Pacific Beach/Mission Beach Boardwalk
In the upcoming months we have to take advantage of our beautiful weather, and what better place to do that than to be by the beach! A scenic run from Pacific Beach to Mission (and back again) is a great way to burn the calories, enjoy the beach and people watch-all at once! One way is about two miles from the Crystal Pier to Belmont Park in Mission Beach. On the one side, the boardwalk is lined with unique houses. The other side, the beautiful Pacific ocean lined with people. What’s not to love??
Tuesday Brady and I switched up the route a little bit and ran from World Famous (my favorite boardwalk restaurant in PB) over to the Catamaran (bayside) and took the path around the bay to Ingraham Street, about 2 miles each way. Each route has its own scenic attributes and that day we felt like running along a less hectic path. This path is much more calming, and scenic in its own way, where you can see rowers, kayakers and sailors making their way leisurely about the bay. It was a great run!
Back to the good stuff- FOOD! As a reward (probably not the healthiest of choices) Brady and I ate at World Famous for their amazing shrimp tacos for Taco Tuesday-$1.50 on Tuesdays! (I feel like I’ve talked about this before …). They are to die for and relatively healthy (or so I tell myself!). It’s another perfect end to a great workout. And such a great location right on the boardwalk! If you need a refreshing beverage, PB Alehouse is right down the street too. Their rooftop bar has the most spectacular views–especially when the sunsets. But that will be for another post coming soon. 🙂
I will be sure to write more about ways to be active in our sunny city. If you have any ideas- please let me know!
