1.  Start your day off right with breakfast or brunch in Mission Bay. Put The Mission’s reputation of “best beach breakfast” to the test, or check out The Boardwalk Mission Bay (formerly The Boardwalk Bistro) where breakfast is served all day.

Sail Bay Boardwalk

2.  There are close to 14 miles of boardwalk along Mission Bay, giving you and your family ample room to play. Whether walking, jogging, biking, or skating, Mission Bay’s stunning views will not disappoint. Bring your own gear or rent equipment for a few hours.

SUP Lesson at OEX Mission Bay

3.  This weekend, get off the sand and onto the water to explore the bay’s thousands of acres of waterways. One of the most popular watersport activities in Mission Bay is SUP, or stand up paddleboard. Mission Bay’s flat waters make it the ideal spot to learn how to stand up paddle board. Rentals and lessons available at OEX Mission Bay.

The Bahia Belle

4.  Take in the bay from another vantage point: from the deck of the Bahia Belle. The Bahia Belle— a “Turn of the Century” Mississippi-style sternwheeler – offers Friday and Saturday evening cruises in April and May. Cruises depart from the Catamaran Resort Hotel & Spa dock.  Non-hotel guests may purchase tickets for $10.00 for adults and $3.00 for children 12 years old and under.

Wells Fargo Outrigger Challenge & Luau

5.  The Wells Fargo Outrigger Challenge & Luau returns to Crown Point Shores this Saturday, April 30th for the tenth consecutive year.  Teams of all skill-levels will compete in equipment provided by the Hanohano Outrigger Canoe Club. After the race, participants will be treated to the tastes and sounds of the Hawaiian Islands.

About Courtney

I love fashion, Gerbera daisies, and yoga. I recently moved back to San Diego after 10 years of living in LA. I couldn't be more excited to rediscover the best activities, views, food, and more in this amazing city. My husband of two years is my partner in crime (thankfully he loves exploring SD as much as I do).

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

My perfect day would start with a cup of tea (no matter the temperature outside). A breakfast burrito from Pipe's would definitely be in order. Then I'd go for a leisurely bike ride or walk at the beach with my husband. We’d eat sushi for dinner, watch a movie at home, and drink a glass of red wine.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

It’s impossible to pick one thing! I love biking, walking, shopping, dining outside.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Linguine and red wine. Done!

Latest music purchases for my iPod player are…

Josh Tuner, Keith Urban, the Best of Elton John
