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

Screen Shot 2017-12-23 at 7.18.55 PM

The presents are opened, the hot chocolate has been enjoyed, and now it’s time to occupy your guests and family members. But what do you do now? Thankfully, there are a great many things to do on Christmas Day in La Jolla. Make your plans with confidence and enjoy a beautiful Holiday in a beautiful city with plenty of opportunity for fun and relaxation

Grab something warm to drink:

Stay dry, warm up and relax with a piping hot beverage at one of La Jolla’s many comfy cafes. We highly recommend The Brick & Bell Cafe, Harry’s Coffee Shop & Gallery, Girard Gourmet, Gold Fish Pointe Cafe, or the Mission Coffee Cup. These are all fantastic spots to meet with friends, hold an impromptu meeting, or simply enjoy a book or meet new friends.

Go out to eat:

Cooking? No thank you. You’ve already made everything wonderful for your guests and it’s time for you to enjoy them. A great many restaurants are open on Christmas Day. Visit our restaurants page to pick the perfect spot!

Go to a museum:

Walking is good exercise (better than running some experts say). Why not expand your mind and enrich your knowledge in one of La Jolla’s museums? Individuals or groups may engage in sensibly crafted art exhibits at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego (MCASD), the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, or even pop into the La Jolla Historical Society to increase your knowledge with respect to local history. For an extensive diversity of museums and genres, you may want to head slightly south to world famous San Diego’s Balboa Park. In this expansive district, there are 17 museums to choose from, and Balboa Park definitely has a bit of something for everyone!

Hit the Beach

Christmas beach stroll, anyone? That will certainly make the food you’ll eat later feel a bit more guilt-free!) There’s nothing quite like a beach for creating holiday memories that will stay with you so make sure you bring your camera so you’ll have remembrances you can touch and see. Check out La Jolla’s beaches here.

Take in a Movie

There was a time not too long ago that movie studios thought of films released this season almost like Christmas gifts to their audiences. There are a great many theaters in La Jolla, and this year you can see films that range from already classic kids films like Coco to blockbusters like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Drama more your cup of tea? Don’t worry. There are a wide variety of films available in just about every genre.
