I love weekend trips. Maybe because I know I can actually go on those...I hardley ever go on vacation, I hope to change that as I get older and more successful. Hopefully next year I will actually get to blog about my awesome trip to Monte Carlo ...meerly a dream right now but hopefully soon it will be a reality.

So I have had many weekend getaways so it was tough to just pick one. The winner is... San Diego. It was my most recent weekend getaway to SD that I am amazed to find that I don't think I ever blogged about it when I came back. Hmmmm that is really weird. Onto my review!!

Where: San Diego, Gas Lamp Quarter

Hard Rock Hotel: This is seriously one of my favorite hotels of all time. When we checked in we got the upgrade to a beautiful suite. The room was huge and we had a living area along with a huge bedroom area with a comfortable king bed. The best part though was the huge shower with two shower heads.
This was our bed but the bedding was red.

This is pretty close to what our room looked like. That red chair was super comfortable.
Food: We ate at the Ocean Room. I got the salmon wrapped in a banana leaf but it wasn't as good as I remember. Kevin got the steak I believe. I think it was yummy. The Ocean Room has really good sushi and thats what I would recommend if you do eat there.

Activities: We hung out in our room a lot. The first night we had one of our friends come over and hang with us. That was a ton of fun: drinking and playing games.

The next day we walked around the Horton Shopping Plaza. This is an outdoor mall with a wide variety of shops. It is very well designed and I could spend a full day in here.

Like I said...you could spend hours in there
The pool at the Hardrock is pretty cool and we spent a little bit of time up there. It has a pool side bar, nice cabanas, and a decent sized pool. I was sad we couldnt stay for Sunday because the Hardrock is suppose to have one of the best pool parties. Maybe next time we go.

Of course we did a lot of walking around the gaslamp because that is what you have to do when you are in San Diego. It is one of the best downtown experience because of all the bars, nightlife, and people watching you can get done. Its also pretty safe, I don't fear getting mugged or raped when I am in SD.

Next Trip: A girl's trip to Vegas in September and/or a SD trip where we go to the Wild Animal Park and experience the night life.

I wish I had some great recommendations on where to get the best drinks or dance the night away. But I don't yet... However, I did hear good things about the club inside the Hardrock. I am hoping to



  1. Ahh.. I love SD!! I would live there if I could :) But I can't believe I missed Horton Shopping Plaza! That places looks amazing!!

    PS... Vegas and the racetrack?!?! How fun! You have one lucky husband :)

  2. I submitted my favorite recent getaway, although my alltime favorite trip was Hawaii last year!

    And I am just DYING to go to Vegas!!! Can't wait to get another trip report from you! The last one was hilarious!

  3. What an amazing looking room!! I've never been to SD but been to Vegas tons of times.

  4. How fun! I would love to go to SD sometime. That hotel looks super chic! I just posted about my weekend trip to Asheville, NC and the Biltmore Estate, so I went ahead and linked those posts. Thanks for hosting!
