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.
The Wave House is located in Belmont Park, which is at the end of Mission Beach. It hosts many events and competitions, so there is always something fun to see or do. It’s also a great place to watch the sun as it sets!
The Wave House has become a “Sunday Funday” tradition for Pacific Beach and Mission Beach residents as well as CISL students. Have you been? Tell us about your experience on Facebook!
