Take in great sunset views of Mission Bay and if you're lucky, you might catch the fireworks from Sea World. The beach is open until 10:00pm and dogs are allowed off leash.

This island offers scenic views of of mission bay and if you're lucky, you can catch fireworks from Sea World. The bonfire rings are stationed around the island, so make sure you get there early to stake yours out, especially if you're headed there on the weekend. Dogs are allowed off leash at the beach, so the great news is your pup can go for a swim while you're there. Also be sure to bring some food if you're planning to stay out there for the night.

Need to pick up some food on the way there? Head to JV's Mexican Food to pick up some supplies.

This is a great spot to roast some marsh mellows and smell that campfire smell if you cant get out to a campsite for the weekend. Just get there extremely early.

this is really a great little oasis...and if you have a "water dog" this is a great spot to teach them how to fetch in the water
