Although, there are still many things to do in Mission Beach. Of course, there is the beach, where you can spend hours swimming, surfing, sun-bathing, or biking down the broadwalk.

There is also the historic Belmont Park amusement park as well as countless number of bars and restaurants all across this beach community. Check out this list of the best things to do in Mission Beach for more details.

The best part about Mission Beach is its location. It is only a 15 minute ride to downtown San Diego, where you can explore the popular Gaslamp Quarter or catch a baseball game at Petco Park. For nature lovers, the beautiful and expansive Balboa Park is also only about 15 minutes away, while Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve is right up the coast about 30 minutes away.

Overall, Mission Beach is a great neighborhood that is centrally located where you can enjoy the beach and easily reach the best sights of San Diego, so make sure you consider it during your next trip to the West Coast.

Nathan said: “Scott and Janet’s place is above and beyond amazing. It was a perfectly clean, quiet condo in an optimal location. There is so much to do around the area, all within walking distance, so we never had to take our car anywhere. The guest book came loaded with great recommendations, you couldn’t possibly go wrong. Janet and Scott were amazing hosts and communicating with them was easy. The added bonus for us was the space was also baby proofed and stocked with a high chair and pack and play which is perfect for our 6 month old. Overall, our stay was too short and we would love to return another day.”
