- Ocean Beach was great for getting some beach time in and for having access to lots of restaurants and bars (Tip: Visit Rachel’s Bake Shop for a mouth-watering selection of sweets and savory delights!)
- Sailor Haven’s was worth a visit for the Sunken Forest. This maritime forest contains a rare assembly of plants and trees, considered unique for their ability to grow on sand and so close to seawater. The walking trail through Sunken Forest was pretty neat but we were unprepared for the bug bites. So if you do ever go, take some insect repellant!
- Cherry Grove is known for its flamboyant gay community and its parties. Sure enough, we found ourselves at a standup comedy routine-cum-dance performance by a very sassy drag queen. (Clearly, never a dull moment at Cherry Grove!)
