Pacific Beach

PACIFIC BEACH, or “PB” as it is affectionately known, is another one of San Diego’s wonderful beach communities.  It came to be in the boom years of 1886-1888 when a group of visionaries cleared a grain field, mapped out the saleable lots and built a Race Track, San Diego College of Letters and a railway which connected PB to downtown San Diego and later to La Jolla.  Although none of these exist today, they were instrumental in developing the community.

Bounded   on the North by La Jolla, the South by Mission Bay Channel, the East by Interstate 5 and to the West by, you got it, the Pacific Ocean.  After many revisions, in the 1900s the primary north-south streets were named after prominent federal officials and were placed in alphabetical order, e.g. Archer, Beryl and Cass. The east-west streets, by contrast, were named after precious stones e.g. Turquoise, Opal and Emerald.

In addition to its glorious beaches which stretch from the cliffs of La Jolla to Mission Bay Park, it is also the home to Sea World, Crystal Pier, Kate Sessions Park, Belmont Park, with its famous roller coaster, and many great surfing spots.  Attracting the ‘young at heart’, PB is known to be one of the more enjoyable spots for evening entertainment.

Educationally, as part of the San Diego Unified School District, PB has several elementary schools, Pacific Beach Middle School and Mission Bay Senior High School. There are also a variety of private schools from which to choose.
