Popular San Diego Trolley Destinations


Vacationing on a budget is not always easy. Fortunately, if you are planning a trip to San Diego, there are many ways to save. One of the best ways to save is to take advantage of San Diego’s public transportation system. Visitors who stay at a centrally located hotel such as the Pacific Inn in Downtown San Diego have easy access to the bus and trolley. With public transportation, vacationers can save and travel through the city as locals do.

The trolley in particular is a great resource for vacationers who do not have a car. The San Diego Trolley system has three lines (Blue, Orange and Green) and 53 stations throughout various parts of the city. Fares range from one dollar and fifty cents to three dollars one way. Full day passes are also available for unlimited trolley rides for a single flat rate. The following are a few popular San Diego Trolley destinations that visitors will love:

Just less than a mile south is the Historic USS Midway.  This floating city is one of the United States longest serving Aircraft Carrier. Built in 1945 it served until it was decommissioned in 1992, since then it has been docked at its current location. Its museum has been open to the public since 2004 and is one of the world’s most visited ship museums.

Located about a quarter of a mile away from our property is the County Center/Little Italy Trolley Station.  From here you can travel all over San Diego.  An unlimited day pass costs only $5.00 with use of public busses as well.  The great thing about this is within minutes you can be downtown near the historic Gaslamp Quarter and Convention Center or Old Town, as well as a few different malls and Qualcomm Stadium.  All of this within steps of the trolley.

Here are some of the historic regions of San Diego that you should check out during your stay:

Balboa Park

The park which began as 1400 acres of land set aside in 1868 by San Diego civic leaders has evolved into a section of San Diego filled with history and culture.  The park features a dozen restaurants and cafes, 15 museums and the San Diego Zoo.  The area, always kept in pristine condition, touts over 20 different gardens and a maze of trails surrounded by magnificent landscaping. Perfect for a full day of outdoor activities, you must take a trip to Balboa Park and embrace its beauty.

Seaport Village

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 historicbackdrop for your San Diego vacation.

Gaslamp Quarter

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.

Little Italy

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.

Downtown San Diego is a destination that allows you to explore and appreciate the undeniable history the city possesses.  Contact us at 1-800-571-2933 today for available rooms and rates and start planning your vacation to sunny San Diego.
