If you have just one stop to make in Southern California, make sure it’s Pacific Beach. I love this place. It’s where I lived on my own for the first time. Small cabin style studio fully furnished with an air mattress and plastic take home containers from Olive Garden. I had everything I needed….plus the ocean and Crown Point Bay just a few minutes away.

Our return visit started with the Single Fin down in Mission Beach followed by repeat visits to the Baja Beach Cafe drinking margaritas and eating many California style burritos, tacos and nachos.
