California sunsets are something to behold, so before the summer night closes in we’ll head to the end of the Pier for a mesmerizing sunset over the Pacific Ocean. We’ll take you to our favorite local dive bars and breweries. The first bar, Blackies by the Sea, is already operating since 1957 and is a local legend! After we enjoyed a micro-brewed beer we visit Chihuahua Cerveza, a modern brewery, that gives us the opportunity to try different flavors of their signature beer, this varies from a coffee infused beer till rose beer. We’ll Uber our way over to the docks and catch a pedestrian ferry out to lively Balboa Island. We stroll along the waterfront to the Village Inn. Your tour will end here. Your host will be very happy to make recommendations for further exploring Balboa Island tonight and Orange County tomorrow and how to return to the tour start if needed. Your host will offer an alternative route when the Village Inn is closed or has limited activity.
