We have rented a boat and enjoyed going boating on Mission Bay. We have also packed a picnic and enjoyed a day outing at Mission Bay Park. From the park, one can watch the various water sports activities that people are enjoying. On a hot day, swimming there is also fun to do.

Took our kids to mission bay for a few hours, and they had such a fun time! It was beautiful, and clean. Don't expect clean bathrooms, the are pretty stinky. It is a beach, so i guess i shouldn't expect anything less.

great to spend time with family. Play in the water, camp in the RV or just have a pick nick and watch the stars. If you have a boat or water craft you can play on the water. Great local spot.

One of my favorite places to go. I actually lived here many years ago and even though it has grown, it is still as pretty as always.
