My name is Randy Chase.  I grew up in Imperial Beach and I am proud of that fact.  It was an amazing place to grow up in.  The Beaches.  The Sloughs.  The Pier.  The Jetties.  Silver Strand.  Palm Theater.  And much more….     I felt there was not a good place to document all of this and created this site for that purpose.  We also have a very active Facebook page called “You Know You Grew Up in Imperial Beach When.”  Please check it out.

I have moved away to a wonderful part of Tennessee where living is much cheaper, but I come back to visit often.  My mother and sister both live in Imperial Beach.  My sister is very active in local stuff.
