Location, Location, Location

The Dana is located in beautiful Mission Bay San Diego, one of the most breathtaking spots in a city filled with nothing but. Our property sits on 10 acres of sun-soaked land overlooking the bay itself, with lovely marina views and plenty of green space thanks to adjacent Sunset Point Park. Of course, San Diego itself is also one of the most desirable destinations in the nation thanks to our gorgeous year-round weather, bountiful beaches, theme parks and fantastic food culture. So if you have guests or attendees who will be coming in from outside the area, they’ll thank you for having your event somewhere so amazing!
