Valentine Ideas Romantic San Diego

Picnic - Pack all your favorite foods in a picnic lunch, grab a bottle of winer or your favorite drink, and head out for a picnic at a local park, hiking trail or beach. If you don't want to cook, buy take out from your love's favorite restaurant. I like Urban Plates - healthy choices anyone ranging from vegan to meat-and-potatoes guy.

Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts' Nite - If you love Disneyland, why not spend this special day at Disneyland California. There are special nights reserved for sweethearts, or just plan a fun day or or more.

See’s Candies - Treat your Sweetheart to a box of sweet candies from See’s. My favorite is a Custom Mix, a box of hand-selected chocolate. If you know what chocolates your valentine loves, such as dark chocolate with all nuts except peanuts, or milk chocolates with fruit filling, then you can choose just those special chocolates for your box. Discount gift certificates available at Costco. Multiple locations for See’s Chocolate stores, or order online at One of the time-honored Valentines Day Ideas.

Flower Ideas for Valentines Day - When ordering flowers, have them delivered 1-2 days in advance, so they can be enjoyed and admired before that special day. Or select a potted plant or flowering bulbs such as Dutch Iris, that can be planted and enjoyed for future years. Living plants make great Valentine Ideas!

Romantic Movie - Choose a romantic movie at a Cinepolis Luxury theatre on Valentine's Day, or pick out a romantic movie to watch online from home. Make reservations early to get the best reserved seats. Movie Theaters in San Diego

Romantic Bed and Breakfast - Extend your romantic weekend with Bed and Breakfast Getaway Gift Cards. These are a perfect last minute gift for your valentine. Sometimes you can find them at Costco at a discounted price.

Romantic Sunsets at the San Diego Beaches - Take advantage of our spectacular San Diego sunset at the beach, which occur around 5:30 pm in February. Make reservations for an early Valentines Day dinner at a fine San Diego restaurant with a view, such as Marine Room in La Jolla, Poseidon, or Jakes Del Mar. San Diego Best Restaurants

Romantic Valentines Day Ideas - Walk at the Beach - Enjoy a romantic walk at the beach at low tide in So Cal. On Valentines day in 2024, low tide is at 6:30 AM (sunrise 6:58 AM) and 6:00 PM (sunset 6:12 PM), so great time to walk the beach at sunrise or sunset and low tide. Windansea Beach beach is a romantic beach, perfect for some romantic beach photos especially at low tide. Children's Pool and La Jolla Cove are quite romantic. In north county, try Swamis and the views from the Self Realization Fellowship temple meditation grounds (closed Mondays).

The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery Dinner Show on Valentine's Day - Dates and times varies. This is one of the unique Valentines day ideas.
