Visitor Information

San Diego Central gleams and glistens with new high rises and towers.  It also has a number of carefully restored vintage buildings notable for their intricate facades and window treatments.  The mix of old and new gives downtown its unique character and remarkable skyline.  Facing the bay, San Diego Central overlooks a busy Embarcadaro, the airport and an ever changing parade of navy, civilian ships and pleasure craft. 

Since Lindbergh Field, San Diego's airport, is five minutes from downtown, visitors are already close to hotels and the attractions of Balboa Park when they land.  The Convention Center sits on the edge of the bay under a dramatic roof of sails.  The Gaslamp is steps away and offers a variegated mix of restaurants and nightlife.  Many of San Diego Central's vintage buildings are located here and walking this district is an architectural feast.
