  • Awesome private collection of old maps. A great place to visit!
  • This is a hidden gem inside of this building. It's a free museum with so much history. I could say here for hours looking at these maps.
  • Original maps dating from the middle ages at the beginning of the 20th century. All local global. Free entrance with accepted contribution. Very nice collection.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation.
