Weekend in San Diego: Hanging in Old Town

Something I discovered long ago on the first trip to San Diego is that I love chilling in Old Town. Old Town San Diego is considered the birthplace of California. In 1769, Old Town was created as California's first settlement. While this place is a good spot for learning California history, I come for the vibe. This is where I had my first sip of Mexican chocolate drink and had one of the best tamales I had ever eaten.

This time around, we even sampled gourmet olive oil in addition to walking around and browsing at the many stores. If you have time, I suggest spending it in Old Town. Incredible food and great shopping and some history lessons sprinkled in there too.

A great spot for photography enthusiasts too.

  1. Loved this ... been too long since we’ve been in SCal, and back then oldtown San Diego was a favorite. I scrolled to see if you ate at a favorite Mexican Restaurant that I remember clearly...all but the name. My mouth is watering just thinking of it.
