The perfect weather and abundance of scenic locales makes for a lot of great cheap things to do in San Diego. If you are looking to enjoy an amazing San Diego day, take a bike tour through Ocean Beach and ride down to Sunset Cliffs for some amazing views.
Ocean Beach Surf and Skate offers rentals of everything you need to enjoy a day in OB to the fullest, including bike rentals. Rent a bike and set off exploring one of San Diego’s most unique neighborhoods. San Diego has plenty of quaint coastal towns to visit but none are quite like OB, which in certain places seems like it has been stuck in time. Start off by cruising down Newport and watching swimsuit clad San Diegans and tourists making their way to and from the beach, while taking note of delicious restaurants like Hodad’s, Nico’s, and South Beach and bars like Sunshine Company, Pacific Shores, and Tony’s. Ride down to the coast and take a look at the iconic OB pier with the jagged contours of Sunset Cliffs to the left and the jetties, volleyball courts, and dog beach to the right. Stop by one of the local restaurants you found particularly interesting, and then start heading down to Sunset Cliffs. Hiking around Sunset Cliffs is one of the most popular things to do in San Diego. Here you are presented with stunning views of the Pacific below cliffs and a rocky shoreline with surfers dotting the horizon looking to catch the perfect wave. Time your trip right and see the beautiful sunset that gave this area its name.
Bikes can be rented for $10 for two hours, $20 for four hours, or $35 for 8 hours. Make sure you schedule some time to explore the shopping and dining in and around Newport and to take a dip in the Pacific, play a game of volleyball, or walk down the Ob pier which, at 1971 feet, is the longest concrete fishing pier on the West Coast. Exploring OB with all its charm and quirks is one of the best things to do in San Diego today.
Funseekers can purchase a FunGig that provides them with a bike and a friendly guide who is in-the-know when it comes to OB hotspots. Funbassadors can provide an extra bike or help a Funseeker rent one and then provide a detailed, entertaining tour of one of San Diego’s most popular destinations, filled with scenic spots, one of a kind local shops, and delicious restaurants and craft breweries.
