120. Festival of Whales Dana Point

Did you know grey whales migration from Alaska to Mexico is over 5,000 miles?
Being proud that 40-50 whales pass them every day, the City of Dana Point wants to celebrate with the public by hosting the Annual Festival of Whales. In a nutshell, this event is family-friendly and nice for a casual day date idea.

It will be a "whale" of a time with tons of activities (paid and free) organized for the next two weekends (March 6, 7, 13, and 14), including a parade, street faire and more. Here's one interesting romantic activity: take a 30-minute sailing ride with your partner (up to 3 people per boat) and learn how to steer and sail for a mere $15 per sail boat. Free shuttles from the nearby parking lots are available all day during the events 10 AM - 4 PM. Check online for a complete schedule of events and shuttle map.

Unfortunately, there is a 60% chance of rain tomorrow and Sunday, but the weather is expected to be perfectly sunny next weekend (click HERE for the 10-day weather forecast of Dana Point). Hopefully the parade won't be rained out tomorrow. I'd mark your calendars for doing this cheap date idea next weekend due to the weather, but maybe the weather bunny will change it's mind again. If you would rather go on a whale watching excursion to see the whales up close and personal, check out the half-price tickets on Cheap Date Idea #66 (click HERE). Have fun!

Approximate cost of creative date idea = FREE Admission.
Actual value of the cheap date idea = Priceless.
