Going to California: Seaport Village, San Diego

The most stunning views of the San Diego bay are from Seaport Village, San Diego's entertainment and shopping area, located 'blocks from downtown, miles from the chaos' (at Harbor Dr. and Pacific Hwy). This is one of the best ways to enjoy the city amazing feel for free, while being spoiled by the gentle breeze of Southern California.

Well, you should also be aware that other are spoiled by fortune - just have a look at the boats anchored in the harbor!

There are lots to do at the 14-acres Seaport Village, from simply strolling the Boardwalk or the manicured alleys to shopping for souvenirs or attending poetry readings at one of the inviting and well-stocked bookstores in the area. There are 50 stores and 17 restaurants, as well as a historic carousel, balloon artists, caricaturists, and face painters.


Cute little Seaport Village also offers free concerts in the East Plaza Gazebo every Sunday from 1 - 4 pm, besides the impromptu performances that take place every day around the Fountain or the Gazebo. This is also the place where Santa and the Easter Bunny usually gather the kids in San Diego. If you don't go there on any of this holidays, then you can still take a picture with the giant statue featuring the sailor and his sweetheart - which along with the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier are icons of San Diego's proud military heritage.


Open daily, from 10 am to 10 pm.
