SOLANA BEACH — Strap on your favorite walking shoes and see the sites of Solana Beach. WalkSanDiego invites the community to the Solana Beach Walk starting at 9 a.m. Dec. 8. Walkers will gather at Coast Highway 101 and Via de la Valle
 and walk through Solana Beach, discovering the history of the area as the walk takes you through the Cedros Design District, Highway 101 corridor, and Fletcher Cove. The event will collect data about the walkability of the community.The walk will be about three miles on mostly flat terrain. Cost is $5. Visit walksandiego.org for more information and check it Dec. 7 for any last-minute changes.
