San Diego Old Town is a natural starting place for exploring the city. Dating back to 1769, this charming area is home to some of the city’s earliest buildings, in particular, the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park includes five original abodes, schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, and the city’s first newspaper office built between 1820 and 1870s by European settlers. Today, this area is the most visited state park in California. Travel north to Pacific Beach, where you’ll discover one of those picture-perfect Californian stretches that was made for sunbathing and swimming - you can even try your hand at surfing the gnarly waves. Then check out the boardwalk, which frames the waterfront, and is peppered with a excellent range of restaurants and trendy cafes. Once you're fed and watered, walk to Mission Boulevard, close to the beach, and home to boutiques, yoga studios, and more restaurants. It’s a great area to spend a chilled out day. When the sun sets, dine in Chula Vista where you can try some of the best Mexican food in the entire USA. Or head south to Little Italy, where you'll find upscale restaurants, cocktail bars, and sidewalk cafes. An evening stroll will take you to quaint piazzas and the lush Waterfront Park, where you’ll get stunning views of the bay.
