At Mission Bay, San Diego’s most popular outdoor destination, your options are limitless – at least as long as they have something to do with water. With 4,600 acres, Mission Bay is the largest human-made aquatic park of its kind in the world! You can easily spend your weekend soaking in the ocean sun up, sun down, until you grow webbed toes yourselves, and still not get bored. Only 8 miles from San Diego Airport, Mission Bay is easiest to reach by taxi or Uber, since parking is limited and hundreds of water aficionados flock here every day. 27 miles filled with waterfront parks, public beaches, and palm-lined recreation paths are waiting for you to make the most of them. Head to Ski Beach for casual gatherings, picnics, and bonfires on the beach. If you’re here for a more active lifestyle, you can rent sailboats, jet skis, kayaks, and power boats from Mission Bay Aquatic Center then hit the water full speed. To meet some fellow aquatic creatures, drop by SeaWorld San Diego, one of the most popular marine-life parks in the world. If you do ever make it out of the water, don’t go too far – Mission Bay sunsets have a habit of turning all kinds of pink and purple. A weekend getaway to this water nirvana that is Mission Bay will leave you exhausted but happy for sure!
