Dreaming of a weekend getaway to unwind from the madness of the holidays? The Martin Luther King holiday weekend is just around the corner, and San Diego makes a great destination for a quick weekend trip! For accommodations, look no further than Ocean Park Inn, which is located just across the boardwalk from the Pacific Ocean, and close to all of the action in San Diego.

On Saturday, January 17th, start off the weekend watching San Diego State University’s Aztecs vs. UNLV’s Runnin’ Rebels. Tip off is at 3:00pm at the Viejas Arena, and you can still get your tickets here. If you’d rather take in the game on TV, check out nearby Pacific Beach hotspots like The Local Pacific Beach, where you can enjoy brunch with $10 bottles of Champagne!

On Sunday, January 18th make sure to check out the 35th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade in downtown at the San Diego Bay Waterfront! The festivities start at 2 p.m. on Harbor Drive and are a must attend for all ages. The parade is a San Diego tradition and will include everything from detailed floats to peace and youth group gatherings. Enjoy the beauty of the waterfront with the family or friends. It is the perfect way to honor the holiday, and explore “Americas Finest City.” If you have extra time, stop by Seaport Village after the parade to enjoy local cuisine, and tour the 50+ shops it has to offer!

And the best part of Sunday during a holiday weekend? No work on Monday! Continue your weekend fun by walking the Pacific Beach boardwalk directly in front of Ocean Park Inn and explore fun shops, restaurants and beautiful scenery. San Diego has everything you could want in a long weekend getaway: great eats, exciting events, and gorgeous sandy beaches. Visit to book your stay in Sunny San Diego.
