Local San Diego Information

Outdoors. San Diego is lined with miles of beaches. A favorite is Torrey Pines State Beach. Near the UCSD campus is La Jolla Shores Beach. You can rent kayaks from one of the shops on Avenida de La Playa and explore the underwater park. Pacific Beach has a boardwalk, with restaurants and cafe's (end of Garnet Ave).  Black's Beach east of campus is a nude beach.  San Elijo Lagoon behind Solana Beach is a bird sanctuary. At the end of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard you can view the sunset over the cliffs.  Other attractions include San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park as well as Balboa Park and its museums. Also see Roam-o-Rama a SD Reader column written by Jerry Schad for nearly 20 years. Jerry’s book Afoot and Afield San Diego County. is still a classic.
