Best Local Scene in San Diego

, 3 Options Found

Near the man-made islands of Mission Bay, this beach runs along Mission Boulevard and boasts a fabulous boardwalk. One of the best places in San Diego to soak up the city's beach lifestyle, this is an unsurpassed area for people watching or building sandcastles. For a faster pace, rent a bike or in-line roller skates or better yet, take a ride on Belmont Park's world-famous wooden roller coaster. Whatever attraction you choose, be prepared for large crowds and limited parking at Mission Beach.

The San Diego Presidio and San Diego Mission once sat atop rolling hills, where Lieutenant Pedro Fages began his quest to make San Diego the first European settlement on the west coast. Now, more than two centuries later, this is a city park. This hilly park has lovely between statues, museums, picnic areas, and walking trails. In 1960, San Diego declared the Presidio a historic landmark, and today guests can tour Spanish style museums, learn about the Mormon Battalion that fought in the Mexican-American War, and get a bird's eye view of San Diego Harbor.

Known as the harbor for the first European voyageurs to ever step foot in California, Point Loma is an attraction of great historic importance. Often described as the place where California began, this seaside community of San Diego overlooks the San Diego River to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the south and the Old Town to the east. Today, Point Loma is home to two important military bases, a university and a national cemetery. Proximity to the bay attracts surfers, sport fishers and yachts from all around the world.
