Pop the Question in San Diego’s Romantic Outdoors

With the daylight savings time change, spring has arrived in San Diego, along with spring fever! One of the reasons we pay a premium to live in this beautiful climate and city is the fabulous outdoor venues, views, and adventures that await us at every turn.

Spring and summer is the perfect time of year for lovers to take advantage of San Diego’s romantic outdoors to finally ask that all important question, “Will you marry me?” We’ve gathered just a few ideas to spark your imagination.

Get your friends involved setting up a preplanned picnic scene. At the end of an out-and-about day with your loved one, you “stumble” upon your surprise picnic. It could be anywhere that has meaning to you...a park, a hotel rooftop, the beach, or somewhere else unexpected. Your friends can also be hiding nearby to snap pictures or video of the happy moments.
