Growing up in San Diego, you inevitably end up taking the water/ocean for granted because if you’re like me, summer get-togethers or particular holidays were always at the beach or parks. Gosh, there’s Mission Beach, Fiesta Island, Coronado, Ski Beach, Crown Point, the list goes on and on. Tourists think San Diego is the coolest place to live, and for the most part it is. It only hit me how much I missed the water when I moved inland (my way of saying nowhere near the coast, LOL).
Mission Bay Park is one of my favorite spots. Depending on which day you go and which part of the park you go to, you’ll find people walking, roller-skating, biking, picnicking, playing volleyball, throwing frisbees, flying kites, etc. If people-watching is your thing, this is one of the best places. I sometimes go here to walk. One of my good friends and I used to meet here (or at Mission Beach which is a lot more “livelier” with *interesting* people) for our weekly Saturday walking/brainstorming/girl talk sessions, then end up having brunch afterwards.
The water is mesmerizing. If you had any worries beforehand, they’ll soon be washed away after staring out into the deep blue. 🙂
Note: This area is right off I-5, Clairemont Drive/Mission Bay Drive exit. Head west once you get on exit, turn right at stop sign (I think the street is East Mission Bay Drive), and make a left into parking lot.Tweet
