Here’s one of my all-time favorites… in fact a friend and I just cruised down the Strand from Coronado to Imperial Beach on Friday night. Want to take a beach drive in Southern California with no traffic? Well, this is the place for you.
The Silver Strand is about eight miles of sand that separate San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean. The highway runs right down the middle, with spots where the bay laps one side of the road and the ocean waves pound the other. There are city views, with the bridge and downtown San Diego, plus the South Bay cities of Chula Vista and National City.
Stop off for a bite to eat on the end of the Imperial Beach Pier and loop around the Tijuana River Estuary parks. Something not to be missed. Enjoy Summer on the Strand.
