Downtown, Chicano Park, Coronado
This San Diego sightseeing tour starts in the Gaslamp Quarter, the historic heart of the city, where the port once fed into 5th Ave. Learn about the early pioneers of the city, including the ladies of the evening who ran some of the most notorious brothels.
From there, head to Barrio Logan and stop at Chicano Park, home to one of the largest assemblages of public murals in North America, reflecting Chicano-Mexicano history. Learn how this park was saved by the residences of the neighborhood and how the paintings reflect Mexican heritage and freedom. Stop at a neighborhood bakery to taste the authentic pastries.
The sightseeing tour continues to the nation’s largest curving bridge and into Coronado, San Diego’s neighboring island and home to a U.S. naval base. Visit the iconic Hotel del Coronado and walk through the shops onto the beach. The tour finishes on the Bay Ferry for the best photo opportunities in the city.
Brewery Tour and Pizza
Sightseeing in San Diego isn’t complete without a visit to one of its many breweries. San Diego is known as the craft brewery capital of the nation. Heading to a brewery while visiting San Diego is not only necessary, but also expected if you want to get a real taste of the city. This tour takes you to a popular craft brewery where you will be greeted by a brewery representative.
