According to the National Recreation and Park Association, 55 percent of Americans choose picnics and al fresco dining as their favorite summertime outdoor activity, followed by 40 percent who enjoy going to the beach. I think I am in both categories – come spring and summer, I love heading to the beach for a weekend bike ride and then a picnic brunch. Not surprising then that Santa Monica’s ocean-facing Shore Hotel has a new Spring Picnic At The Shore package so you can do both!
Starting National Picnic Day on April 23 and running until the end of May, if you book the Spring Picnic At The Shore package you can hop on board Shore Hotel beach cruiserswith picnic baskets including gourmet treats, a beach blanket and towels, reef-safe sunscreen from Raw Elements, sustainably sourced and packaged JUST Water bottles, and more.
Packaged sustainably in keeping with the hotel’s eco-conscious efforts, you can choose between a charcuterie and cheese board or baguette sandwiches as the main course for your picnic. It also includes freshly baked cookies, kettle-cooked potato chips and bottled water, along with all of the essentials needed for a relaxing day at the beach. That’s a great deal I think!
The Spring Picnic at The Shore package includes overnight accommodations in a King Ocean View room for two guests, use of two Shore Hotel bicycles (4 hour time limit), picnic basket of gourmet goodies prepared by the hotel offering entrée, chips and cookies for two as well as sustainable cutlery and JUST Water, picnic blanket and two Shore Hotel beach towels, Shore Hotel branded beach bag (to take home) and Raw Elements reef-safe sunscreen.
Head on over to Shore Hotel located on 1515 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90401 anytime between April 23 through May 31, 2019 (subject to availability) and use this link to book your springtime picnic by the water: Spring Picnic at The Shore – you might just find me hanging around there this Sunday enjoying the waves and some bites.
