This spot is near a bunch of awesome stuff. During the summer, the fairgrounds are about a mile away. The bay is 2 blocks away, and it is an 11 mile circle that you can walk, bike, or jog. There are lots of restaurants and a supermarket within a few miles.
Additionally, along the bay there are all sorts of awesome things to do: kayaking, paddle boarding, and other water related activities. It is 4.5 miles to some of the best surf Southern California has to offer.
