When I started out, I wanted this page to list all kinds of things to do in San Diego & Pacific Beach. But as I was making up the list it just kept getting longer & longer. Boy, there’s a lot to do in this town! So I scrapped that idea. Next I thought to list local restaurants. Uh-uh. There are over 140 places to eat, drink and be merry just in the Pacific Beach area alone. Let’s just say we have most of the regular places (Mickey Ds, Denny’s, KFC) nearby and a variety of different cuisines to keep just about everyone happy.

So then what to put on this page? Well I settled on listing a few of the local Mission Bay / Pacific Beach establishments that might make your job as a tourist easier.
