Mission Beach is a neighborhood located on the northwest side of San Diego, California. Residents of the community are about a 15-minute commute from the downtown San Diego area. 

The Mission Beach area is known for its many bars and restaurants and there are plenty of shops and services within easy walking distance for locals. When walking with your dog, you can stop for a bite to eat at Kojaks or Tangier Bar as both eateries will welcome your pooch on their outdoor seating. 

San Diego has warm weather throughout the year. Rain does occur in transition seasons and May and June are known for being overcast and even foggy. Fog in Mission Beach can linger due to the coastal location making visibility poor, so use caution. Summers are warm but not usually overly hot and breezes from the ocean in this coastal neighborhood make treks with your dog bearable even during hot months.

Mission Beach is located on a peninsula between Mission Bay on the east and the Pacific coast on the west with the San Diego River on the south side. This neighborhood has two miles of waterfront with Ventura Cove, Santa Barbara Cove, and San Juan Cove containing marinas on the east side. 

Mission Boulevard is the main commercial corridor lined with businesses that runs through the district from north to south. Mission Park is a very built up neighborhood. Residential dwellings were mostly developed in the 1930s and 40s as summer cottages with small lots. Due to the population density, beaches, and commercial activity, this is a very heavily trafficked area, so your pup should be acclimatized to vehicular and pedestrian traffic. 

The neighborhood has separate sidewalks for you and your pup to walk on and this community is built on a sandbar, meaning that the terrain is flat and easy to traverse.
