Hoppy Easter from Sunny San Diego

| Events, From Ocean Park Inn, Greater San Diego

Easter is right around the corner, and we can’t wait to celebrate. This is a time to spend with family and friends, and we have a few ideas to help make your 2015 Easter extra lovely with a stay at Pacific Beach’s Ocean Park Inn.

San Diego Easter 2015Start your April 5th with a car ride from Ocean Park Inn to the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado. If you haven’t visited Coronado Island, it is a must see in San Diego! One of the most stunning parts of the island is the Hotel del Coronado. This 125-year-old hotel is recognized as a National Historic Landmark, and will make for a perfect backdrop to family photos this Easter.

You won’t go hungry on Coronado with the Del’s Easter Champagne Brunch Buffet. This is an ideal event for the whole family, as it features a special children’s buffet for the little tykes in the group! After getting your fill of delicious food, you won’t want to miss the quintessential Easter event: the good old-fashioned egg hunt! There are different times for different ages, so don’t worry, it will be a fair race. There are 3 egg hunts from 10:00 am to 10:40 am, then three more from noon to 12:40 p.m. We can’t wait for the Craft ‘Egg’stravaganza, located right by the buffet. This will be a fun project for kids and adults, and is the perfect way to spend quality time with the whole family.

Don’t want to venture far from your luxurious room at the Ocean Park Inn in Pacific Beach? Spend your Easter just a short walk down the boardwalk at Belmont Park, which will be hosting the Easter Bash. There will be 10,000 fun-filled eggs all throughout the park and sand, 25 of which are special Golden Eggs. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to find them! The hunt will be from 9 a.m. to noon. Register the kids beforehand here. Then after the hunt, enjoy lunch with the family at WaveHouse or Draft!

San Diego Warmly Welcomes Home Winter Solstice

| Entertainment, From Ocean Park Inn

In some parts of the country, the Winter Solstice, which marks the shortest day of the year, also marks the beginning of a long and cold winter. However, in San Diego, the Winter Solstice is nothing but another sunny Southern Californian day! With school and work breaking for the holidays, come celebrate the Winter Soltice away from your town’s freezing weather at the Pacific Beach’s premier beachfront hotel, the Ocean Park Inn. Snowmans Family At Sea Beach In Santa Hat. New Years And Christm

From experience, we can tell you there is nothing better than a vacation spent with your toes in the sand and a drink in your hand. The Ocean Park Inn is located in the heart of San Diego’s Pacific Beach, where you can enjoy local eats and nightlife, as well as a sunset stroll down the boardwalk.

Here are some of our favorite things to do in San Diego during the winter:

1. Arrival of Surfin’ Santa:
Santa will ditch his red suit, dress up in his surfing attire and arrive at Seaport Village to celebrate the holiday season in true Southern California style. Families near and far venture to Seaport Village to enjoy a unique visit with the board shorts-clad Santa, and to explore more than 50 local shops all decked out for the holidays.

2. Ice Skating at Horton Plaza:
Gather up family and friends alike and head downtown to San Diego’s premier shopping district, where you can enjoy hot chocolate and get the feel of the holiday season. The ice skating rink will be set up alongside Horton Plaza’s beautiful Christmas tree, making it a great place to spend time with your loved ones.

3. Get out and explore the beauty of San Diego:
You can explore the wonders of San Diego by going on hikes throughout the city or renting bicycles to ride down the seaside boardwalk. If you can tear yourself away from your relaxing oceanfront room at the Ocean Park Inn, you may also want to consider renting paddleboards or kayaking in nearby Mission Bay. Enjoy the many wonders of San Diego as you unleash your adventurous side this winter!

Whether you are escaping the freezing temps or just visiting family in San Diego, Ocean Park Inn is the place to stay. You can watch the sunset from your balcony or visit the many different restaurants, bars and shops surrounding the hotel. Although it is the beginning of winter you will feel like summer has just arrived! San Diego is your summer getaway from winter, so book yourself some sunshine today!
