About Us

PACIFIC believes San Diego is the coolest city in the country. The print publication was first published as Pacific Beach Magazine in January 2007. In November 2016, PACIFIC merged with DiscoverSD.com to improve the lives of America's Finest citizens by connecting them with the best the city has to offer — via print, mobile, email, online, social media, Street Team and events.
