If you were to close your eyes and imagine you have booked your Golf Vacation Packages to San Diego through Sonoran Suites, chances are the first image that comes to mind is of the ocean and watching the waves wash onto the beach. You might imagine a game of beach volleyball, sun bathers laid out on towels, or the lifeguard sitting up on their tower with a zinc covered nose. Next you might think about the pier and the boardwalk, people riding their bikes and skateboards from end to end, and shops selling everything you could possibly need to make your beach vacation go smoothly. The point here is that in San Diego the beach is not just part of the terrain it’s a way of life.
