‘Tis The Season to Celebrate, #SavinaLiving Style
The most wonderful time of the year is finally upon us! There’s no better way to bring on the holiday spirit than to participate in some seasonal fun around the neighborhood. Put on your favorite festive sweater and facial covering, grab a cup of something warm and get ready to enjoy the holiday season in San Diego. We’ve rounded up our favorite things to do this year near Savina.
Take a holiday stroll in Little Italy
With Little Italy just steps away from Savina, residents can go for a walk and enjoy some lovely decorations during holiday months. San Diego’s Little Italy is notorious for its festive, colorful décor and providing the community with activities to experience the holiday magic. Not to mention, the neighborhood is filled with cafés, restaurants and fine dining venues where you can find an array of delicious festive foods and holiday-themed cocktails to be enjoyed outdoors al fresco or as take-out to enjoy at home. This year, there will be a mailbox in the Piazza della Famiglia where you can take your kids to mail their letters to Santa.
Watch the Little Italy Holiday Special virtually
Celebrate the season in the comfort of home by joining Little Italy in their annual holiday tradition. Due to the current state of the world, the neighborhood is celebrating and spreading holiday cheer a little differently this year by going virtual. They are broadcasting the Little Italy Holiday Special on Saturday, December 5th at 5:30 pm. The community can tune in and watch the tree lighting ceremony as they cover a 30-foot tall Christmas tree with lights and festive décor. The holiday special will also feature a musical performance and a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ by Santa & Mrs. Claus.
Little Italy Wednesday Holiday Market
Another great holiday activity you can partake in this season is visiting the Little Italy Wednesday Holiday Market in the Piazza della Famiglia. There you can find delicious foods from farmers and artisan food producers as well as unique items and gifts from local crafters. This market will be operating under the same safe COVID-19 guidelines as the Little Italy Mercato.
San Diego Bay Parade of Lights
Stop by San Diego’s Embarcadero – only moments away from Savina – to watch more than 100 private boats decorated with holiday lights sail through the waters of San Diego Bay in the Parade of Lights on December 13 & 20 at 5:30 pm. There will also be fireworks and best of all – the event is free!
Savina’s high-rise condominiums in downtown San Diego make enjoying life easy. Savina’s central location on the front doorstep of little Italy and steps away from the waterfront gives residents easy access to San Diego’s best restaurants and attractions, helping create a holiday season beyond compare.
