Ocean Beach

San Diego's Ocean Beach is right next to the San Diego River, near Point Loma & Sunset Cliffs. Also known as O.B. (OB), this eclectic beach village has the flavors of hippy, trippy, surfer & granola. In 2001, the liberal residents opposed the opening of coffee chain, Starbucks, with a slogan of "No Corporate Whores on OB Shores".
