Providing A Place for Patriotism

San Diego is a destination rich in military history and culture. Some of our most popular event venues and group activities are centered around the city’s past and current military activity. We’ve operated incredible corporate events from the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier and Museum (a magnificent “floating city at sea” that housed over 225,000 soldiers through its decades of service) and MCAS Miramar (an active Marine Corps air station). Our groups have sailed alongside the Coronado Island Navy Base, biked around the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial, and even army-crawled their way through Navy Seal bootcamps.

San Diego’s military presence is so strong in our event planning world, we often forget to take the time to zoom out and look at the bigger picture. The politics of war are often tangled and tragic- sometimes it feels strange to call these military-specific venues and activities “entertainment.” But it’s important to remember that we utilize these landmarks to facilitate memorable and educational experiences for our visitors. In doing so, both our team and our guests have the opportunity to recognize and honor those who have served and do serve our country.

In honor of Memorial Day, here’s a look back at some of our San Diego office’s most memorable patriotic events and activities through recent years:
