Looking for a nice place to spend the day? Look no further than Solana Beach.
I did just that recently, walking, talking, shopping–and a little lunch at Claire’s. Solana Beach is a real beach town where real people live, work and enjoy coast life. It’s unique that way and one of San Diego’s last coastal communities with a hometown feel.
But Solana Beach is also great for tourists. Walk along 101, cross the bridge and check out the shopping on Cedros Avenue–it’s just a comfortable place to spend your day.
Fletcher Cove is the only beach not blocked by the tall bluffs. Fletcher Cove was blasted out with water cannons around the turn of the last century to make for easy access. All other beach access is via stairways located on either South Sierra Ave. or Pacific Ave.
Port Brewing is located in Solana Beach along 101– great beer and pizza.
Drive up the coast, get off the freeway and check out Solana Beach. Or take the train. The Coaster stops in Solana Beach daily.
