Imperial Beach is home to the Sun and Sea Festival which takes place every summer. Here, people gather together for sandcastle sculpting, music, children’s craft activities, and an International food fair. Take a walk along the only Farmer’s Market in San Diego located on the beach offering local fruits, vegetables, and community art. Visit Silver Strand State Beach, a 7 mile long isthmus where you could camp, have a picnic, go bicycling, bird watch and enjoy the sunny weather.

For a fun outing for the family, plan a visit to the South Bay Drive-in, San Diego County’s only drive-in movie theater in the Southwest. If you like educational adventures, plan a trip to the Tijuana River Estuary located in Southwestern Imperial Beach. It is home to many endangered birds and wildlife. The Tijuana Estuary is the perfect place to learn about sea life being that it is the largest salt water marsh in Southern California!
