Watch Pacific Beach as Southern California's luxury second home and vacation property destination. Joy Bender and Rob Aumann with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty share Pacific Beach or PB located south of the La Jolla cliffs, and north of the Mission Bay jetty. In the past Pacific Beach had been heavily populated with surfers, college students, and young professionals. In recent years many of the properties have turned over bringing up property values and this affluence is bringing in trendier more expensive dining. Pacific Beach has the most developed nightlife scene outside of downtown San Diego with a great variety of bars, ice cream shops, and restaurants. The streets are a grid concept and very flat for easy walking and biking.
A very small portion of northern Pacific Beach is in the La Jolla school district making that area highly coveted. These streets include parts of Cass, Turquoise, Sapphire, Crystal, Loring, Van Nuys, Archer, Amity, and Agate.
