Ocean Beach (also known as O.B.) is an eccentric and funky beachfront neighborhood of San Diego. About 7 miles northwest of Downtown, it’s just south of Mission Bay and Mission Beach, and directly north of Point Loma.

The area features sunset cliffs offering incredible views of the Pacific Ocean.

And there’s also a peculiar mix of antique and vintage stores, bars, restaurants and artist studios.

The economy largely consists of small, independent retail businesses.

Newport Avenue, the main business street, features many family-owned businesses… and the community is actively opposed to chain businesses, and very few exist here.

And according to www.finethehome.com, property in Ocean Beach is much more likely to be rented (83.5%), than it is to be owned (16.6%). Ocean Beach’s proportion of rented units is high for San Diego, which reports 52.5% of its properties to be rented.

Ocean Beach contains the Ocean Beach Cottage Emerging Historic District consisting of various Craftsman Bungalows, cottages built from 1887–1931. The Ocean Beach Library and Strand Theater (a historic single-screen movie house opened in 1925) are designated historic city landmark buildings.

The massive, 1,971-foot-long Ocean Beach Municipal Pier, is the longest concrete pier on the West Coast. There is 1 mile of beachfront area in Ocean Beach with a walkway that runs along part of it.

Local events include the Ocean Beach Street Fair and Chili Cook-off in June, a jazz festival in September, the Ocean Beach Christmas Parade in December, the Ocean Beach Kite Festival in May, the Ocean Beach Canine Carnival near Halloween and weekly Farmers Markets on Newport Avenue.

In addition, 17 public and private golf courses can be found within 10 miles of Ocean Beach.

20 hospitals are within 12 miles of Ocean Beach. Both the UCSD Medical Center and Scripps Medical Center are less than 5 miles away and the San Diego County Psychiatric is right nearby as well.

Now we’ll take a look at the various retirement housing options in Ocean Beach – San Diego CA.
