Description of Local Area

AVA is located in the heart of Pacific Beach overlooking San Diego’s Mission Bay. The complex’s central location gives students access to nearby beaches, water-sport facilities, and an array of local bars and restaurants. One of Pacific Beach’s highlights is its coastline of pristine, white-sand beaches outlined by a bustling boardwalk and budget-friendly eateries. The boardwalk is typically filled with pedestrians, cyclists, rollerbladers, and beachgoers, and you can find an assortment of activities any day of the week, ranging from surf contests to festivals and concerts.

PB (local speak for “Pacific Beach”) is one of San Diego’s best areas for nightlife. As the sun goes down, PB changes from hazy beach town to bright and bustling bar scene. Dancing, live music, and San Diego’s hottest beach clubs are all within walking distance from the beach and the AVA complex. Commuters, enjoy access to Mission Valley, Fashion Valley, the San Diego Freeway (I-5), Ocean Beach Freeway (I-8), La Jolla, Sea World, and the San Diego International Airport. Students taking public transportation can catch the main bus #30 into La Jolla—the nearest stop is just 10 minutes’ walking
