There’s a reason why this spot is called what it is: Sunset Cliffs is the place to go to catch that perfect sunset. Every photographer’s dream and every surfer’s post ride relaxation spot, Sunset Cliffs are not a well-kept secret but they shouldn't be passed up.

See Willy?

Whale watching is a big draw in San Diego and the city is perfectly poised to view these formidable sea creatures in their annual migrations. Hop on a tour or scout them yourself from the shoreline.

What’s In The Pool?
