Paradise Point in San Diego is a new venue for us, a pleasant resort on a small island in the middle of Mission Bay, isolated but minutes away from the city, Balboa Park and its many attractions (zoo, plazas and museums), an increasingly active downtown with a growing restaurant culture, Mission Beach with its standing wave and amusement park, Pacific Beach with numerous tattoo options, and La Jolla, for strolling and shopping and bar-hopping.  Paradise Point has a sort of faux-Hawaiian style, but pulls it off, with lodging in detatched casitas, three restaurants and bars, several swimming pools, and a dock for water sports-- and ample meeting facilities.
