    Take a trip to P.B. and experience the spring-break vibe year round.

    Nicknamed P.B. by ocean-loving locals, Pacific Beach is a chill neighborhood in San Diego and home to its most popular stretch of sand. Known for a year-round spring-break vibe, Pacific Beach offers great surf, a festive boardwalk, and tons of bars and casual restaurants. Parks with breathtaking views, and bay beaches with calm waters make families and kids feel welcome, too. Nestled between La Jolla to the north and Mission Bay to the south, your Pacific Beach vacation rental will be within walking distance of the shore, as well as an easy drive from the area's celebrated amusement parks.

    Your new daily grind: beach, park, beach, park

    It would be a shame to show up in P.B. and shun the outdoors, so get out there. Pacific Beach itself is the most popular and has plenty of watering holes nearby. North Pacific Beach is a quieter stretch, backed by cliffs up to 75 high that prop up its scenic boardwalk. At its north end is Tourmaline Surfing Park, reserved for surfers, windsurfers, and kite boarders. Kate Sessions Park is further inland and the perfect place for a bike ride with a view, while Fanuel Park on the bay is ideal for picnicking and kayaking.

    Killer whales and killer rides are a short swim from P.B.

    Visitors and year-round residents alike know how to enjoy the simple things: sand, sun, and sea views, but your Pacific Beach vacation rental will be close to some major attractions as well. SeaWorld San Diego is just a couple miles south in Mission Bay, and its animal habitats, rides, and shows are designed to fascinate marine enthusiasts of all ages. Sidle west of SeaWorld and you'll be in Belmont Park, right on the water. This vintage amusement park has arcade games, a zip line, and a throwback roller coaster built in 1925.

    Sunny or sunnier _ it's hard to go wrong in Pacific Beach

    Visitors can enjoy the Pacific Beach beaches year-round. The best weather for sunbathing and ocean swimming will grace you from July to October, when highs are in the 70s or 80s and water temps are around 70¡F. The winter and spring are a little less reliable, with lows in the 40s and 50s, and occasional rain, but the emphasis here is on occasional. Sunny days are the norm in P.B. If you'd like to snag a Pacific Beach vacation rental and stick to a tighter budget, book during winter and beat the crowds.

    See rabbits, rare birds, and watch out for a rattlesnake

    Set on the Pacific Ocean, just north of Mission Bay and cut by the Rose Creek Watershed, Pacific Beach is surrounded by wetlands, marine plant life, and the creatures who love them. The Kendall-Frost Mission Bay Marsh Reserve, on the south side of P.B., offers high marsh and mudflats, and is home to one of California's rarest birds, the light-footed clapper rail. Kate Sessions Park, further inland, has a wild side, too, and hikers can spot squirrels, rabbits, and rattlesnakes under a mix of native and exotic trees.
