SCRIPPS SUNSET: If you've been to La Jolla, you've likely passed a breezy afternoon at Ellen Browning Scripps Park. Few parks in this world -- and we're talking about the traditional grassy, spread-out-a-blanket park -- have quite the view this one does. And that view? The Pacific. Right there. Steps away. Truly hard to beat. With that in mind, La Valencia, the historic hotel that's just a toodle away from Scripps Park, is offering a Picnic in the Park package.
THE DEAL: There is a frou-frou, made-for-two picnic involved, as the name suggests, but there's also a room at the Pink Lady. There will also be a breakfast a deux as well. That will be served in the hotel, not the park, but you'll want to eat early, we imagine, to get some more park-time in. $377 is the starter price -- there'll be additionals, like tax -- so ring the hotel for details.
