We went here to see the street festival and enjoy what the vendors had to offer. I used to live here when I was a kid and it really has not changed, except the buildings have different tenants. Really nice beach town.

What a great little town. I used to live here and loved it. Fun to walk down Newport Avenue and check out all the quaint shops, neighborhood bars and restaurants. People watching is the best You'll think your back in the 60's again.

Spent 10 days in OB with no car. Everything is so close you just don't need one. The beach is great, the Farmers market is a lot of fun and you will have no problem finding good food.

Ocean Beach is another section of greater San Diego. Best location is Sunset Park, offering magnificent, free views of the sunset. Those ocean view homes are also quite impressive.

Had the best time while swimming against those waves. No easy to find a parking but if you go early you get your spot.
