Visitor Information

Old Town is the first site in California settled by Europeans. It was the center of San Diego until the 1860s, before downtown was developed. Old Town went into a century of decline until 1969, when the city’s bicentennial celebrations restored focus to the area. Now, the neighborhood is a popular destination for tourists, shoppers and diners. It also has about a dozen art galleries, nine hotels and several museums.

It comprises 230 acres and is bordered by Mission Hills to the east, Bankers Hill to the south, Interstate 5 to the west and Interstate 8 to the north. Old Town San Diego State Historic Park comprises five original adobes restored to how they would have looked in the 1800s, as well as shops, restaurants and museums.
