The Pacific Inn is within walking distance of the water in Seal Beach, making it eminently convenient for day visitors. There’s also Mothers Beach, the chance to enjoy a gondola, and some great restaurants close at hand, plus the Aquarium of the Pacific.
Eclectic Eateries – One of the nearest dining options is the Yucatan Grill, where day guests can choose from a menu of Mexican and Caribbean dishes including jerk chicken and fish tacos. If you prefer sushi and other traditional Japanese delights then try Koi Japanese Cuisine, a family-owned establishment that also offers seasonal appetizers and sake. Steak and seafood are both available at 320 Main, a refined restaurant complete with cocktail bar, but if you like things more down to earth then traditional pub grub is served at Hennessey’s Grill, an Irish pub with beer on tap.
Sun, Sea, and Sand – A short distance from the hotel is Mothers Beach, a family-friendly strip of sand where you can lounge in the sun and soak in the rays. If you’re buzzing with energy there are beach sports such as volleyball, and nearby picnic areas. To the south, and even closer to the hotel door, is Seal Beach and the M & M Surfing School.
Aquarium of the Pacific – The Aquarium of the Pacific is to the west (discounted tickets are available in the day hotel’s lobby). This exhibition of marine wildlife includes touch tanks and behind the scenes tours, and features intriguing creatures such as rays, sharks, crabs, and jellyfish.
Gondola Getaway – Gondola Getaway is a perfect opportunity for a romantic date, with blankets provided to keep you warm if it’s cool and top notch service during a relaxing waterway journey. Be sure to bring along little snacks for this treat, which is particularly good around festive periods to see the decorations.
