    Mission Bay _ your mission, should you choose to accept it

    Grab your skateboard, hat, and swim trunks _ you're headed to San Diego's Mission Bay! This placid saltwater lagoon lies within the sprawling Mission Bay Park _ the largest man-made aquatic park in the country. Within its more than 4,200 acres, you'll find everything from sailing and paddleboarding to sunset riverboat cruises, and your Mission Bay vacation rental will put you right in the heart of this sun-soaked waterfront paradise. Over-the-line, a beach sport that's a little like softball, is a popular pastime, and the bayfront Fiesta Island holds an annual tournament.

    A bay in the life on San Diego's Mission Bay

    Waterfront recreation is the name of the game in Mission Bay. Everything's on the table, from jetskiing and kitesurfing to paddleboarding and riverboat cruises. There are plenty of boating agencies offering chartered fishing tours, and whalewatching is a seasonal favorite. Back on dry land, you can enjoy bonfire, barbecue, and picnic opportunities along the 27 miles of shoreline, and there are a number of campsites around the bay as well. If you're feelin' like wheelin', just snag one of the many beach cruiser rentals and you'll be pedaling off into the sunset in no time.

    Mission Bay's wild, wonderful waterfront

    After a grueling day of sun-baked revelry, you may want to entrust any further planning to an entertainment professional. Fortunately, your Mission Bay vacation rental is surrounded by 'em. SeaWorld San Diego is a family favorite with locals and visitors alike, and you'll find an aquarium, rides, and dolphin and sea lion shows throughout the park. Or you can journey back to a simpler time at Belmont Park, a beachfront amusement park. The park boasts concessions and thrill rides, but the main attraction is the Giant Dipper, a 1925 wooden coaster that's also been designated a National Historic Landmark.

    There's more to the shore in Mission Bay

    Mission Bay is a saltwater lagoon on the western edge of San Diego, just inland from the Pacific Ocean.

Now the bay has 27 miles of shoreline, including a number of sandy beaches and islands. A popular spot for kayaking, you'll find inlets and bays along Tecolote Creek on the east side of the bay, while the San Diego River empties into the Pacific just to the south.
