The Dana Resort, Mission Bay, San Diego

The Dana Hotel and Marina at Mission Bay

 Some estimate California to being the number one tourism destination in the country and records show that over 250 million tourists visit California each year.San Diego hosted at least 35 million visitors last year on its own.  Count me in as one of the 35 million as we set out to do a true staycation and visit one of the nicest resorts in San Diego.   We didn’t have to travel far as it was only about 35 miles from home.This was to be a relaxing vacation, one where we had nowhere in particular to go and nothing special to do.The idea was to just enjoy the resort, relax by the pool, fish, eat, sleep in, and maybe drink a little.


The Resort
The Dana Hotel in Mission Bay is situated around a small marina that offers its guests rentals of every type of water craft.   Also, you can set up your fishing pole anywhere along the marina or the larger part of the bay just beyond the resort.


The marina

On the Mission Bay side of the hotel there is a walkway that takes you along the water’s edge with sweeping views of the bridges, boats, inlets, and Fiesta Island.  You can sit there for hours watching the boats go by.   It is pure relaxation.
