One of the best things about proposing is the fun you will have creating a creative place to ask the question. If you live in California or are considering a visit, here are 7 fun places you could consider for your marriage proposal:
1. Noria – Santa Monica Pier
The Santa Monica Pier is a great place to ask the question. You can spend the whole day sunbathing on the beach, then when the sun begins to set, take a ride on the Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica Pier, where you can propose a spectacular sunset, then head to Ocean Ave. Seafood for dinner and champagne.
2. Sunset Gondola Rides – Huntington Beach
Huntington Beach is another beautiful place to propose. And there’s no better place to do it than on a sunset gondola cruise on the Huntington Harbor and Sunset Beach canals. They encourage you to bring your drink of choice, where your gondolier will be happy to uncork it and provide cups. Your gondolier can sing for the two of you too. Gondola cruises are available 7 days a week from 10 am to 11 pm for two to six people. Call them at 562-592-3295 to reserve a gondola.
3. Top of Splash Mountain – Disneyland
What better way to ask your loved one to take the plunge with you than on the 5-story Splash Mountain dive ride at Disneyland, where you can ask the question just before the 52-foot drop? Make sure you buy the photo before you leave, so you will always have an image of the moment you proposed.
4. Catalina Island
Celebrate your romance on the “island of romance,” Catalina Island, located 26 miles off the coast of Los Angeles. You can propose at any number of scenic spots, or you can go to fun spots like a glass bottom boat, your own private boat, on an underwater tour, while snorkeling at “Lover’s Cove” or, if you don’t. Please note the expensive tab, on your own private jeep tour of the island, where you can stop at any number of places and propose.
5. Hot air balloon: Temecula, Del Mar and Napa
Tell her that your love is reaching new heights by proposing to her during a hot air balloon flight over some of the most beautiful scenery in California. Many of the popular locations include flights over Temecula, Del Mar, or Napa Valley. Many locations offer sunset and sunrise flights, with a champagne brunch or toast upon landing. Hot Air Flyer offers onboard champagne service during their sunset flights over Temecula and Del Mar. Call them at 714-369-5757 for more information.
6. Helicopter tour over Los Angeles
See the sights of Los Angeles from a helicopter that will take you on a tour of all of Los Angeles’ landmarks: downtown Los Angeles skyscrapers, Dodger Stadium, Staples Center, and the Sunset Strip. Let her know that she is the real star by proposing to her as she flies over the Hollywood sign. You can also have the helicopter land at the Santa Monica airport for dinner at the fabulous Typhoon restaurant.
7. Dodger Stadium – Scoreboard Message
If you’re both a Dodger fan, you might consider asking for her hand in marriage with a message on the scoreboard on the Dodger Stadium ribbon board behind 1st and 3rd base during a Dodgers home game for a cost of $ 50.00. A Dodger Dog, beer and a proposal, what could be more perfect?
These are just a sampling of some of the creative ways and places to propose in California. There are probably a million other shapes and places, each one as unique as you are.
