Estimated 1.1 million people visit San Diego beaches

Taking advantage of postcard-perfect weather, an estimated 1.1 million people visited San Diego’s beaches over the Labor Day weekend, authorities reported Tuesday.

Over the comparable three-day period in 2008, about 528,000 sun- and surf-lovers enjoyed the city’s waterfront parks, according to city officials.

From 7 a.m. Saturday through 9 p.m. Monday, San Diego police made a dozen arrests – two for felony crimes – and handed out 125 misdemeanor alcohol citations in the beach areas, SDPD Lt. Shelley Zimmerman said.
