Memories That Last a Lifetime
P U B L I S HE R
Derrick Breaux D IRE C TO R O F B U SINE S S DE V E LO PME NT
ost people hold the memories of a few precious life experiences close to their heart. These are the memories that you are excited to tell your close friends and family about. They can be trips that you’ve taken, academic accomplishments, or even sporting events. Regardless of the specifics, these events are often remembered as if they were yesterday. I certainly have a handful of special memories that I am always eager to talk about. My youngest daughter recently experienced something that very few 12-year-old kids get to experience. She and her fellow softball teammates from the 4S Ranch 12U All-Stars went on a 13-game winning streak and became the California State Champions in their division. I still get choked up mentioning that title. It was an amazing thing to watch. Looking back, I realized that I was the exact same age when my Little League team went to the Texas state tournament. Although we didn’t become state champs, 32 years later I still have very fond memories of my experience at the tournament and the journey getting there. In fact, I’ve told the story countless times – just ask my sweet wife who has had to listen to it more times than I care to admit. And that brings me to my point. As these girls made the last out to win the state championship game on that hot and sunny day in Lancaster, the pure joy and emotions that followed were amazing to watch and absorb. There were tears of joy, lots of hugs, and plenty of celebrating that took place on the field. It was at that very moment that the magnitude of my daughter’s life experience became a reality. It was quite an emotional feeling for my wife and me when we realized that our daughter had just experienced a lasting life moment that she will carry with her and talk about for decades to come. I wish there was a way that we could select which life experiences we hold onto and carry with us for the rest of our lives. It would make things so much simpler. However, one thing that I have realized is that these life experiences tend to pick us – and not the other way around. Some people refer to them as a gift, and I definitely agree with that analogy. I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to my sweet daughter and her talented teammates. I am very proud to be a part of your journey and life experiences. Your hard work, enthusiasm, and zest for life are a true blessing. Keep doing what you do!

PHENOMENON With a Passion for Music and Art, Anne Liu Dreams of Inspiring Others by MICHELLE TREMBLAY
Name: School: Grade: Parents: Sibling: Website:
Anne Liu (16) Canyon Crest Academy 11 Sean and Linda Henry Liu (19) www.anneliupiano.com
“Listening to other renowned musicians inspires me and motivates me to work harder.”
ixteen-year-old Anne Liu was introduced to the piano at a very young age. “I think I was around two years old at the time,” she recalled, “fascinated by and curious of this black-and-white instrument and attracted to the crisp and satisfying sounds that it produced.” At the time, Anne didn’t know what she was listening to but only has a memory of being captivated by her older brother playing the piano. Shortly after, Anne started playing the piano and quickly picked up the skill. She is now an accomplished pianist, receiving numerous accolades and having performed extensively throughout the United States, China, and Italy. “I do have a favorite composer, and it’s Mozart,” shared Anne. “Listening to other renowned musicians inspires me and motivates me to work harder.” This past year, Anne was named the National YoungArts Foundation Finalist Winner – the highest honor for the selection. “YoungArts’ signature program is an application-based award for emerging artists ages 15 to 18 or in grades 10 to 12 from across the United States,” explained Anne. Selected through a blind adjudication process, YoungArts winners receive valuable support, professional development, and educational experiences working with mentors, and performance and exhibition opportunities at some of the nation’s leading cultural institutions.
In January, Anne traveled to Miami for National YoungArts Week, where she met with other finalists as well as renowned artists from around the nation. “I was really excited to get to work with the master teachers… and meeting with other artists and musicians,” recalled Anne. “To be able to work with so many talented young artists and prestigious musicians in Miami was truly an experience that I treasured. These musicians pass down their knowledge to us to prepare us for a future in the arts.” Anne was also recently awarded the Musical Merit Scholarship by the Musical Merit Foundation of Greater San Diego. “Winning the Musical Merit Scholarship grand prize was an incredible experience,” shared Anne. “Winning it required huge commitment and confidence. There were many great musicians in the competition and everybody did amazing.” Aside from her musical endeavors, Anne enjoys drawing and painting. She will be a junior at Canyon Crest Academy this fall, where her favorite subject in school is art history. “I like to know about the lives of the composers and the situations from that time period,” she shared. “They are the examples for young artists like me.” As for her future plans, Anne replied, “I plan on pursuing music professionally in music conservatories. I wish to become a concert pianist to share my love for music with others around the world.”

RB CHORALE SCHOLARSHIP SUPPORTS ASPIRING MUSICIANS
LOOK YOUR BEST Named Best Cosmetic Surgeon
he RB Chorale recently awarded its annual scholarships to six young musicians. The chorale, led by founder and director Pat Bean, offers scholarships to local high school graduates who are seeking to further their musical education in college. The scholarship fund relies on community donations, and the scholarship committee selects six finalists every spring. Those finalists have the opportunity to perform at the RB Chorale’s annual two-night summer showcase, Best of Broadway, where the audience votes on the final rankings for each night. The Saturday and Sunday first-place winners were awarded $4,200, second-place winners received $2,500, and third-place winners received $1,700. Violinist Erica Hwang won the first night. She graduated from Torrey Pines High School and will study violin performance and business at Stanford University. Second place went to Ellie Barret, a vocalist and graduate of San Marcos High School. She’s starting at Arizona State University this fall, after which she intends to be a professional entertainer. The third finalist on Saturday was Ryan Zhou, who performed on piano and also plays the viola. He graduated from Torrey Pines High School and will attend Yale University this fall. The second night of performances ended with Eduardo Pintado winning first place. Eduardo is a vocalist and graduate of Chula Vista Senior High School. He’s heading to University of California San Diego. Cameron Lincoln placed second for his piano performance; he graduated from Eastlake High School and will attend Stanford University. Third place was vocalist John Lettang, a Poway High School graduate who plans to study music performance and audio engineering at University of Colorado Boulder.

Going For Gold
LOCAL GOLD AWARD GIRLS SCOUTS HONORED
armel Valley residents Caroline Mackey, McKenna Pruett, Alice Shashkina, Navhaa Sinha, and Dora Tabachnick have earned the Girl Scout Gold Award – the organization’s highest honor – for demonstrating extraordinary leadership by identifying and tackling social issues. Each of the girls took on different topics for their Gold Award projects. Caroline wanted to inspire more girls to pursue science careers, so she created Scientists of Tomorrow, a 10-session elementary school program that included lessons such as “Detective for a Day,” where she and guest presenters led science experiments and sleuthing activities. McKenna partnered with a team of experienced surfers and lifeguards to develop an education program for the children of Tijuana’s Niños de la Promesa orphanage, teaching them to guard against the dangers that
accompany the fun and beauty of the ocean. Alice’s project focused on honoring and respecting the elderly by creating a club to perform musical recitals at retirement homes. She recruited peers to help lift the spirits of seniors through music, while addressing issues of senior isolation, neglect, and depression.
Navhaa created a smartphone app to help tennis players of any income level improve their game without the need for expensive private coaching, allowing users to film their play, isolate strokes for review, and instantly identify areas for improvement. After testing it on a sample population, the app has since been downloaded throughout the world. Dora identified a need for enhanced personal safety skills for females, so she created workshops in collaboration with her Tae Kwon Do studio, educating girls in grades 7 through 12 about how to defend themselves if they can’t avoid a dangerous situation. Each candidate spent one to two years developing and implementing their project, and were among 58 Gold Award winners honored during a recent ceremony at Copley Symphony Hall.

THE DOUGLAS FAMILY CHERISHES THEIR COMMUNITY AND TIME TOGETHER by BECCA BARR | photo by Alan Smith Photography
armel Valley residents Trent and Trish Douglas know how special their neighborhood is. “The diversity that exists in our neighborhood is remarkable. There are several different cultures, nationalities, and traditions that are all around us,” said Trent. “It is a gift to be able to raise a family with so much accessible diversity.” Trent is a plastic surgeon who co-owns Restore SD Plastic Surgery, a private practice. He previously served 22 years in the Navy, treated wounded warriors, was deployed four times, and retired as a Navy Captain in 2017. He has visited Southeast Asia to provide humanitarian aid and reconstructive surgery. Trish worked as an ICU nurse for 30 years before recently retiring to focus her attention on their two children, Connor and Allie. She has run 10 marathons and has even summited Mt. Whitney. The pair met during Trent’s general surgery residency while he was doing a transplant rotation at Scripps Green Hospital. “We
were taking care of a mutual patient and hit it off right away,” related Trish. “We have been married for 15 years now.” They were married at the Vatican, and even met Pope John Paul II! Connor, age 14, is in ninth grade at Cathedral Catholic High School. An avid athlete, he has played baseball, basketball, and lacrosse, but his passion is soccer. He plays soccer for the DMCV Sharks on the 2004 Elite Clubs National League team and his goal is to play soccer in college. He also loves English, history, science, and geography. Allie, age 12, is in seventh grade at Pacific Trails Middle School. She is creative and artistic, and dances at GC Dance Company in Solana Beach where she competes at the elite level in lyrical, contemporary ballet, and jazz. She is also involved in Girl Scouts and the National Charity League with her mom. They are all avid skiers and love to travel. Trent and Connor enjoy fishing together, while Trish and Allie delight in baking and entertaining. Despite how busy life keeps the Douglases, the thing they cherish most is time together. “All four of us are reinvigorated by enjoying
downtime at home as a family. Relaxing as a family is a welcome change of pace from a busy surgical career, challenging school days, and the commitments required of elite athletes,” shared Trent. Whether it is reading a book, doing a project in the garage, or enjoying a coffee in the backyard, the Douglases enjoy doing it together.

Creek to Bay Cleanup
I Love A Clean San Diego’s (ILACSD) 16th Annual Creek to Bay Cleanup drew approximately 6,000 volunteers to 116 cleanup sites around San Diego County in the spring. Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve and Torrey Pines State Beach were among the cleanup sites this year. During the three-hour cleanup, volunteers across the county removed more than 175,000 pounds of trash and debris, helping to enhance the overall health and beauty of San Diego’s natural environment. Volunteers participated in beautification projects such as painting park structures, planting native trees and plants, mulching, and weeding. Participants also showcased their zero-waste commitments this year in the “Rocking Reusables” Sony Photo Contest. Creek to Bay is one of two annual county-wide cleanups and hundreds of specific local cleanups hosted by ILACSD each year. Learn more at www.ilacsd.org.

BUILD ING COMM UNITY The Coastal Community Foundation Makes a Local Impact
ommunity is the cornerstone of the Coastal Community Foundation (CCF). For over 30 years, the Foundation has been supporting nonprofits, students, and other local projects in the North Coastal
communities of Encinitas, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Carmel Valley, Cardiff, Rancho Santa Fe, Carlsbad, and Oceanside. Various charitable funds allow the Foundation to award scholarships and grants that support everything from the arts and music, social services, and animals, to the environment,

veterans programs, and youth and community projects. Read along as we speak with CCF Executive Director Sharon Omahen about how the organization helps connect donors to important community needs.

Q&A with Coastal Community Foundation Executive Director Sharon Omahen
Please give us a brief history of the CCF. When was it started and why? Coastal Community Foundation was founded in 1987 by local leaders and community members that included Bill Dean, Anne Omsted, Margaret Schlesinger, and Liz Ferguson. These residents wanted a local community foundation that would keep resources here to benefit the community. For over 30 years, CCF has been supporting nonprofits, education, and community projects in the North Coastal area.
Which communities does the CCF serve? The Foundation primarily serves Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Carlsbad, and Oceanside. In 2017, 62 percent of our grants supported San Diego nonprofits and nine percent of the grants funded scholarships for North Coastal high school graduates.
What is the overall mission of the CCF? The mission of Coastal Community Foundation is to enhance the quality of life in the San Diego North Coastal area by directing philanthropic efforts toward community needs. We fulfill our mission by: • Helping individuals and families with their charitable goals today and in the future • Making grants to support nonprofit programs, education, and community needs • Providing support and guidance to nonprofit organizations
Please explain how charitable funds and donations work. Who is eligible to establish or give to a fund? Each charitable fund tells a story about how residents want to make a difference in their community. One family may want to honor a loved one through a memorial or a scholarship fund, or residents may choose a donoradvised fund that provides them with the ability to support a wide variety of nonprofits over the years. It’s simple for anyone to establish a charitable fund with a minimum of $5,000. Determine what you want to donate (cash, stock, or other assets) and select the name of your fund. Then, you have the flexibility to invest in causes you care about most over time. The Foundation takes care of all the administrative details. Anyone can contribute at any level to an existing fund or make a gift to one of the giving circles (Solana Beach, Encinitas, or the women’s fund, Hand to Hand).
Solana Beach Fund grants support programs that any nonprofit provides for Solana Beach. Hand to Hand grants are available to nonprofits in San Diego County. Scholarships are available to students from

Are there other ways to give to the Foundation? People can give their time by serving on a committee or volunteering at the Foundation’s office.
Please tell us about the Foundation’s grant and scholarship programs. Who is eligible to apply for them? Each grant and scholarship program has specific guidelines outlined by the donor(s) who established the fund. Some grants like Mental Health only support nonprofit programs that serve our North Coastal communities.

including the purchase of professional culinary equipment for San Dieguito Academy’s culinary classes. In January, Hand to Hand, our women’s giving circle, granted $39,500 to nonprofits that help women in San Diego County who have been victims of trafficking and that support women and girls who have been released from prison. Over the past nine years, the fund has granted $274,258 for women’s and girls’ programs.

Mental Health grants have supported counseling for children who have witnessed domestic violence, counseling and mental health programs for children who are homeless, and grievance programs for children who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
How does the CCF support the Carmel Valley community speciﬁcally? Education grants in arts and science are made for elementary schools. In 2018, $19,350 was awarded to Torrey Pines and Canyon Crest Academy for career education and training programs. In June, eight students from TPHS and CCA received scholarships. Recent grants have been made to San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy and the Del Mar School Education Foundation. Residents from Carmel Valley also contribute to a number of funds at CCF.

What is the most rewarding part of what you do? The most challenging?

The most challenging is that there are so many worthwhile programs and limited grant funds.

Why 30-Day Drug Treatment Isn’t Enough
esearch has shown that the chance for long-term success in recovery is exponentially higher in those who have managed to maintain a year of consistent sobriety versus that of individuals in their first days or months. This should come as no surprise when factoring in the physical aftermath of substance use as well as the behavioral and circumstantial change that can occur in a year, but the question still remains: how does one even begin to navigate the vital decisions made in the first year to create the best chance for successful long-term recovery? And beyond that, if the ﬁrst year of recovery is so important, then why is the standard length of drug and alcohol rehabilitation only 28 days? Unfortunately, the average success rate of rehabilitation programs across the country is dismal, with less than 20% of individuals who complete these programs maintaining any long-term sobriety. While insurance companies do cover some lengths of treatment, which vary from person to person, it is rare that insurance plans will cover lengths of treatment longer than 60 to 90 days in any meaningful capacity.
So what are our options when it comes to creating a solid foundation in sobriety after initial treatment is completed? The answer is simple: aftercare. Long-term, structured recovery homes such as New Life House oﬀer the guidance and stability needed for young men to gain a foothold in recovery that can be sustained. There are a variety of things that you should look at when choosing an aftercare program. New Life House provides: • The ability to work with individuals currently enrolled in their senior year of high school • Familial involvement and participation in their son’s recovery process • Over 30 years of experience providing one of the leading programs for young adults • Long-term structure and aftercare systems or continued recovery support • Working closely with individuals who are ready to leave primary, residential, or wilderness programs If you or someone you love needs help and guidance with

prevention is the key by TARKAN SIDAL, D.D.S., M.D.
It is well-known in the oral health field that untreated cavities and eventual dental infection can be a breeding ground for bacteria, which can spread to other body sites, especially in patients suffering from weak immune systems stemming from chronic disease, autoimmune disease, malignancies, or diabetes – and, of course, even patients with a healthy immune system are at risk. The concept of bacteremia is also well studied; bacteremia is the presence of live bacteria in the bloodstream. Bacteremia could occur after an oral surgical procedure, dental extraction, dental cleaning, gum surgery, or due to an ongoing chronic or progressing acute oral infection. Dissemination of oral bacteria could occur in as short as one minute follow-
ing an oral surgical procedure and reach main organ systems. However, our complex immune system is constantly protecting us from this. An oral cavity is a unique site as it is not considered sterile at any time; therefore, any bacteria breaking through the mucosal barrier or other anatomical barriers can cause bacteremia. Reported cases of dental infection seeding into the brain, heart, or backbone are not unheard of and all of these reported “extreme” cases have been experienced by myself and by other practitioners at some point in their career. However, dental infections more commonly affect the neck, face, and jaw. This becomes apparent with facial swelling or a swelling extending into the neck, below the jaw line, or with a similar variation. If the acute infection is not dealt with, then the swelling will affect swallowing and later breathing. Recovering from these kinds of infections creates a physiological and cost burden to the patient, not to mention these diseases are potentially life-threatening.
Therefore, it would be fair to summarize that simply, prevention is the key in any health matter in this century. It is a preventive practice to get checked by your dentist in a regular recall system for series of surveillance dental radiographic imaging, dental exams, and dental cleanings; this way a progressive chronic infection in the jaw bone can be identified, even if it is not showing any obvious signs. Once identified, the patient can be treated with a root canal or the extraction of the tooth. In 20th century and before, populations generally suffered from mostly infectious and communicable disease. However, after the invention of antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals, and the preventive understanding of infection control standards, the trend of diseases tipped more towards chronic and autoimmune diseases, at least in the western world. Although we have come a long way, we can do better in the dental field to prevent dental infections – this starts with patients’ regular dental care with their trusted dentist via a recall system, cleanings, periodic exams, and radiographic images so potential problems can be caught earlier.

ocated 15 minutes northeast of Carmel Valley in 4S Ranch, SKY Facial Plastic Surgery is owned by husband and wife team and local residents Dr. Sirius and Amber Yoo. Focusing on the face and neck only, Dr. Yoo and his team create customized treatments that combine cosmetic surgery with fat transfer, laser treatments, Botox, fillers, or skin care for impressive results that look incredibly natural. “I am blown away by how awesome Dr. Yoo did – he is the best,” shared one patient. “I am so excited and happy with the results. I have never seen my face look this good.” Double board certified in both facial plastic surgery and head and neck surgery, Dr. Yoo is one of a select number of surgeons in the nation to complete a prestigious fellowship in facial plastic surgery at Stanford University. This unique credential combination coupled with a reputation for natural-looking results are what set Dr. Yoo apart. “After several consults with other doctors in the area, I immediately knew after meeting with Dr. Yoo that he was the doctor I would trust for my surgery,” stated another patient. “He has taken years off my face without the ‘overdone look’ you see so often.” SKY’s delighted patients have continued to garner the company a lot of attention.

has Dr. Yoo won Ranch & Coast magazine’s coveted Best Cosmetic Surgeon award four years running now, but his wife Amber was also honored earlier this year as SKY’s Vice President for the second year in a row for leading one of the top 100 fastest growing Gator-led companies in the nation. (Both the Yoos graduated from the University of Florida.) When the SKY Team isn’t busy transforming lives, you’ll find them volunteering and supporting local charities. “Giving back to the community is a huge part of who we are at SKY,” explained Amber, an active member of The Country Friends, Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary, and United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council. “We support several fundraisers throughout the year and are proud to be annual sponsors for both Helen Woodward Animal Center and the FACE Foundation.” And this year, the SKY team is growing. Dr. Yoo and Amber are expecting baby Quinn, due late August! “I’m really excited and ready to welcome our first child to the Yoo family,” shared Dr. Yoo. A family-owned business that delivers the best results, provides impeccable customer service, and gives back to the community? SKY Facial Plastic Surgery fits right in to its beautiful North County home.

RECORDING ARTS STARS Diploma Program at Studio West Sees Alumni Shine
tudio West has been recording some of the biggest names in the music, TV, and film industry since it opened the doors in Rancho Bernardo in 1986. In 2004, they started oﬀering educational programs for industry professionals and hobbyists and in 2011 launched a full-time, 12-month Diploma in Recording Arts. Now the program has been established for well over five years, and many of the graduates have gone on to find success in the industry at studios and production facilities all over the USA. Here is a brief snapshot of some of the Diploma Program’s most successful alumni.
ALEX GEHRING Alex (’16) immediately began working at SIR Studios in New York City as a resident engineer working with both audio and backline. He’s had the opportunity to work behind the board for many established and up-andcoming artists in Manhattan and runs live sound at some of the coolest clubs in the city, such as BlueNote and Subrosa.
SAM McCORMICK Sam (’16) interned at Hans Zimmer Studios (Remote Control Productions), where he was quickly hired to assist with music for numerous television pilots. In January of 2017, Sam began working as a sound designer and sample editor at Amper Music, a new software company that helps people create unique, royalty-free soundtracks.
JACOB POWELL Jacob (’16) interned at Studio West and at the La Jolla Music Society Summer Fest before landing a job as an audio engineer at SIR Studios in New York City, where he works alongside his classmate and friend Alex Gehring.
SHELBY MEDDOCK Shelby (’13) found success with the Reggae band The Movement. Their album Side by Side, which Shelby tracked and mixed, debuted at #1 on iTunes’ Reggae charts and #2 on Billboard’s. She is now the audio engineer at The Compound Studios, and has produced five albums.
ORI RENDLER Ori (’14) is a location sound mixer for television and film. Some of his clients include ESPN, NBC, E!, Discovery, National Geographic, VICE, CMT, TLC, and more.
JONAH LEVINE AND BRIAN KEIM
Jonah and Brian (’14) are co-founders of Analog Media Productions, a digital media company based out of San Diego and Los Angeles. Their focus on video production reﬂects the importance of visual images in the way we consume media.
STEVEN GROOT Steven (’16) became a sound mixer and editor at Turning Point, a non-profit Christian organization in Lakeside. Though the job required five years’ experience, thanks to his Diploma Program knowledge, he was oﬀered the full-time position of sound mixer/editor. Steven works collaboratively with members of the television, radio, and digital media teams to provide audio mixes.
These are just a sample of the amazing things that Diploma students have found themselves a part of. Numerous grads have found success as independent sound engineers with large companies in LA, New York, Nashville, and other major cities across the U.S. If you are interested in pursuing a career in this field, just think of where our 12-month Diploma in Recording Arts can take you!

NEW GIRLS’ WATER POLO COACH AT CATHEDRAL CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL
2130’s Cathedral Catholic High School (CCHS) recently welcomed Colette Reid as the new head coach for the girls’ water polo team. Carlsbad resident Colette Reid has been the head varsity swim coach and a college counselor at CCHS and is excited to be involved with the water polo team as well. She is taking over for Jaclyn Puccino, who recently accepted an assistant coach position at Harvard University. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as the head coach of the girls’ water polo program at Cathedral Catholic High School,” Colette said. “I look forward to the challenge of continuing the winning tradition established by Jackie during her time as head coach.” Colette currently coaches at the Carlsbad Water Polo Club and
the Olympic Development Program San Diego Cadet Team. She was an assistant varsity water polo coach at Carlsbad High School last year and was on the Sonoma State University water polo team as a student. As coach for the varsity boys’ swim team at CCHS, Colette was named Coach of the Year for the 2017-2018 season. Athletic Director Dave Smola added, “She is an excellent coach and counselor. She is familiar with Cathedral Catholic and knows well the expectations of the families and school. Her knowledge, values, and work ethic will help provide a seamless transition for the water polo program.” Learn more at www.cathedralcatholic.org.

ON LAND AND IN
THE WATER Enjoy Everything Mission Bay Has to Oﬀer This Summer by SAMANTHA EDWARDS
weet summertime in San Diego means sunshine, lazy beach days, and outdoor barbecues. With its 27 miles of shoreline, grassy parks, playgrounds, and breathtaking views, Mission Bay is perhaps the best place to congregate with friends and family this season. The area is known as the perfect spot for aquatic sports, so you can try your hand at everything from sailing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding to jet skiing, wake boarding, and kite surfing. The bay is also home to boat docks, sailboat and motorboat rentals, and sport fishing and whale watching launching facilities. Mission Bay has plenty to offer for those who prefer to stay on land. Walk, jog, roller skate, or bike along the meandering paths surrounding the bay before enjoying an afternoon picnic in the sun. Strike up a game of volleyball or beach tennis. Break out the barbecue for a sunset dinner or gather around a waterfront bonfire for marshmallow roasting. Be sure to arrive early to claim your spot – it can be busy during the summer months. Visitors with furry friends in tow can venture onto Fiesta Island, a large peninsula within the bay with even more recreation options, including an off-leash dog beach and calm waters for swimming. You’ll also be in close proximity to several local communities – Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, and Ocean Beach – each with their own attractions for continued fun. So whether you’re looking for an action-packed afternoon adventure or just a place to relax and refresh, Mission Bay has something for everyone to experience this summer!
