Pacific Beach  

Pacific Beach is a neighborhood in San Diego, California, 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. Once dominated by young people, surfers, and students, the population is slowly aging and becoming more affluent due to rising real estate and rental prices. The area, as locals call it “P.B.,” is home to various bars, restaurants, and clothing stores along Garnet Avenue and Mission Boulevard and is one of San Diego’s most developed nightlife spots.

Before contact with Europe, the Kumeyai tribe settled the area and established a large village, then called Hamo or Jamo, on the banks of Rosehip Creek at the entrance to Rose Canyon. Like many cities in California, San Diego, CA‘s history can be traced back to the completion of the cross-country railroad in 1885. During the boom years of 1886-1888, D.C. Reid, A.G. Gassen, Charles W. Pauley, R.A. Thomas, and O.S. Hubbell. Hubbell “cleared the cornfields, pitched the tents, mapped the parcels, hired the auctioneers, and got down to business.” The railroad connected Pacific Beach to downtown San Diego in 1889 and was extended to La Hella in 189.

Pacific Beach’s early landmarks and attractions included an asbestos factory (founded in 1888), a racetrack, and the San Diego College of Letters (1887-1891), none of which remain today. At the turn of the century, lemon cultivation and packaging dominated the local economy. A preparatory school, the San Diego Military and Naval Academy, was established in 1910 in the old college building, followed by a middle school in 1922 and a public high school in 1930.  Kate Sessions Park has a playground, large lawns with ocean views, and acres of undeveloped hiking and mountain biking areas. Faneuil Street Park is a popular bayside park with play equipment suitable for toddlers and children. Rose Creek offers open spaces and lush wetlands through Pacific Beach and Mission Bay.   Surfing   Pacific Beach is available to all surfers. The difficulty is moderate, and you can surf all year round. However, the southerly winds in autumn and winter are ideal for surfing. Winters tend to be in the high 50s, and summers are in the high 60s to low 70s, so many surfers wear dry suits or wetsuits. HVAC San Diego King
