Pacific Beach strikes a perfect balance between a traditional beach community and a city feel with San Diego so close by. When you stay at Pacific Shores Inn, you are in the perfect spot to experience it all, from the sandy shores to the cultural attractions. Here are a few highlights you may want to consider during your visit:
The bay is to the south of Pacific Beach and offers visitors all the water sports you can think of. Rent a stand-up paddle board, book a whale-watching tour, charter a sailboat or deep-sea fishing excursion, or take a surfing lesson to feel like a local. Be sure to explore the Mission Beach boardwalk to dine in cafes or buy a souvenir.
The park is fun for the whole family, with midway games, wild rides, and interactive games. For a more immersive amusement park, you should visit Legoland, up the coast in Carlsbad, or Sea World, which is closer to the hotel but no less entertaining.
Old Town San Diego
Old Town has done a wonderful job of preserving the history and architecture of the city’s origins, and visitors love to tour some of the buildings and learn more about what life was like long ago.
San Diego Zoo
The Zoo is located in Balboa Park, is a beloved attraction with thousands of animals to see. Make time to see some of the other sites at the park, which has museums, gardens, and performance venues.
Gaslamp is the place to go for dining and nightlife. This historic district retains its old-timey feel, but the many restaurants, shops, and nightclubs appeal to modern tastes.
La Jolla to the north of Pacific Beach, has an upscale feel, but its natural sites are not to be missed. Stop by Children’s Pool Beach or Seal Rock for a glimpse of the sea lions and seals or rent a kayak to paddle around the sea caves along the beach.
