Got plans to visit America’s Finest City? We’ve picked the top 3 spots in San Diego to capture thrilling photos and video while you cut through town on your Onewheel. Beautiful ocean views are never far away no matter where you are in San Diego. Make sure your Onewheel is fully charged before you hit the beach and the streets–there’s a ton to do in this town!
Powerhouse Park in Del Mar
Let’s face it, tourists are everywhere in San Diego but there are plenty of places favored by locals that see less tourist traffic. Powerhouse Park in Del Mar is one such location that locals love and vacationers often overlook. Not only can you enjoy everything the beach has to offer, the park comes with more amenities than are typically found at other scenic parks in San Diego, including restrooms, showers and an outdoor theater.
Onewheel enthusiasts will enjoy Powerhouse Park for its convenient location near the heart of Del Mar, and the pristine panoramic beach that backs up to grassy bluffs. It’s the perfect spot for Onewheel riders of all skill levels to test out different terrain.
Onewheel Terrain Tip: Avoid riding through surf or heavily wet sand. Water can damage or destroy your Onewheel, and damp sand can cause your Onewheel to become lodged in ruts and sinkholes. Wear a helmet and stay on compact sand and the grassy areas of Powerhouse Park.
History buffs will find Powerhouse’s past interesting, as well. The name comes from the nearby powerhouse that was utilized in the early 1900s.
To enter Powerhouse Park, get onto Coast Blvd from 15th St and travel north until you reach the entrance. Looking for more beach time? Head south from Powerhouse to Seagrove Park, just minutes away.
Sunset Cliffs Natural Park in Point Loma
Looking for a jaw dropping backdrop for your next stream? Point Loma has you covered. Sunset Cliffs Natural Park borders the Point Loma peninsula’s western shore and is located just a short drive west of downtown San Diego. The park encompasses 68 acres with just under two miles of shoreline–more space than you could ever possibly explore on your Onewheel! You could easily make a day out of Sunset Cliffs and the iconic urban scenery of Point Loma.
Sunset Cliffs offers slightly more challenging terrain than the average paved path. Novice Onewheel riders may want to touch up their skills before taking on the unpaved paths that cut through the park. A Onewheel XR will be the most capable at managing the Sunset Cliff terrain.
Much of the charm of this park comes from the rugged, natural landscape unobstructed by man-made features. Sunset Cliffs is without a doubt the best place to take coastal photos or video while riding your Onewheel. Consider packing a drone to capture the incredible panoramic views from the cliffs. The views are breathtaking, and the park is perfect for catching one of a kind photos of the beach, surfers, and maybe even a whale or two!
There are a few routes into Sunset Cliffs. The Ladera Street entrance is one of the easier ways to the park. Take I-8 west until you reach the end, then follow Sunset Cliffs Blvd through Ocean Beach to the cliffs and Ladera Street.
Embarcadero Marina Park
If downtown scenery is more your style consider riding over to Embarcadero Marina Park. Embarcadero Marina Park is split into two regions: North and South. Embarcadero Marina Park South is the downtown hotspot with a vibrant mix of scenic oceanfront and downtown skyline.
This dog-friendly park offers numerous opportunities to capture exciting footage of your Onewheel excursion, with a healthy mix of scenic ocean views and bustling downtown skyscapes. Depending on the time of year you may even catch one of the concerts held at the outdoor venue located on the grounds.
After you get your fill of everything the Park has to offer, float over to the nearby San Diego Convention Center for some awesome night time city shots. Cruise your Pint or XR just north of the convention center to find yourself in downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter where you’ll find a bar, nightclub or restaurant on every street corner.
The Gaslamp Quarter gets its name from a time in the mid 1860s when gas-powered lamps lined the streets. Today, this neighborhood is home to some of the best food and drink in San Diego. As you ride through on your Onewheel, be sure to grab some shots of the historic Victorian architecture that looks particularly interesting at night.
Keep an eye on your charge–there’s so much to explore in downtown San Diego that you might lose track of time.
