Old Town, San Diego
It was here in 1769 that Father Junipero Serra came to establish the very first of 21 missions as the cornerstone of California’s colonization. Today, Old Town San Diego preserves the rich cultural heritage that characterized San Diego during the period of 1821-1871 and offers more than 150 shops, award-winning restaurants, 17 museums, and historic sites that all reside just a short walk away from the San Diego Trolley Transit Center.
