Old Town San Diego
History, food and fun are all within easy walking distance of the Old Town. Father Serra established the first mission here more than 225 years ago; Kit Carson helped to raise the first American flag in 1846. Now there are 37 restaurants and entertainment is abundant with artisans, dancers, galleries, hotels, mariachis, professional theatre and shops. Most restaurants and shops accept major credit cards. You can access this area from Interstate-5 by taking the Old Town Avenue exit, driving east and turning left on San Diego Avenue.
I loved the atmoshphere at Old Town. It's fun and vibrant, but I was disappointed that I did not see any ghosts. The bartender at the Old Town Saloon said the best time to visit is during the winter...there's a better chance that ghosts will appear. Has anyone experience any paranormal activity at Old Town?

I went there in Halloween 1997 with my then fiance. My then fiance took me out on our Halloween date. Wow! Muesums and shops are fantastic. And restuarants, too. Saw an old building that Spanish residents used to be living in before Yankees moved in. Wow, very interesting history I ever heard. I am recommanding this to vacationing tourists.
This place is worth a few hours but it can get boring for the fellas. It's more a shopping area for tourists and it's geared torward the females. But check it out and you guys can get a drink at the bars there.
There is so much to do there and so much to see. I was for my birthday and i especially liked the resturants they have there...And all the amusing tours they have. Even a ghost tour trolley that took us all over San Diego showing us all the most scariest places around....Got to go there!!
It is old but not bored, nice town to visit for 1 day event, you can see some histry here, shop here and enjoy mexican food here, oh, don't miss the park at the end of the old town.
It would be great if we can see some more event here,
We stayed in Old Town for several days. Two of thosed days we didn't need to venture out and about San Diego because there was so much to see and do right in Old Town. The food is fantastic and the different stores and street vendors was so fun and a cultural exchange. If you love mexican food, a different kind of shopping, fun and music then take a trip to Old Town in San Diego, CA.
Old town was one of my favorite experiences in San Diego. There really was an air of times past. Home made tortillas, a haunted house, even an old school house have you thinking that you yourself are in San Diego when it first began.

A lot of San Diego's culture can be found in Old Town, which features both original structures from the 1800s as well as touristy shops.
