Play in Pacific Beach and experience the laid back surfer’s town. The two miles of coastline between La Jolla and Mission Beach are always bustling with locals surfing, families playing at the beach, and visitors taking in all the sights. The boardwalk in PB (as it’s called by locals) is the best display of beach culture in San Diego. You’ll find college students studying in beach-side cafes, residents riding beach cruisers, surfers running to get to the water, tattooed skateboarders weaving through the crowd, and children roller-skating by. Aside from outdoor activities, Pacific Beach is home to a variety of fun restaurants, privately owned boutiques, hole-in-the-wall food spots, and great nightlife.
