San Diego Bay Walk, San Diego

(650+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Take an easy walk that winds through downtown and the city's waterfront area along San Diego Bay Walk. The scenic stroll offers a taste of the city's mix of stunning nature and urban edge. Begin a self-guided tour of the bay at Broadway Pier (where you can also stock up on gifts at the souvenir shops). Head north to find the terminal where most cruise ships launch, surrounded by fish shops and restaurants. Here, consider taking a tour of the Star of India, a mast ship from 1863. Heading south from Broadway Pier, you come across Navy Pier, where Navy ships often dock and welcome visitors on free tours. Take a look at our San Diego family vacation planner to schedule your visit to San Diego Bay Walk and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Nice walk to avoid the main streets, lots of cute shopping stores at the end which I enjoyed. Entertaining for people watching, good way to get from one end to the other.  more »
