San Diego’s Ocean Front Boardwalk Named One of America’s Best

One of the best beach boardwalks in America is right here in San Diego – but we already knew that!  Travel & Leisure Magazine recently recognized Ocean Front Boardwalk as one of America’s Best Beach Boardwalks. Ocean Front boardwalk is a three-mile boardwalk running along Mission and Pacific beaches.  By day, it is a never-ending parade of bicycles, skateboarders and people catching a little sunshine.  By night it becomes a happening scene with clubs coming alive SoCal style.  Along the boardwalk you will find Belmont Amusement Park which features great views of the ocean from its wooden roller coaster.  What you won’t find is an uptight attitude.  The boardwalk always features a diverse crowd of visitors, carefree locals, and even a few suits trying to catch a wave on their lunch break.

One of the best spots to enjoy the boardwalk is at Tower 23’s award winning restaurant JRDN.  The restaurant is a contemporary steak and seafood restaurant featuring California cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.  Additionally, on the weekends it offers brunch from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  To celebrate Ocean Front Boardwalk status as one of the best boardwalks in America, JRDN is giving away four passes to its weekend brunch where you will be able to see firsthand what a cool boardwalk it is.  To win, enter here.

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
