With about seventy miles of coastline, San Diego County has many beach communities. My favorite is probably Ocean Beach, an eclectic community that seems to enjoy being a little different from other beach communities; some call it the Haight-Ashbury of San Diego. Alternative lifestyles. A college town without a college. A main street that used to run right into the ocean until street paving became the norm. The locals don’t even call it Ocean Beach; it’s simply OB.
A couple of years ago Starbucks wanted to open a store. The community went berserk, although some might say that the community was already berserk. Starbucks might be the only nationwide chain that has a main street presence in the community. No McDonald’s, no Burger King, no Wendy’s…. Jack in the Box just barely got into Ocean Beach by a couple of blocks, but that might be because they are headquartered right here in San Diego!
