"Ocean Beach, known locally as O.B., is a bohemian neighborhood with an eclectic vibe. Marks says it reminds him of the hippie days of the 1960s. 'It's a really colorful place to go and explore,' he notes.
"Mark Peak, chief concierge at The US Grant, says O.B., located just south of Mission Bay, makes him think of the Beach Boys and is a popular spot for surfers to catch some waves. The pier is a must-see: It is one of the longest piers in Southern California, stretching almost a half-mile into the water.
"Afterward, stop by Wonderland Ocean Pub for craft cocktails and tacos with an ocean view, or make your way to Pizza Port for pizza and beer."
