Mission Bay Park
Today’s largest man-made aquatic park in the United States, Mission Bay is San Diego’s epicenter for outdoor fun. For the land-lovers, Mission Bay offers nearly 14 miles of hiking and biking trails that snake around the water’s edge. Among the countless inlets and coves are 19 sandy beaches, many of which have picnic tables, fire pits, basketball and volley courts, and playgrounds. For those who enjoy water sports, rent boats or jet skis and cruise around the islands or wind surfing and water skiing! There are also wildlife reserves and campgrounds around Mission Bay.
