Turn Your Staycation into a Memorable Vacation
As a San Diego local, you’re spoiled with gorgeous year-round weather, plenty of options for sandy beaches, and nonstop activities to choose from. With all these elements at your fingertips, San Diego is the perfect place to take a staycation while still feeling like you’re a world away. Here are a few tips to turn your San Diego staycation into an unforgettable getaway.
Try Something New
Everyone has a “someday” activity that they think would be fun to do in their own town, but usually never get to it since it seems so accessible. Think it would be fun to play tourist and go on a ghost tour? What about hang gliding at the Torrey Pines Gliderport? Never been to the USS Midway? Your staycation is the perfect time to book that “someday” activity.
Wake Up by the Bay
You’re on vacation, so treat yourself to extra perks that you may not have at home. Use that extra money that you saved by not booking a flight for an upgraded room at your hotel. At the Catamaran, start your day from a bay front room where you’ll wake up to stunning Mission Bay panoramas just steps from the sand.
Beach All Day
Take a cue from San Diego visitors: beach, sleep, repeat. Since you’re traveling from nearby, make sure to bring all the essentials for a comfortable experience: a cooler with your favorite refreshments, a good book, and plenty of sunscreen. At the Catamaran, you can also visit the concierge for fun summer beach games to play like frisbees, footballs, corn hole, and spike ball.
Dine with a View
There are few things as wonderful as savoring a delicious meal with excellent company and stunning views. For that ultimate vacation experience, book a table at Oceana Coastal Kitchen an hour before sunset and linger over fresh sushi rolls, delicious California fare, and a bottle of wine for the rest of the evening.
Test the Waters
Being a local, you’re constantly around San Diego’s beautiful ocean and bays. Enjoy a fresh perspective and spend an afternoon cruising on Mission Bay on a sail boat, speed boat, or pontoon rental. With several Action Sports Rentals locations on the bay, you’re never far from an exciting day on the water on your next staycation.
