Dubbed the 'Kitty Hawk of the West', this historic glider airport has been in near constant use since 1930. Access is free, and you don't even need to fly to enjoy a day out here. Many content themselves in two other ways. The first is dining at the the Cliff Hanger Cafe; locals like to say it's the best place for sandwich with a view. Dolphins and whales can sometimes be seen from the cliffs. The second is to head down to the nearby Black Beach to watch others in flight. There is one runway from the ocean cliffs at Torrey Pines where people can take off. Food and drinks can be had at. Saturday evenings in April are a time for barbeque and live music.
The The Torrey Pines Gliderport does offer lessons though, though the prices can be steep.
