Sightseeing near Mission Beach

- Mission Beach

Ever since SeaWorld San Diego first opened in 1964, this water themed park has been among the most popular attractions in California's second largest city. The park's killer whale, dolphin, and sea lion shows may still be its most famous attractions, but visitors can also see cats, dogs, and other dry land animals perform at Pets Stadium. The Journey to Atlantis flume and rollercoaster is one of SeaWorld's most thrilling rides, while Sesame Street's Bay of Play is aimed specifically at children.

The Shipwreck Rapids raft ride takes passengers past a sea turtle exhibit, but Manta may be the only roller coaster on Earth accompanied by an aquarium and touch pool for bat rays. The Wild Arctic simulator provides a look at far northern wildlife in the southernmost section of California.

- Belmont Park

The American west coast contains only two roller coasters with coastal locations, and one of them is Belmont Park's iconic Giant Dipper. This family-friendly amusement park also contains the Plunge, an indoor swimming pool larger than any other in the world. The antique carousel, featuring many intricately carved animals, has a history which is almost as fascinating as that of the park itself. Surfers can even brave the FlowBarrel and FlowRider's artificial waves.

Transportation near Mission Beach

This city's most famous form of public transport is the San Diego Trolley, which is actually a light rail system which travels throughout most of the main tourist attractions. The Green Line connects the Old Town with Mission Valley and Santee, while the Orange Line travels between La Mesa, El Cajon, and the downtown area. The Blue Line stops at most tourist attractions and travels all the way to the Mexican border. Bus service is also available, but infrequent and sparse in several regions. San Diego's sunny and warm climate provides ideal cycling conditions.
