San Diego’s Wave House

What’s more perfect than a day at the beach? A day at the Wave House in SD! What exactly IS the Wave House? The Wave House is an entertainment venue that offers everything we love about SD: it is a combination of music, barbecue, beach, and an artificial wave machine, Wave Loch. Guests can listen to music, sip drinks, enjoy the view of Pacific Beach, and try surfing in a safe environment.
