Walk over water! Piers are the perfect place to take a stroll, fish, marvel at the surfers below, or simply people-watch. Tops among them:
• The Oceanside Pier is the second-longest pier in San Diego County. The pier is 1,942 feet long and is made of wide, sometimes uneven wooden planks. Ruby’s Diner is at the end of the pier.
- At Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach, you can rent one of 29 cottages on the pier. Make your reservations way ahead of time: 11 months for a summer reservation, four months for a winter time stay.
- The Ocean Beach Pier is the longest concrete structure on the west coast at 1,971 feet.
- A walk down the Imperial Beach Pier ends at the Tin Fish Cafe and with a view of Mexico.
