Overview

Vintage San Diego travel advertisements, postcards and photographs from the early 1900s to the present extol the virtues of San Diego: its perfect sun, surf, and sand. Take a virtual tour of six beach areas in San Diego to see sandstone cliffs and foaming surf, and stroll pristine seashores and bustling boardwalks. Among the places highlighted are La Jolla Cove Park, which served as an inspiration to the art work of Dr. Seuss, and Mission Beach, where the thrill of the chaos roller coaster awaits. Also, see Coronado, where the ghost of Kate Morgan is said to haunt the famed Del Mar Hotel, immortalized by Bing Crosby in the song "Where the turf meets the surf."
