Experience Gifts City Focus San Diego
San Diego Experience Gifts
San Diego has a climate other cities can only dream of. You’re as likely to have sunshine at Christmas in San Diego as you are in any other month – no wonder its residents love living there so much!
Thanks to its diverse geography you can experience desert, mountain and coastal weather all in a day. This helps encourage outdoor activities, even when the temptation might be to rest at a traditional homey Christmas get-together.
So when it comes to choosing a gift for someone who lives in the SoCal region, you best start with the outdoor activities.
Sailing and surfing lessons have to be top of the list. Even in winter the waters are warm enough, so if you’ve someone on your gift list who has never dipped a toe in the ocean, now could be the time…
For friends and family who love nature but would rather watch it than surf it, consider a whale watching or dolphin watching trip. Waters of the coast are a thoroughfare for migratory grey whales and loved by dolphins, so they’ll need to take a camera.
Inland, a bike tour could help a family member get some miles and generate some smiles. And if it’s all too much like hard work, there are plenty of other tours that are more restful and make equally good gift experiences.
Take a romantic moment on a gondola around the Coronado Cays, or take out a Segway and roll your way around instead.
And if Christmas romance is what you have in mind, then lifting off in a balloon to watch the sunset over Southern California will reveal a view shared best with the one you love.
