Mission Bay, Beaches, and SeaWorld Travel Guide

Top Reasons to Go to Mission Bay, Beaches, and SeaWorld

Sun and sand: With sand stretching as far as the eye can see, Mission and Pacific beaches represent the classic Southern California beach experience.

Bustling boardwalk: College kids partying at the bars, families grilling in front of their vacation homes, and kids playing in the sand—take in the scene with a stroll along the Mission Beach boardwalk.

Shamu mania: Even parents will find themselves falling in love with this charming orca whale at one of SeaWorld's spectacular shows.

Bayside delights: A quiet respite from the nearby beaches, Mission Bay is ringed with peaceful pathways, playgrounds, and parks.

Get out on the water: Catch a wave, paddle a kayak, or rev a Jet Ski at this irresistible water-sports playground.
