There is so much to see and explore in old town. It is one of my favorite areas in San Diego to check out. Many options for food, shopping, historical info & buildings. It’s a beautiful place worth checking out.

My family walked around while waiting for our table at a restaurant. Very cute and interesting. Most buildings were closed during our visit, but would love to return when it's open.
