Nice to see the roots of San Diego. I took the 11 am free history walking tour. Liked strolling around the shops, getting soft tacos for lunch, and ice cream and candy from one of the stores. I took the number 30 bus there from downtown San Diego and back. Short comfy ride.

For a first time visitor or seeking a special Mexican restaurant it seems like a OK place to hang. We did eat in a very good restaurant recommended by a local, but I would not want to spend an evening here. Souvenir shops galore, tours and many out of town visitors. I am not sure how authentic the area is... More

Old Town San Diego is a very historical place to visit. There are many locations to visit. There are many authentic Mexican restraunts to choose from. There are many old bulidings to tour, and a lot of little curio shops to purchase pottery, mexican articles , and clothing.
