The Destination
Though it's just minutes from downtown San Diego, Mission Bay is really a city of its own, home of the largest man-made aquatic park in the country. With nearly 30 miles of coastal waterways and inlets, clean beaches, a three-mile boardwalk, and, of course, SeaWorld San Diego, this 4,600-acre park is the heart and soul of Mission Bay. But landlubbers will find plenty to gush over here, too. From restaurants and bars to shops and spas, this seaside enclave thrives throughout the day and night. And if you really want to kick things into gear, you're less than 15 minutes from downtown, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Balboa Park.

The Digs
Set right on the water, The Dana on Mission Bay has been the area's go-to hotel since the 1960s. And after a 2006 overhaul, it's better than ever. Situated on ten acres of tropical gardens, The Dana boasts two swimming pools and two hot tubs, and even offers pedal boat and kayak rentals on-site. For brunch and dinner, the resort's Firefly Restaurant & Bar dishes up California cuisine that highlights local and seasonal ingredients, San Diego's ever-growing microbrew scene, and more than 40 wines by the glass. Rooms are basic, yet tastefully appointed with two queen beds, a flat-screen TV, and a private bathroom, with some rooms featuring a private balcony, a mini-fridge, a microwave, a wet bar, and a coffeemaker.
