Ocean Beach Park has a lineup of af­ter-dark ac­tiv­i­ties that ri­val any Dis­ney ex­pe­ri­ence. Fifty acres filled with old world charm­promises a plethora of sum­mer sights and sounds.

“It’s an old-style ex­pe­ri­ence, a throw­back, not that dif­fer­ent from when it opened in 1940,” says park man­ager Dave Su­grue. “The most unique thing about it is the beach. It’s the num­ber one draw. We have a lot go­ing on here, but it’s a gor­geous beach and the ac­tiv­i­ties com­ple­ment the ‘sugar sand’ beach ex­pe­ri­ence.”
