A hub for history, restaurants, and shopping.

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is full of rich history and entertainment. The park features many preserved historic buildings and museums that commemorate the early days of San Diego from 1820-1870. Some of the historic sites include Heritage Park Victorian Village with 7 restored and relocated Victorian homes as well as San Diego’s first synagogue, the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Residio Park, the first San Diego Mission on Prisidio Hill just outside of Old Town, the Mormon Battalion Historic Site, which offers an interactive and entertaining guided tour complete with gold panning, the San Diego Sheriff's Museum, the Wells Fargo Museum, the first Brick Courthouse Museum, Seeley Stable Museum, the Whaley House which is the number one most haunted house in the United States, and much much more.

If museums and history aren’t your thing, there’s more to do in Old Town. There are numerous shops and fantastic restaurants with traditional Mexican cuisine scattered throughout Old Town. Visit Bazaar Del Mundo with 8 unique shops with internationally inspired treasures or Fiesta De Reyes with live music, outdoor dining, folkloric dancing and 19 unique shops. Don’t have time to stop for lunch? Grab some fresh, delicious, homemade tortillas right off the sidewalk grill at Cafe Coyote on your way. 

Plan your visit around one of Old Town’s annual events like the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta which is a three day non-stop music and live entertainment festival, or Dia de los Muertos to celebrate the history and culture of San Diego. The Historic Old Town 4th of July is a celebration that’s fun for the whole family. There is a parade, hands on crafts and activities reflecting early San Diego, and egg toss and cherry pit spitting contests with handmade ribbon prizes. Most of the Old Town attractions are free admission. There are 9 different hotels around Old Town available for those wanting to stay in the area.
