Rooftop recreation

Balboa Island’s third-floor rooftop deck lets you work up an appetite at the foosball table, then gather around the al fresco dinner table to enjoy a meal prepped in the open-air kitchen.

Alpine adventure

It’s easy to make the most of outdoor living year-round in Mountainside. After a day on the trails or the slopes, you can sink into the relaxing hot tub and treat yourself to some toasted s’mores around the fire pit.
