Fun to saunter through
Sep 2021
Lots of stores and "museums," often just stores. Some places did have historical significance. The blacksmith shop was particularly fun. We wanted a light lunch, but couldn't find an appropriate restaurant.

Dia de Los Muertes
Oct 2021 • Friends
We visited during Dia de Los Muertes month and so glad we did! The calaveras were so unique and pretty. It’s not a long strip but a lot of stores and museums to see. We enjoyed looking at all the stores and had lunch. We spent about 3.5-hrs here without going to museums. Parking was a little hard to find a spot on a Sat afternoon but patience will pay off.

Exploiting Historic & Cultural Sites Once Again
Sep 2021
It was really confusing getting around and locating any of the historic sites in Old Town.

Sadly, the commercial properties selling trinkets and such made the historic buildings "disappear" from prominence. This is such a loss. When will we stop spoiling historic sites by placing profit over historic & cultural value?

Nice and free
Sep 2021
This is a nice enough attraction, giving you the feel of what the colonial town may have looked like a couple of centuries ago. Free, too. Unfortunately, only one of its dozen small museum exhibits was open on the day of our visit. Plenty of attractive artisanal shops and occasional entertainment compensated for that a bit. There was also a weekend street market on a nearby street (nothing too big or fancy).

Back to Old Town San Diego
May 2021
Have visited this are several time. Old town mellows and seems to be well maintained with lots of things to see and doo=.

Weekends are very crowded with extra things bing accomplished, do not want the crowds - go during the week. This is history of California, Mexico and San Diego.

Visited actually by mistake but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of shops, restaurants and museums. Since my wife is not interested in museums, we mostly visited their shops but I probably would have liked the museums as well. Seemed to be ample parking.

A fun day ...
Jul 2021
It was a neat place .... To me it is fun to see humble beginnings of major cities ... I loved that most of the buildings are authentic and were there from the start.
