If you are visiting San Diego you must go and take a walk or jog at the embarcadero. Lovely sights of the pacific. Sometimes they have festivals ( the naval festival, sand sculptures and more).

A wonderful venue, excellent catering phenomenal crew with golf carts to help older guests, great sound. The only downside were the porta pottys. They did not have lights in the potty so you had to use your camera to light the area. I was terrified that I would lose my IPhone 5 into the muck. The hand washing station was... More

This extension of the Embarcadero adjoins Seaport Village, and is a restful place to stroll or people-watch while taking a break from the presentations at a conference at the nearby San Diego Convention Center. (At least, that's the use I make of it!) On any day you might spot a rock balancer at work (see the accompanying photo), or just... More

Really nice waterfront walk with many restuarants and attractions. You seem to be able to walk for ever from the Hilton at the Convention Centre all the way passed the airport and beyond. Check out the parks near USS Midway with the Bob Hope memorial and the USN memorials to those lost at sea. Really easy place to lose a... More

I love being anywhere near water. The port of San Diego has a Wonderful view And has several cruise ships, restaurants, and a military ship, which is now a museum. My family and I had a nice stroll on the port.

Spend some time walking along the water. We did this after we spent some time on the USS MIdway. People watching was fun. Some homeless but they did not beg or bother us at all. Seaport Village was nice. Beautiful views of the water. Very peacful and serene. Places to park for a fee.

Lots to see walking around the Embarcadero. Anthony's Fish Grotto is there, Star of India ship and other antique ships there, sculptures, people watching and great water views.

Although this is a "walking tour," it is filled with great sight, excitement and lots of "off the walking path" activities. You got cash? Improve your rating!

We take the ferry over from Coronado Ferry Landing in the AM and grab a bagel at Bruegger's and bike down along the water. You have to walk your bike by Seaport Village but, then bike again all the way down to the Hilton. I love the pelicans at the pier by the Summer Concert Series. I miss the art... More

What with all the cruise ships docking in San Diego, this place can get really crowded. But--there's A LOT to see and do. Almost a must-see for tourists coming to San Diego.
