A Fun SO CAL Way To Celebrate The Holidays - #Holidaybythebay @hiltonbayfront

It's that time of the year, when CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR...everywhere!  
Decorations and lights, music and the spirit of giving...I love everything about Christmas.

I was not paid to feature this post!  We were offered free admission to this event in return for me writing an honest review/feature about our experience at the event.
I especially love taking my kids to do new things and experience celebrating the holidays in new ways.  
Last night was no exception... 
We hopped in the car and headed to San Diego to the Hilton right on the Bay.  We found a parking spot in the parking garage and headed to the hotel.
The hotel is decked out for the holidays.   
They have a giant "REAL" gingerbread house in the lobby as you enter.  
The kids were pretty amazed by it all!
Then we headed down to the Bay...where the fun was about to take place. 
And heck, the view wasn't half bad either.  
I just love San Diego!




We checked in...got our wrist bands, took a few pictures on the red carpet, enjoyed a complimentary beverage while we waited (hot apple cider) and patiently waited for the fun to begin.  Oh yeah, there was a huge list of VIP Red Carpet attenders too.  Actors and actresses from all sorts of television shows.  My kids were honored to be among them.



Once the gates opened, they were off.  
First stop was the Ice Bumpers...which were so much fun!





Then we headed to ICE TUBE down the ice tubing slide.  
Even I had to give that a try!  It was so much fun!  
You slip slide right down the hill, twirling and giggling as you go.  
It's so much fun!  This is the closest thing us SO CAL people get to "snow sledding".





 
We headed inside for the kids to play in the ball pit (it was their first time ever in one of those) and write letters to the USO for Christmas$1 from every ticket goes to the USO San Diego.
Then they mailed them off in the giant mailbox.

Then we took a moment to enjoy a nice warm fire and some comfy sitting...at the Yule Lodge.  We may have indulged in a treat or two as well.

 


This wasn't all the fun to be had...there is also a BUCKING Reindeer, you can decorate Christmas Cookies and Paint Christmas Stockings, indulge in some holiday snacks, treats and drinks...and so much more.  
Plus, there is an hourly light show and a Christmas Tree lighting.
If you're in the San Diego Area and you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this HOLIDAY SEASON, I highly recommend you head to the Hilton on the Bay and experience "HOLIDAY BY THE BAY" with your family too!

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was compensated only by complimentary tickets for us to attend this event.
