The history of Seaport Village dates back to the Spanish expedition of 1782. Once an area filled with trains and ships transporting cargo to the East, it is now a 14 acre waterfront shopping, dining and entertainment complex. With over 4 miles of cobblestone pathways, a 1895 antique carousel, and shops that continue to make handmade gifts mimicking those of the early 1900’s, the area embodies years of history in a gorgeous waterfront setting. Hotels near Seaport Village share the convenient downtown location, seaside charm and historic backdrop for your San Diego vacation.
The Gaslamp Quarter is listed on the National Register of historic places and is a popular destination for vacationers. Once an area that was in decline and redeveloped in the early 1980’s, the success and liveliness of the area was not only restored but preserved. This seven block area is overflowing with bars, lounges, eateries and entertainment venues. The constant hustle and bustle of the area produces an energetic atmosphere that you can’t help but want to be a part of.
In the early 1900’s when San Francisco’s Italian fishing families migrated here following the hurricane of 1906, Little Italy was born. The area became the new home to Italian culture through restaurants, family owned shops and art. Since then, the neighborhood has been restored and is laid out in a way to encourage visitors to roam through the streets radiating with Italian tradition. For an authentic Italian meal and an experience that can only be compared with that of an actual trip to Italy, immerse yourself in Little Italy’s charm.
