The combination of the Pacific fleet, tourism, hi-tech industries, natural beauty and superb climate, it is all there when you take a stroll on the Bay walk. It was relatively easy to park the car at a walking distance. We enjoyed the weather, the relaxed people strolling on the walk, and watching all kinds of boats and ships. As for... More

Historical boats to look at and tour, plus yahts and smaller boats. Always a beautiful breeze. Nicely paved. I enjoyed walking along the bay on this walk.

I loved the city of San Diego, specially the bay, because of the nice weather, the nice culture of the people. In the case of the bay, its a beautiful view, with many attractions, like a world war II boat.

Our hotel was here and it's a nice walk along the water. Many expensive boats parked here to look at. Several restaurants and small shops to browse in. Only thing I didn't like is during the day some people set up tables selling things and lots of psychic readings kind of carnival-like.

This walk is a very relaxing and serene place to enjoy the water sights and people. It gets a little crowded around lunch time but is still a fun place to be. Take the guided 2 hr. tour and learn all the history of this great place!

The walk along the bay is so pretty! We have lived here for years and take this walk often, however we recently took a walking tour there and around Gaslamp... We learned history, fun stories of what we saw... I recommend this walk with a guide if coming from out of town :) or if your local too!

The two hour tour of the harbor was great . We sat outside upstairs . The tour guide was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the naval shipyards. We were a bit disappointed with the seals. They are much more exciting to watch on the buoys as apprised to the docks. Having a bar and food station was great!

A nice area to take a stroll. Beautiful scenery. The Star of India, The Maritime Museum and the USS Midway are just a couple of attractions located on the Bay Walk. The area is under development, so you need to look beyond the construction. Despite the construction, it is a lovely area. I rate it a 3 because of the... More

I got off bus 992 to take a walk on Harbor Drive. Saw that one can view the museums, take a ferry to Coronado, a whale watching cruise, or keep on walking to Seaport Village. There is also a visitor information booth. Did not go to Seaport Village because I was running short of time. If I lived here again,... More
