Fun place to visit. Lots of interesting shopping, restaurants and bars. Indoor and Outdoor seating available for meals. It's like stepping back in time. The area really has the feeling of Mexico. Old buildings and a museum to visit.

We loved Old Town. It was very unique. There are lots of little shops to purchase souvenirs and many places to learn about the history of San Diego. I definitely recommend eating at Casa De Reyes while you are there.

Old Town San Diego was very educational with its’ many museums, authentic buildings and sights. We did not get to see all of Old Town but several of the numerous restaurants and shops were visited. Parking was easy and free. Hope to visit again.

Must see with many restaurants with good Mexican food. Focal point for tours going to the Midway, Balboa Park and others. Many hotels where you can easily get transportation downtown.

The Old Town area seemed like a fun, interesting place to visit. We spent several hours there, but was overall disappointed. It was mostly touristy shops and left us disappointed. If you’re only in San Diego for a few days, you may want to skip...More

This is the second time I drop by Old Town. This time it seemed more Mexican with the fair and live Mexican shows at the plaza. Many historic landmarks were closed like the barn and the gem shop. But you can still imagine San Diego’s...More

Visit the Gaslight District, Balboa Park, Point Loma and Old Town. Lots of good beer and nightlife. Birch Scripps Aquarium is worth a drive. Go to Groupon and Local Flavor for major discounts on food & attractions. Parking... More
