San Diego is said to have, arguably, the best weather in the country, making it a great option for an accessible and perhaps more travel-affordable destination wedding. It’s also my hometown so I’m slightly partial to properties there. The city really is the epitome of relaxation and boasts numerous luxury resorts that rival any far away destination spot. The north county located La Costa Resort and Spa is certainly one of them.
The La Costa Resort has a striking Spanish style design, befitting of its Southern California roots. Most famous for its spa destination, the vast property is an excellent option for destination weddings of any size, especially those with kids (the resort is complete with a kids camp, pool area and arcade). This unique spot is one you never have to leave and you and your guests will feel totally fulfilled. Golf for the guys, tennis for ladies, spa and shopping, pool time and nature walks, and of course fantastic restaurants and even fireside dinning with your own private staff, should you wish.
If you’re looking to unpack and unwind without ever leaving the wedding property, then La Costa Resort could be just for you. And for those of you who like to venture out every once and a while, San Diego summers have the Del Mar Fair, the Del Mar Racetrack, the beach, the harbor, and lots more to entertain you with – just outside the property’s gates.
When to Go: San Diego has pretty spectacular weather year round but we suggest late summer when the race track comes to down. Just one more group activity to enjoy with your guests!
Travel Tip: Rent a car! While the resort is its own self-contained city, San Diego has so many sites to see within 30 minutes of the property that you’ll be thankful you have the freedom to venture out.
