Spark The Romance With These 10 Fabolous Restaurants In San Diego


Great dating ideas and romantic locations in San Diego.

San Diego offers so many options for romantic dates! Whether you need a VIP helicopter or hot air balloon ride, San Diego is here to serve you.  From wine tasting to horseback riding along with hiking, biking, skydiving, fishing or a simple sunset stroll and picnic on the beach, San Diego is the city to beat.

It's not exactly Italy, but you could be escorted around the Coronado Cays in a gondola, thanks to The Gondola Company. Located in the La Jolla Shores area, La Jolla Kayak offers snorkel, bike and kayak tours. Hop in a kayak and explore marine life such as Sea Lions, Leopard Sharks, and Garibaldi around the famous Seven Caves and the La Jolla Underwater Park. Do a little whale watching, brunch and kayak, enjoy sunset out on the water or participate in their other specialty tours. Stand-up paddle boarding and surfing is also an option. For an out-of-water experience, bike up Mt. Soledad or bike down to Windansea beach on their coastal bike tour.

Along the bluffs overlooking the sea there are eight miles of trails through the unique landscape and due to conservation efforts the state park is one of the wildest, most undeveloped spots in the state and named Torrey Pines State Beach and Park. The twisted Torrey pine tree is found in only two places on earth: in this park and on an island almost 200 miles to the north.

Ranked the #1 paragliding school in America since 2000, Torrey Pines Gliderport is a city-owned private-use glider airport. You can't really beat the view from the sky, but it's pretty spectacular from the ground, too. You can take lessons, fly tandem or just enjoy the view from a cliff above the famous Black's Beach. Stroll along the walking paths at Sunset Cliffs Park, south of Ocean Beach for stunning views and sunset seascapes. Against the backdrop of the bay, downtown and Coronado, couples can embark on a three-hour sunset dinner cruise with music and dancing or sample light bites, sip cocktails and unwind to soft music on the two-hour "Sights and Sips" sunset cruise.

Cuddle together in a horse-drawn carriage ride on the waterfront or through Balboa Park. Fairy tales can come true!
