It seems like the location is still the predominate factor in deciding where to live. I recommend paying Pacific Beach a visit. Neighbors with the affluent La Jolla to the north, the south offers access to Mission Bay and Mission Beach and easy “in and out” access onto Interstate 5, which makes adventuring all of California obtainable. Staying in “PB” as the locals call it has diverse attractions, journey west and enjoy one of the greatest benefits of being on the Pacific Ocean and visit Crystal Pier. Pacific Beach is known well for the boardwalk that stretches 3.2 miles along the coast, containing multiple varieties of food options, licensed fishing, and offers a variety of local festivities being celebrated on the beach.
Pacific Beach has made a name for itself in having great restaurants, an expansive variety of bars, and clothing boutiques. The nightlife will have a younger scene then Downtown San Diego, but still offers sleek modern hotels and fine dining for the more upscale inhabitants. The Crystal Pier is known for The Crystal Pier Hotel, with rooms situated over the water, it’s a romantic getaway. Adjacent to the pier is the boardwalk where there is over 3 miles along the beach. Pacific Beach offers multiple food options from hotdog stands to sit down restaurants and an assortment of fun activities to take part in. Rent a bike or skates, then set your speed to coast and enjoy the scenery.
Enjoy a place where Southern Californian living is embodied. Pacific Beach is beach front property so where ever you are, the sand and sea’s refreshment is within walking distance. Whether you’re part of the young professionals or the more mature upscale patrons there is a place for everyone to be themselves with other likeminded natives. A place where the Southern Californian vibes are a long established commodity and an infectious “enjoy yourself attitude” reigns.
