Pacific Beach

lodginglodging reservations in Pacific Beach

Dubbed PB by most locals, this is college town USA, with surf and tacos in America's finest city. High density beach living, with easy access to freeways, nightlife and recreation. Bike around the bay, surf Tourmoline or skate the ocean strand. San Diego has many colleges and universities, so plenty students do end up renting a pad near the beach.

    Skate rats & surfboards, great restaurants, shopping, bars & beaches. A good nightlife spot for the younger college crowd. Parking can be a problem in summer months. Alcoholic beverages are permitted on the sand part of the beach (no glass tho) from noon to 8:00 pm, which makes this a popular party spot on weekends & summer days.
