Old Town


Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, located in the Old Town neighborhood of San DiegoCalifornia, is a state protected historical park in San Diego. It commemorates the early days of the town of San Diego and includes many historic buildings from the period 1820 to 1870. The park was established in 1968.[2] In 2005 and 2006, California State Parks listed Old Town San Diego as the most visited state park in California.

Five original adobes are part of the complex, which includes shops, restaurants and museums. Other historic buildings include a schoolhouse, a blacksmith shop, San Diego's first newspaper office, a cigar and pipe store, houses and gardens, and a stable with a carriage collection. There are also stores, with local artisans demonstrating their craft. There is no charge to enter the state park or any of its museums.

But its also a bit of a tourist trap.
