The best remedy to beat the heat? An escape to sunny San Diego! Here are five great ways to cool off while still enjoying the sunshine:
One of the great things about fishing from the beach in the surf in San Diego County is that you’ll likely have the beach to yourself. That sounds crazy in a place that has nearly 4 million people and more in the summer months, but if you plan it right, you’ll have the beach to yourself as you try to fool a long list of ocean fish prowling near shore.
I like to fish an incoming tide early in the morning or late in the day toward sundown if I can time that right. Fewer people, more fish. Check the tides and go from there. It’s also a good idea to scan the beach you intend to fish at low tide to see where the holes or any structure are and where fish might hold when the tide rolls in.
What’s great about fishing the surf is you never know what you’ll catch. The list includes barred surfperch, walleye surfperch, yellowfin croaker, spotfin croaker, corbina, halibut, bat rays, leopard sharks and shovelnose guitarfish.
Head to La Jolla Shores for a dive along the wall of La Jolla Canyon and witness the abundance of sea life unlike any other place in California. Add to that the constant reshaping of the canyon wall by the ocean and you have a fascinating area to dive whether you dive it once or several thousand times.

I pulled a unique double recently, and the two activities can only be done in the winter in San Diego. I mean, where else can you play 18 holes at Torrey Pines Golf Course, and then go hoop-netting for spiny lobsters in the evening? The golf was predictably average for the 10-handicaper I am. But […]
As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, the beauty of San Diego’s nightlife scene is that there is something for everyone. Whether you’re wearing your best Sean John outfit or would rather party it up in your boardshorts and a t-shirt, San Diego has a place for you to wile the night away. Looking specifically at the more relaxed, “beach style” nightlife of Ocean Beach, Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, there are a number of great options.

How can you say no to that? After our guide Tommy gave us the safety speech and showed us the route, we boarded our speedboats (which can […]
I know my dog loves going to the dog beach in Ocean beach. The area is huge allowing him to run in the sand and the water while my wife and I can keep our eyes on him. MSN recently highlighted dog parks and beaches throughout the country and of course ocean beach made the […]
