February 19, 2015

Having marital problems? Are you on the lookout for a fun way to add more romance and spice to your relationship? I’m no love expert, by any means, but I can assure you that a trip to San Diego can help bring back the old blissful feelings you’ve had for your other half during your courting stages. Trust me, a trip to the city of San Diego may change your life in a lot of positive ways, including making you a better and more romantic lover.

 

Planning a trip to San Diego? Here are a few ways this Californian city can make you a more romantic lover.

 

Pleasurable San Diego experiences your partner will love

 1. A romantic movie date in a drive-in theater

When was the last time you took you loved one on a movie date? In San Diego, you will have tons of opportunities to experience a romantic movie date with your partner.  From the ultra large screens of Reading Cinemas Grossmont Center to Reading Cinemas Gaslamp and its lovely velvet curtains, there are plenty of places where you can watch a movie with your sweetheart in this Californian apple.

But if you really want to make your movie date special, go to Pacific Beach, South Bay or East Country, and look for an old piece of America that time nearly left behind, the drive-in movie theater. I know drive-movie theaters are old-fashioned, but they have a rather romantic vibe that you may not experience in modern amphitheaters.
