Whenever we are in the La Jolla area we make a point of stopping at the Torrey Pines Glider Port. The scenery is breathtaking. Watching the gliders go by or riding in them is both peaceful and incredible at the same time. Watching is free!

Wow, I can't really tell you what it's like to fly cause... I didn't do it... Look like a fantastic thing to do for other people... I just liked to watch and imagine what it would be like flying off a cliff. Fantastic.

During the week parking your car is no problem and also free. One can watch the colorful paragliders and model sailplanes using the slope lift of the cliffs to stay up as long as the pilots want. There is a constant taking off for flight...More

I would agree with Rich G.. we had no problems staying in the parking area during our visit. I would say there were 15 camper/motorhomes there the night we stayed
