Pacific Beach Community
Known for it's nightlife and Boardwalk along Ocean Front Walk, Pacific Beach has turned over many bungalows and beach cottages in recent years to luxury homes and condos. The community of Pacific Beach lies on the west coast of California, about 15 minutes north of San Diego. This town is nestled between La Jolla to the north and Mission Bay and Mission Beach to the south. This seaside gem is widely known as one of the best “spring break” towns on the west coast. Like many of the towns in California, Pacific Beach developed during the railroad boom in the late 1800s. Throughout the 1900s, Pacific Beach was filled with a mixture of vacant lots, single family homes, and family owned farms. In the last few decades, however, property values have skyrocketed and today, million dollar homes can be found lining the streets of Pacific Beach.
