Dana Point Marina Inn Giveaway!

see more by

I couldn’t be more excited about today’s giveaway from one of my new fabulous sponsors, the Dana Point Marina Inn because I KNOW how many moms and dads out there could use a little GETAWAY!

I am all about the STAYCATION these days. I mean, seriously, Orange County is a place where people travel from all over to vacation.  Why spend money to fly or drive someplace far when there are waterfront resorts at our fingertips?!

The Dana Point Marina Inn is nestled between the coastal bluffs of the Dana Point Harbor. Coined the “only” hotel on the harbor, you are only a flip flop step away from a  stroll along the water.   Located close to restaurants and boutiques, there are entertainment options for everyone… relax with a margarita at a nearby restaurant, hit the sand for a beach day or plan a fun deep sea fishing or whale watching excursion.

The Dana Point Marina Inn prides itself on customer service and strives to be your home away from home.

    Well, honestly I would love to have a nice little getaway with my husband. We never got a honeymoon, and with two kids at home we don’t get much alone time. It’s been a stressful year already, so I could use the unwinding.

    Being the parents of four kiddos family vacations are a little out of our budget right now. So the idea of a Staycation is great! You have the right idea. My hubby and youngest son take fishing boats out of Dana Point. It would be cool to be able to stay there and for them to go fishing!
