It is great to walk around and take pictures. The view of the sunset is beautiful. Take a stroll on the pier for even better views.

If you're in San Diego for business, I highly recommend getting out of downtown and visiting Pacific Beach/Mission Beach boardwalk area. There is a fun little amusement park, Belmont Park, for those nostalgic at heart. Park here for free if you have a rental car....More
