La Jolla is North from Downtown San Diego. This area is more residential and offers fabulous beaches, upscale shopping boutiques, and fabulous restaurants. One of our best kept secrets!
Mission Beach is a quintessential beach town, with classic beach cottages and brand new architecture, energy abounds in this walkable community just minutes from the San Diego International airport, freeway close, and a hop skip and a jump to all of the local San Diego attractions and flavor. Belmont Park, situated in the heart of Mission Beach, features The Giant Dipper Rollercoaster, one of two oceanfront roller coasters still operating on the west coast. The Giant Dipper was originally built in 1925 and was recently restored, it is a delight for the family! Ride the bumper cars and the carousel, play video games to your hearts content, soak in the Southern California lifestyle all the while being right on the beach! Mission Beach features Sand volleyball courts, a boardwalk that is fantastic for bike riding, rollerblading, skate boarding, running, or just sitting on the seawall to people watch and take in the breathtaking sunsets.
Mission Bay sits across from Mission Beach. This spit of land stretches about 5 miles long and is almost completely surrounded by water. Mission Bay hosts the Thunderboats, Crew Classic, Great sailing, Water skiing, Windsurfing and more! The white sandy stretch of beach is preferred for toddlers with gentle waveless water to play in.
Oceanbeach is just a few miles south of the Mission Beach area. This town offers some great antiquing, fun restaurants, beautiful cliffs that line the oceans edge and amazing beach combing at low tides.
San Diego offers year round festivities, from the sand castle building contest in South Bay to the world famous Ocean Beach Christmas Parade. Miramar highlights the blue angels and the Crew Classic Regatta enlivens Crown Point in the spring. Didn’t think you could ice skate in San Diego?
