Planning a fun, relaxing, and romantic date can be challenging. We did the hard work for you and outlined three exciting itineraries that all work for morning, mid-day, and after dark.



Take a quick cruise over to Coronado Island: Flagship Cruises & Events offers ferry rides for $5 one-way throughout the day.


You can easily wander around the island on foot, but it’s even more fun to rent bicycles and zip along the Silver Strand bike path.


After enjoying spectacular views of downtown and the Coronado Bay Bridge, head to Orange Avenue and grab a bite to eat at a restaurant that catches your eye.


Walk through the iconic Hotel Del Coronado and along the beach…bonus points if you arrive here during sunset!

Little Italy

#1. Look

Wander through the Museum of Contemporary Art near Santa Fe Station.

#2. Chat

Chat about your favorite pieces over a drink: Stone Brewing Tap Room and Craft & Commerce are two great options near the museum.

#3. Eat

Share a meal at one of the neighborhood’s many intimate restaurants before…

#4. Listen

…seeing a live show at Music Box. (Okay, that last step requires a little planning! Check out the Music Box website for upcoming shows and tickets.)

Pacific Beach

#1. Brunch

What’s more relaxing than an epic ocean view? Start with brunch at JRDN at the Tower23 hotel. A mimosa paired with people-watching on the boardwalk is a recipe for great conversation.

#2. Stroll

Take a walk along Crystal Pier and along the Ocean Front Walk (the official, fancy name for the boardwalk).

#3. Drink

…grabbing a drink at Waterbar.

#4. Pop

Pop into some of PB’s boutique shops and see where the day takes you!
