Enjoyed the walk, many beautiful places to take pictures. The ocean was calm, but there was a brisk breeze coming in that made it chilly. Definitely great for the family outing.

This is a good stretch of beach and sightseeing along the way. You have to park at meters which is 1.75 an hour. Quite pricey. There are ships and restaurants and ship museums to see,

Whether you are with your partner, family, or just on your own, this is a lovely place to go for a walk. Beautiful sights and lots of photo ops. There are great eateries along the way too. It was a great place for our family to slow down and talk about our day and our plans.

The San Diego Bay walk area has a wonderful view of the bay. Walking along cliff side is steep and should only be attempted by those who don't have health issues. Although, parking is extremely limited, 2 hr parking limit and they have restaurants, businesses watching how long cars are parked.

Came out to visit this location for a business trip. I decided to take a stroll in the area because of its proximity to my hotel. There were a lot of homeless people living in the park. I'm not so sure how safe this location is when the sun goes down.
