October in San Diego is a great time to get out and explore your own backyard. With Santa Ana winds clearing the air San Diego's weather is ideal. Make sure to get outside and enjoy some of San Diego's best outdoor activities before our chilling winter (65 degrees) arrives and you have to put on a sweater. Here are a few great options to help you explore San Diego, whether on a date with a special someone or an enjoyable family day out:
1) San Diego Gondola Company-
Many San Diegans don't know that we have Venetian Gondolas in our own backyard. The San Diego Gondola Company offers gondola rides from the Coronado Loews Resort. Packages start at $85 for a one hour afternoon cruise through the Coronado Cays or $99 for a sunset cruise, these cruises include appetizers or chocolate covered strawberries and a beautiful Italian serenade. Feel free to bring your own wine or champagne for a sunset toast. For more information be sure to visit www.gondolacompany.com.
2) Surf Lessons-
Anywhere along the coast you can be sure to find a surf school that fits your needs, from Mission Beach to Oceanside surf schools are in abundance with instructors eager to teach you how to ride the curl. So many San Diegans make this a life goal but find a hard time making it a priority. Now that the tourists are gone it is a perfect time to accomplish something new, go on learn to surf (while the water is still warm). Just google San Diego surf lessons and you can pick a company that fits your learning style best, from private lessons to group lessons, San Diego surf lessons offer everything under the sun.
3) Kayak and Bike Tours-
San Diego Bike and Kayak Tours offers great outdoor adventure packages here in your own backyard.
