Shop and dine at Seaport Village, a waterfront complex connected by 6km (4 mi) of cobblestone walking paths lined with ponds, fountains, and gardens. This village has 54 shops and galleries, 17 restaurants, and a slate boardwalk along the San Diego Bay. It was built in Victorian and traditional Mexican architectural styles over Punta de los Muertos, the location where the Spanish Expedition of 1782 buried victims of scurvy. Explore the specialty vendors, relax along the water, or take a ride on the center's antique carousal, which was built in 1895 and features hand carved animals.

  • It is a beautiful place and such a great idea to bring my BFF visiting from out or town on Labor Day weekend. It's also her birthday today so it made it extra special. I must say that I see many posts complaining about the parking, but it as just fine for us. $8 an hour without validation, $5 for the whole time with validation. I think that's plenty fair, especially considering that it is a tourist spot. >had a lovely time and so did my BFF.
  • Awesome area of San Diego. Nice breakfast restaurant behind the Hyatt that was reasonable and gave good sized portions. Nice relaxing area to waste away a day. Lots of shops to visit.
  • Parking here is a SCAM. Had nice dinner at Harbor House, and got parking ticket validated. When leaving, parking ticket machine said we owed $24 for our 2 hours!! With a car behind us, we had no choice but to pay the "ransom". Apparently this is a common problem. Of course no phone number for parking company is listed on lot. After we got home, called restaurant, who gave us number for parking security. That person said we should have contacted them before leaving, and implied it wouldn't be addressed unless we returned. What a shame - otherwise it's a nice spot.
  • Tis a tourist hotspot. Parking is Uber spendy, 32 bucks for us. Better to Uber there, I think. Lots of shops and great views of the harbor, great for family not a date.
  • Really nice shopping and dining area in San Diego. You can't beat the views. I went during Comic Con 2016, and there weren't long lines. The staff at each of the retail shoppes were extremely nice! Would love to visit again!
