A place for swimming, surfing and bodyboarding
Pacific Beach is a great place for swimming, surfing, and bodyboarding. There are a good number of bars, restaurants, and places to stay.

Check out the yearly Pacific Beach festival:

Or, the largest annual Brazilian festival on the West coast:

Just walk around to find a number of inexpensive beach restaurants, featuring mostly Mexican or California fusion.

Rent a bike to cruise the area:

Or, take a surf lesson or rent surfing equipment:

Tip: It definitely gets tight with traffic here. I recommend coming early for parking, or taking a cab and spending all day here playing in the surf or walking the boardwalk for people watching!
