Old Fashioned Boardwalk Fun At Belmont Park
San Diego

Belmont Park San Diego is located right at Mission Beach, close to Mission Bay. It's kind of like a traditional amusement park along the lines of Pacific Park at the Santa Monica Pier or the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

If the kids happen to need yet another thing to do on their San Diego beach vacation, no worries, take them to Belmont Park. There are lots of rides, arcade games and food items to keep them entertained for awhile.
