    Lots of walking, food & great stores! Here during the week on business but still gets crowded during commute hours.

    Make it out to the end of the wharf to watch sea lions through the open cut-outs. Also, about halfway down on the south side (facing the Boardwalk) there is a platform that the sea lions hang out on.

    This is really a surprisingly nice walk. Metered parking available just outside, but parking is pretty reasonable so just drive in if you don't feel like walking. Sea Lions swim right under the pier

    Riva has the best fish, and even if you don't go for dinner - get the gelato at the gelato bar on the left as you go in the door. FABULOUS!

    In two spots far out on the southern side of the wharf there are stairs hidden out of the way that let you down to water level. Sea lions lay about there you can get inches away and face to face with

    Vino Prima Wine Bar is a must! It's almost at the end of the wharf across the walkway from Olita's Cantina! Go there! The owners are awesome and the wines....divine! :)

    Ride the Giant Dipper, awesome drops and dips. There's also a pretty view of the pier and beach while climbing to the top.

    Had great fish & chips at Miramar Fish Grotto! Wasn't greasy, but tender and crispy on the outside.

    Go down the stairs on the opposite side of the road from the Stagnaro Brothers restaurant to get the best view of the sea lions.
