San Diego – A Nautical Paradise!


Erica here. I recently traveled to San Diego for the Strategic Account Management Association (SAMA) Conference. The conference was absolutely amazing, I can’t wait to implement some of my learnings both into my work and personal life…and let’s be honest, the location didn’t hurt either! I was there for five days and didn’t have a ton of time to explore, but the time I did have was fantastic and I can definitely say that San Diego is a beautiful city! Here is a bit about my journey.

I stayed at the Sheraton Marina & Hotel which was a nautical paradise and the following picture was the view from my balcony! I mean- come on?! All the decor was navy, red, white, boats, water…. Anchored to the East’s heaven. Hotel View

My first day I explored Seaport Harbour and Gaslamp Quarter.  I had dinner on the patio overtop of the water at The Fish Market watching the sailboats fly by.  I had oysters, a Sonoma Chardonnay, crab cakes (sorry Maryland, but San Diego might do crab cakes better) and a fresh ahi tuna sushi roll — all over the top!Seaport HarbourStrollsWarOysters, Sonoma Chardonnay & Crusty BreakCrab Cakes @ The Fish MarketSushi @ The Fish Market

The next couple of days were busy with the conference so I soaked in the hotel amenities, went for a daily run by the marina and took in the Aerospace Museum at the conference networking dinner. Sunshine on a cloudy day San Diego Aerospace Museum Poolside Marina Runs Whale Fountain for Ben

The whole time I was in San Diego people kept telling me I had to see La Jolla, which I would describe as the Beverly Hills of San Diego, so near the end of the week I took a cab out there to check out the sites. It was worth it and lucky for me I found a great wine shop to bring home a few Cali favs. Panoramic La JollaTuna Taco in WontonsSandy Seals La Jolla

All in al I would definitely go back to San Diego! Sunset @ the MarinaAnchors aweigh!
