Mar 6, 2013 - Beach time in San Diego

San Diego has many diverse activities for charter bus visitors suc as SeaWorld, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, over two dozen museums, and Legoland, which all call San Diego home. There are also ample shopping and sightseeing opportunities to be found. But San Diego is most well known for its beaches, with miles and miles of sandy beaches awaiting the visitor who arrives in a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Company San Diego.

Pacific Beach is part of a group of beaches known as “The Strand,” and is one of the most popular beaches in San Diego. Crystal Pier, a great spot for charter bus visitors to go fishing, watching people and viewing ocean life, separates Pacific Beach from North Pacific Beach.  There are different areas for swimming and surfing, however, it is not a good location for scuba diving. Lifeguards are on duty every day, and there are public restrooms and showers available. This popular beach, and its three-mile boardwalk, boasts over 25 restaurants and 20 bars, in addition to several shops and spas. Pacific Beach tends to draw a younger crowd, and is extremely popular with charter bus visitors enjoying spring break.

No charter bus trip to San Diego would be complete without a visit to La Jolla Shores and La Jolla Cove, which occupy part of the 7-mile coastline in La Jolla, 12 miles north of downtown San Diego. The smaller waves at this quiet beach area make it a perfect location for scuba diving lessons.  The beachfront boat launch at La Jolla Shores is the only one within city limits.  The small beach at La Jolla Cove is bordered by cliffs and is one of the most photographed beaches in California. Charter bus visitors to the cove enjoy great water visibility, which makes snorkeling and scuba diving a favorite activity.  There are great tide pools, which gives rental bus visitors an up-close look at aquatic life.  Hermit crabs, starfish, small fish and even a small octopus have been spotted in the tide pools. There are also many seals and sea lions in the area.  Within a short walk of the ocean, picturesque shopping and restaurants abound in La Jolla.

Be sure to take your charter bus over to Mission Beach, located in the middle of “The Strand." This two-mile stretch of beach is popular with locals as well as charter bus visitors, and can get rather crowded in the summer.  Swimming and surfing are at the top of the list of activities available here, but bicycling, playing volleyball, and in-line skating are great options as well.  Diving is a popular activity here, because of many shipwrecks to explore.  Adjacent Belmont Park offers free parking, moderately priced restaurants, shopping, carnival games, a roller coaster and rides for smaller children.  Lifeguards are on duty year-round, and there are restrooms and showers available. Check out nearby Mission Bay, which offers kayaking and windsurfing.
