Full description
Explore San Diego with its beautiful sun-soaked beaches and fascinating cultural heritage. Take a walk with an expert guide to Santa Fe Depot, US Grant Hotel, Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park, Seaport Village, and USS Midway Museum. Begin the walking tour at the Santa Fe Depot, an elegant railroad station built for the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. Renowned for its soaring towers and tiled domes, this reminder of California's Spanish heritage reflects the Colonial Revival architectural style. Admire the redwood beam ceilings hung with bronze chandeliers. Learn about the history of the indigenous Kumeyaay peoples and Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo's claim of San Diego Bay's discovery, some 200 years before Europeans settled the area. Head to your next stop, the US Grant Hotel, a building of Art Deco glamor that has welcomed guests for over 100 years. Famed as a Prohibition-era speakeasy, the lobby is adorned with Empire-era furnishings that reflect the style of Ulysses S. Grant Jr., who built the hotel to honor his father, the 18th president. Continue to the Gaslamp Quarter, where a buzzing collection of tequila bars, taco restaurants and funk boutiques form the city’s urban playground. Next, pass by Petco Park, the sporting home of the San Diego Padres, before heading to the many eateries at Seaport Village for lunch by the picturesque century-old harborside. End the tour at the USS Midway Museum. Say goodbye to your guide and climb aboard this former US Navy aircraft carrier for a self-guided audio discovery of the life of an enlisted sailor.
