Sorrento Valley Activities

Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve (meaning little cliffs) offers great trails for jogging, hiking and riding for the whole family. It encompasses some 4,000 acres of both Penasquitos and Lopez Canyons.

There are several entertainment facilities in and around neighborhoods surrounding Sorrento Valley, including shopping centers, movie theaters and restaurant complexes. It is home to Sorrento Valley Racquetball & Fitness Center, San Diego’s premier racquetball club. A popular shopping center in the area is newly renovated Westfield (UTC) with more than 150 stores, specialty shops, an ice-skating rink, and a new movie theater.

The community’s proximity to downtown San Diego provides residents with easy access to the region’s highways, roadways, and rail systems. The Del Mar Racetrack and the Del Mar Fairgrounds are popular entertainment spots, and the Del Mar and La Jolla beaches offer a variety of water and beach sports.
