All reviews mexican food fiesta de reyes whaley house candy store lots of shops few hours lots of history great place to visit walk around great history spend an afternoon couple of hours blacksmith schoolhouse souvenirs margaritas birthplace
As far as historic towns go, sue this fits the bill. But, it is becoming very touristy with a lot of tacky stores, and not period stores like you would hope for. Went to the blacksmith, and would have loved to see more work being...More
Both charming and educational at the same time. There are many shops, numerous restaurants, historical exhibits and plenty to do for all ages. One could spend the whole day here. It is also a stop on the Historical Hop on Hop Off trolley tour. I...More
Lots of historic buildings to tour and some have shops with merchandise for sale. Interesting to read the history of each. People were wearing period costumes and performing blacksmith skills, etc.
Large adobe villa and fun outdoor eateries add to the options. No admission charge.
I live in San Diego now but didn’t always. So whenever friends or family come to visit, we must go to Old Town. From the fun Trolley Tour to the yummy steak at Old Town Cafe or the great prices on lots of souvenirs, Old...More
In addition to the history of the town and a feel for San Diego as was settled, the town has many great places to eat. The fare is mostly Mexican Food but with a unique San Diego flavor. The walking is easy and never too...More

Hope you are still looking for advice as this is a bit late. San Diego is relatively small, so you can see a lot. Definitely see Coronado Island and Hotel del Coronado as well as the beach. Old Town is a must as is Balboa Park. Balboa Park can be a day-long deal. Lots to see there: artist village, Houses of Pacific Relations (different countries) etc.. The San Diego Zoo is fabulous and is right next to Palbos Park's
Old Town has great Mexican restaurants and some great shopping.
I also recommend a trolley tour.

If you only have 3 full days, I'd recommend maybe 2 of the parks and a day to sightsee or go on the Harbour Excursion. Going to a park can take up the whole day, at least if you've never been there, and you want to see most of the park. I'd recommend Legoland for your little one and then chose between the Zoo and Seaworld for your other park day. If you go to the Zoo, you could still see some of Balboa Park as they are next to each other. The Zoo if located in Balboa Park. If you go to...More

2 days in San Diego; need some advice! (16 Replies)
Hey all, me, my girlfriend, and my 2 friends will be staying in San Diego for 2 days during Nov. 2018. We would like to go "USS Midway Museum", "Old Town State Historic Park", "Seaport Village". Is it good to visit? Also, what should we do at nigh time, if we're not big interest on night club/bar. Meanwhile, any good restaurant/foods we must to go for? Thank you in advance for all your suggestions! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

Midway and Seaport Village are close to each other. You can walk through and see the shops, cafes. We had a good dinner recently (June) at Seasons 52. Old Town would be a good place to go the second day. We like El Agave for upscale Mexican There are other good family friendly places for dinner.

mission hill rental (2 Replies)
Hi, I'm looking at a VRBO rental on Presidio Drive in Mission Hill. Is that a good neighborhood, relatively near restaurants and accessible to the beach (I know we will have to drive to the beach)?From the map it looks like it's near Old Town San Diego State Historic park. Thanks!

IF you put the location of the rental into Google and click on the map you can use the "search nearby" function to see restaurants. I believe it is a road that goes up a hill and I don't think there are restaurants right there in walking distance. I am originally from NYC but cannot think of a NYC neighborhood that would compare to it since most of the boroughs are not hilly. It would be like a residential area of Staten Island or Brooklyn if there was a hill in the middle of it.
