San Diego’s Thriving Urban Center

Just minutes from the airport, San Diego’s vibrant downtown area has no shortage of walkable fun and excitement. An ever-changing skyline along the San Diego Bay, San Diego’s downtown offers green space like Waterfront Park, well-known attractions such as USS Midway, and an exciting nightlife in the Gaslamp Quarter.

The downtown scene in San Diego is always alive and the laid-back vibe still holds strong any time of day. Petco Park, home to the San Diego Padres is one of the most unique baseball parks in the US, featuring local brews and dining options. Take in the views from one of the many rooftop lounges or find a hidden speakeasy behind a secret doorway. Start a self-guided walking tour at the Broadway Pier and find yourself amongst the yachts docked at the downtown Marina. Embarcadero Marina Park thrives with seasonal events along the water.

Just west of downtown, Point Loma, Harbor Island, and Shelter Island neighborhoods offer great restaurants, activities, a variety of accommodations and stunning views of San Diego’s skyline. For incredible panoramic ocean views, venture to Sunset Cliffs Natural Park. Also nearby is Liberty Station, home to a number of local artist galleries and a public market full of dining options, pop up dinners, and entertainment.
