Evans Mission Bay Magazine Issue 2 - Page 6

letter Welcome to Mission Beach! Centered on the San Diego coast, Mission Beach and Mission Bay provide a perfect home base for exploring this vibrant city. The area is filled with impressive restaurants, a thriving craft beer scene, cul- tural venues, attractions like SeaWorld San Diego, the San Diego Zoo and, of course, miles of shoreline for water sports or lounging on the sand. There’s something for everyone in this world-class destination that lures travelers with its sunny skies and nearly year- round warm weather. Whether you’ve chosen to stay at Bahia Resort Hotel or Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, all of us at Evans Hotels—a local, family-run company—hope you enjoy your time in San Diego. Both of our bayfront properties offer a retreat from busy lives. At the Polynesian-inspired Catamaran, children delight in meeting our talking parrots. Adults make time to relax at the Spa and enjoy at least one dinner on the beach-view patio of Oceana Coastal Kitchen. A cocktail in the tropical outdoor setting of Moray’s bar is a perfect way to end your day. At the Bahia, get out on the water on a paddleboard or sailboat rental. Play tennis then indulge in a hearty meal at Café Bahia or enjoy the Mediterranean atmosphere at Tangier Bar with its live music. 6 The Catamaran and Bahia beaches may keep you too busy to leave Mission Bay, but we encourage you to explore all our region has to offer. As you flip through the pages of Mission: Beach! magazine, we hope you are inspired to venture out to the award-winning local breweries, catch a wave at the beach and take in a baseball game at Petco Park or live music in the Gaslamp Quarter. Savor the fresh seafood and other tantalizing dishes by some of Southern California’s best chefs. From La Jolla to Del Mar, downtown San Diego and beyond, the area offers more than enough experiences to create a week of lifelong memories. Evans Hotels has called San Diego home since 1953 and—though we might be a little biased—we think it truly is America’s Finest City. So, from our family to yours, please enjoy your stay and come back to see us soon. Sincerely, Grace Evans Cherashore Executive Chairwoman Evans Hotels
