Explore history with an Ocean Beach apartment rental

Situated south of Mission Bay, Ocean Beach was once a bohemian community but now attracts all kinds of travelers. At the northern end of the beach is Dog Beach, where your furry friends can run around without a leash. You can buy fresh fruits and vegetables and listen to live music every Wednesday at the Ocean Beach Farmers Market. Antique shops line Newport Avenue, where you can buy crafts and unique gifts. You'll notice many beachfront apartments are located near cliffs, which gives you a more impressive view of the ocean. Most Pacific Beach apartments provide Wi-Fi so guests can use the internet.

 
Things to do

If I could turn back time in Ocean Beach

Only a few miles east, the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park feels worlds away from the shops and taquerias of Ocean Beach. Here, you can stroll through an open-air history museum that offers a one-of-a-kind perspective on local life in the early 19th century. The park boasts burros and a working smithy, and it also hosts regular events and seasonal celebrations throughout the year. And at the Women's Museum of California, you'll find several lifetimes worth of memorabilia from history's most baller ladies, all in an ex-Navy training facility.
