The Old Town Trolley Tour is a hop on, hop off tour with over 10 stops around the city. The driver acts as a tour guide, providing interesting details about San Diego as he or she drove us around the city. We took the whole tour without hopping off, which took about two hours. After we got done with the loop, we discussed which stops made us most interested to come back. These were our favorites of the day:
I would love to spend a day or two exploring Coronado’s cute shops, restaurants, art galleries, and the beautiful Coronado Beach. With its gorgeous water and beautiful sand, I can see why Coronado Beach has been voted as one of the best beaches in America. The bridge from San Diego to Coronado is not fun for those of us who hate heights, but the views of San Diego are worth a peek.
As we passed the Victorian-style buildings in the Gaslamp Quarter, I thought it would be fun to spend a day exploring the area. I would love to take the Gaslamp Quarter Walking Tour to learn about San Diego during the 1800s.
I love the Spanish style of the buildings almost as much as all of the museum options. We spent most of our time at Balboa Park the next day at the San Diego Zoo, but I would love to visit the San Diego Natural History Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Japanese Friendship Garden, and the Museum of Photographic Arts.
