Old Town San Diego Tour
“Old Meets New” Downtown + Old Town GoCar Tour
You will start in historic Little Italy that was home to the Italian community, and see how it evolved into the modern business and artistic community it is today. Make your way past the ships in the bay that explored the new world, or patrolled the waters in time of war, into the Gaslamp Quarter which was once San Diego’s red-light district and see how it got re-imagined into the social scene it is today. As you leave modern San Diego you will begin your tip into history as you make your way through beautiful Mission Hills, you will pass many houses and businesses 50 years old and some much older. Your jump into history will take you past Historic Fort Stockton, into Presidio Park where the old Spanish Mission used to stand, into Old Town San Diego where you can see how San Diego looked in the old west with its Spanish and American residents forming a thriving community. This tour is for anyone who wants to see how San Diego has changed over the years, but still stayed true its Military roots.
