Pacific Beach

Pacific Beach is a neighborhood in San Diego bounded by La Jolla to the north, Mission Beach and Mission Bay to the south, interstate 5 to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. While formerly largely populated by young people, surfers, and college students, because of rising property and rental costs the population is gradually becoming more professional, and more affluent. "PB," as it is known as by local residents, is home to one of San Diego's more developed nightlife scenes, with a great variety of bars, eateries, and clothing stores.

Pacific Beach's namesake stretches for miles from the mission bay jetty to the cliffs of La Jolla. The boardwalk is a pedestrian walkway that runs approximately 3.2 miles along the beach from the end of law st. in the north down into Mission Beach, ending at the mouth of Mission Bay in the south. There are numerous local shops, bars, and restaurants along the boardwalk, and it is generally crowded with pedestrians, cyclists, rollerbladers, and shoppers. Also adjacent to the boardwalk is the Crystal Pier, a public pier and hotel at the west end of Garnet Avenue.

In addition to bordering the Pacific Ocean and Mission Bay Park, Pacific Beach includes Kate Sessions Park and the Pacific Beach recreation center. Rose Creek, which flows through Pacific Beach before emptying into Mission Bay, provides open space and a rich wetland area.

Two of the biggest streets in Pacific Beach are Grand and Garnet. Garnet is well-known as a bar scene in San Diego, which gets very crowded on the weekends. When you get a few blocks away from Grand and Garnet, PB is a relatively quiet, pretty coastal community.
