Looking for your own piece of paradise can be a tricky proposition. If you think of California as being synonymous with paradise, the good news is you are exactly right, the bad news is a whole lot of others agree with you.

About Solana Beach
With its impressive collection of silky-smooth sandy beaches, fantastic festivals, terrific local restaurants, and combination of nightlife, golf courses, and pristine parks, it is hard to believe it is such a well-kept secret. Solana Beach has a quaint and friendly population of about 13,000, and sits on the north coast of San Diego county, where you would be hard-pressed to find better weather. The area gets about 3,000 hours of west coast sunshine on average, and temperature ranges from low 70s in the summer to 60s in the winter.
What to Do in Solana Beach
The top thing to do in small beach town is almost always go to the beach, and Solana Beach is no exception, the deservingly popular Fletcher Cove Park is complete with big sandy areas, easy access, and classically scenic cliffs of California on either side that break the west coast waves creating a safe and serene spot to jump in and soak up some sun.
The climate provides good wine weather year round and as a result the area has an impressive selection of wineries. There is also a lovely assortment of galleries, boutiques, art shops, and shopping to be done at the Cedros Design District. The locals love the Belly Up Tavern, a small music venue that manages to consistently bring its concert-goers within 20-30 feet of nationally touring artists. The weather and the wine mean that sitting on the patio or the balcony with a cool breeze, sipping an aromatic glass of red wine, and watching the sun setting on the western edge of the world will never get ruled out, be it January or July.
What to Eat
Solana Beach will not disappoint the pallet, either. The small town has a surprising selection of excellent restaurants, cafes, and bars. The gem of the town is The Fish Market, whose come-as-you-are California vibe serves as a contrast with the excellent quality of the fresh seafood served up daily and often- reservations are recommended. Locals love Pizza Port on Solana Beach for a people-pleasing pizza feast. The cafes and brunch eateries are also outstanding, with the likes of the Lockwood Table Cafe and Claires on Cedros taking the figurative cake while serving their quite literally famous Claircakes.
