Many people who live in PB are "beach lovers" and frequent this beach all year round.
From sun-up to sun-down there are things to see and do at the beach in PB. I've mentioned the main things, but if you are like me and not into the typical beach activities this is still a great beach to come to.
I usually visit this beach after a storm when the waves are high and the sea breeze is fresh and cool. So, if on your visit to San Diego, we have a rain storm--which is rare even in winter--go to the beach in the morning and enjoy.
Favorite thing: The pier *is* the heart of Pacific Beach. In this picture you see the arch over the entrance, inviting you to "sleep over the ocean"
Enjoy the beach...rollerblade along Mission Bay, visit Bellmont Park, and enjoy PB nightlife.
Fondest memory: Renting a beach house on the boardwalk and celebrating my graduation. Here we are making a toast.
