Our family of 5 took an afternoon and rode the trolley, my husband especially loved it because he could look around instead of watching the road. We got on at the zoo because its easy to find and lots of parking. We got off at Old town which is a great place to shop for soveneirs and then again at Midway museum which was very educational and something different to do, my guys loved looking at all the differnt nooks and cranny on the ship and the planes and coppers above, then we got off at Seaport Village which was very beautiful and peaceful. We ran out of time and was able to stop at any of the other stops but got a good feel of where everything was and the next day drove on our own to a few of the other places to sightsee. This is a great way to get a tast of where everything is and what the city offers for tourists and entertainment.
The Old Town Trolley is a good way to get an overall tour of the city. The drivers/tour guides are informative and share little known facts about the city.
What's great about the trolley is it stops at numerous tourist attractions, such as Balboa Park, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Coronado. The trolley allows you to hop on/off at whatever stop you want. This allows you to spend added time sightseeing the spots that you're interested in.
The trolley runs throughout the day so you're not pressed for time and can sightsee at your leisure. The Old Town Trolley is a must-do for anyone visiting San Diego.
