trip out of your date, give it a shot at Blacks Beach or Boomer Beach.

Go on An Adventure!

Nothing speaks true romance like an exciting activity! Perhaps your date has always wanted to try hang gliding or jet skiing? Why not grab your special someone and prepare for a great escapade? Conversely, how about a romantic day of horse back riding? If the ocean is more in tune with your flair and senses, you can always snorkel and scuba, or even venture out for a full day of sailing.  La Jolla definitely has everything for the perfect date that will long be remembered.

Dining with an Ocean View

Didn’t mama tell you that sometimes the way to a heart is through the stomach? Why not share an appreciation for both food and each another at one of La Jolla’s heavenly, fine dining locations? If you’re taking this route, ensure that you book reservations ahead of time. Not only do reservations assure a table of your choice if you book in advance, but it demonstrates to your special loved one that you went out of your way and took the extra time and thoughtfulness to plan the repast ahead of time. This is sure to make your date feel considerably more extraordinary. Unfamiliar with fine dining in La Jolla? No worries! Some of the more romantic restaurants in La Jolla consist of The Shores, which is positioned right on the sand, Brockton Villa, which extends a panoramic observation of the Pacific, and the Marine Room, a restaurant which is acknowledged as an influential part of the community and also the recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award in 2013. Fine food prepared by exceptional chefs and decadent wines of the highest quality served by friendly and accommodating staff are the rule at these incomparable restaurants.

Get a Room

Getting all snuggly and comfy? If anybody advises you and your date to get a room, take them up on it and go for the gusto! It truly goes without saying (but why not say it anyway) that La Jolla has some of the finest hotels in the entire state. Be sure to check out La Jolla’s hotels HERE
