Whether you are a local Southern California who wants to drive up for the weekend or a non-native looking for a great place to visit (with or without the kids) – San Diego is a great choice! The countless experiences that exist in the San Diego is just the icing on the cake to the beautiful scenery and gorgeous year ’round weather.

Imagine… 70 miles of beaches! That figure suggests what many of us natives know to be true – plenty of beach for every mood: romantic, quaint, family-oriented, party, quiet meditation, and so much more! The island area of Coronado houses the famous, red-roofed, Coronado Hotel, sparkling (thanks to the mica mineral) beaches, and plenty of family-oriented and romantic activities such as kayaking, biking, gondola rides, shopping, and amazing food options.

Hotel del Coronado is a landmark that exudes grandeur and luxury and has been complimenting the beautiful beaches since 1888. Whether your visit is geared more toward the Spa Mimosa Mondays or the complimentary s’mores in the evening, the skating rink on the beach during the holidays, or… my personal favorite: the amazingly delicious Sunday brunch, there is no denying the warm and inviting aura provided by such an amazing landmark hotel. With that being said, don’t underestimate Hotel del Coronado‘s competition! Whether it is the casual splendor of Paradise Point or the San Diego Marriott Mission Valley that is so conveniently located just a little more than a mile from Qualcomm stadium.
I think I had the best chipotle chicken sandwich I have ever tasted delivered to my room at Paradise Point followed by walking out my rear French Doors to feed the birds before putting my feet in the beach water right outside my bungaloo in the bay that almost seemed like my own private beach. Did I mention the fire pits and lawn chairs on my back patio (on the beach). While Paradise point isn’t as fancy as the Hotel del Coronado, it is definitely a force to be reckoned with and I, personally, can’t wait until my next visit!

Check back tomorrow for my section on San Diego Mountains; followed by a post dedicated to downtown San Diego.

FAA Proposes Strict Slot Limitations for New York Area Airports

New York Area Airports

The FAA submitted a proposal that would limit non-scheduled operations as follows:

  • Newark International Airport (EWR): one slot per hour
  • John F. Kennedy (JFK) to two per hour
  • La Guardia Airport (LGA) would permanently adopt the current three per hour limitations

Parties opposing the proposed rule-making cite concern that the reduction in slots for unscheduled operations at EWR and JFK will have a significant impact on a broad range of operations. Further arguments cited the lack of industry data that would suggest congestion at these airports is in any way connected to non-scheduled operations.

Most business flights opt for Teterboro due to both economic efficiency and convenience; however, it is occasionally best to choose JFK, LGA, or EWR for logistical planning. Perhaps most concerning is the infrequent necessity of an emergency landing; EWR and JFK would no longer be alternatives when safety considerations would ordinarily warrant their use.

Ultimately, proponents of the rule-making are refuting the new rules based on the age old adage that the FAA is attempting to “solve a problem that doesn’t exist!”
