Winter (noun) The coldest season of the year, in the northern hemisphere from December to February and in the southern hemisphere from June to August.
Most San Diego locals, will in fact tell you Winter is the best time of year. The beaches, restaurants and amusement parks are uncrowded, the weather is beautiful, but shhhh don’t tell anyone I told you. My husband likes to say the true SoCal summer is October through March, because of the amazing weather we generally have that time of year.
Most of the United States is being hit hard with harsh winter storms right now. Yet another reason to visit sunny Southern California. Last week it was in the 80’s along the coast in San Diego and Los Angeles, while that is a little high for February it is still not that unheard of. My family spent the entire day at the beach on Sunday, yes at the beach in February, this is not a joke. The picture below is the best of both worlds, enjoy a dip in the pool or hot tub while looking at the beach. How many rooftop pools are there in Oceanside, just this one! The view is incredible and is the same from the fitness room located on the same floor.
Visiting Oceanside, California is the perfect destination, especially the SpringHill Suites hotel which is within walking distance to the beach. When I mention walking distance is really is only a minute walk. Above is the view from our room, and there is no additional cost for incredible sunset. SpringHill Suites is nice for a romantic getaway, we enjoyed a glass of wine on our patio during the sunset, there is nothing more romantic than a sunset with the one you love.
SpringHill Suites also has fire features throughout the property, my favorite is pictured below. We enjoyed the comfortable couches while sitting next to a warm fire, and watching the early evening clouds go by.
The rooms at SpringHill Suites are contemporary-style and let you sleep immersed in modern design. Pictures of the Pacific Ocean keep the surf theme throughout the hotel. The pictures brighten up the living room area, which also hosts a sofa out bed, perfect for children. The bathroom has a sleek modern design and all the products are eco-friendly. If you are traveling with children the mini-refrigerator and microwave will help for the snacks that kids love. Also included in the room is an array of coffee and teas. Wi-Fi is a must when traveling? My son asks everywhere we go if there is wi-fi and it is complimentary. Another item in the room that I loved was the iPod dock, just place your iPhone on the dock and listen to your favorite music.
Including in your stay at SpringHill Suites is complimentary hot buffet breakfast, eggs, waffles, sausage which were my favorites. Attached to the hotel is one of my favorite restaurants Hello Betty, we visit a couple of times a month.
I held my birthday there last summer on the roof top deck, which offers drinks, chips and salsa and delicious tacos. The roof top deck is a perfect place to stop on your way home from work for a drink, and to watch the sunset.
