San Diego’s Seaport Village – Under the Sun, Next to the Bay
Four miles of cobblestone pathways bordered by ponds, fountains, and greenery, Seaport Village provides a great waterfront destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. The Village is home to buildings of varying architectural styles, from Victorian to traditional Mexican. The boardwalk at Seaport Village is not designed for cars, instead, 90,000 square feet of winding paths connect the various buildings. Opened in 1980, Seaport Village includes 54 one-of-a-kind shops, 13 causal dining eateries and 4 fine dining restaurants.
Seaport Village has monthly calendar features with live musical entertainment, street performers and artisans, and an antique carousel with hand-carved animals by Charles Loof.
This area was historically know as Punta de los Muertos, “Point of the Dead,” where in 1982, the Spanish buried those who had died of scurvy. Later, the area was a railroad yard where goods and products were unloaded from ships and reloaded to trains for shipment. Seaport Village was then created in 1978 and opened in 1980 to become the San Diego tourist site and local attraction it is today.
Conveniently located downtown by the San Diego Bay and 5 minutes away from the airport by car, Seaport Village is great for shopping, dining or just walking around and exploring. The breath-taking panoramic views of the San Diego Bay are enough to make the destination worthy of an afternoon, or two!
