Planning a Surprise Trip to San Diego

Jump to last reply

I am planning to surprise my husband with a trip to San Diego this summer. I want to do something really special without completely breaking the bank. My thought is 6 or 7 days, with most nights somewhere in the city and one or two nights at the Hotel Del Coronado (this would be the massive surprise of the entire trip). Since HDC is so very pricey, would it be worth our while to stay just one night in an ocean view or ocean front room and then spend the rest of the trip in or very near the city? Wherever we stay the longest I would like to be in walking distance of restaurants and bars in the evenings. Would also like to make sure we get a visit in to the San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park, some time at the beach, etc... We would be flying from the DC area. Here is the key -- my husband does NOT like to travel, but he loves San Diego and has always wanted to stay at Coronado, so simplicity is important (though I realize that may sound a touch insane given the tentative itinerary I just laid out!)

Any tips or advice will be very much appreciated!
