Beach is a community within the City of San Diego. It has its own business
association, pier, shopping mall, festivals and character and charm which
make it a city unto itself, though technically it is not. Pacific Beach
shops tend toward new wave with bright colors and great names, though the
brand name stores and shops are visible along Mission Street, the busy
thoroughfare that runs parallel to the beach. Starbucks, Ralphs, Best
Western, Tony Roma's, Hooters and many more are visible along this well
trafficked route. If you love the beach, PB is a wonderful beach town to
visit. With Mission Bay on one side of the road and Pacific Beach on the
other, Catamaran Resort is ideally located with sailboat rentals and bay
frontage that includes free rides on the stearn wheeler triple deck boat,
Bahia Belle at night. Catamaran Resort is on the border of Pacific and
Mission Beaches so you can walk, roller blade or ride a bicycle along both
for a great exercise regimen. The hotel is an incredible paradise with
Tiki Torches, Koi Ponds and exotic birds. Check back soon for our review,
"Catamaran Resort is for the Birds" and we'll tell you about the strange
bedfellows in the suite next to ours.
With lots of sand to wander along, lie upon, surfers to watch, food to
munch and liquor to consume if you choose, you will find yourself torn
between the beach and San Diego attractions that tourists can't resist.
And if you think you have only the beach to enjoy, you are wrong. Pacific
Beach melds into Mission Beach, home of the Roller Coaster, The Plunge,
carnival rides and gobs of fun.
Pacific Beach is a place that you could pack up and move to, if not for
expensive housing. Old and established, it includes tall, palm tree-lined
streets and multi-million dollar houses to make you drool. Some of the
gorgeous homes sit along Mission Bay and some are perched on hills
overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The northern edge of Pacific Beach shares a
border with La Jolla, another expensive place to live. Who needs to live
in such places, though? We tourists must have special spots as escapes
from our routines so these locations remain special if we don't take them
