Pier / Boardwalk Shopping Mall
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.

  • This is a very exciting area all year but the summer is the best time to go. I highly suggest the carrosel built in 1895, it has a very carnival feel to it and lots of cool history to learn about it. ...  more »

  • Lots of nice shops to spend money in. Delis, other restaurants adorn the area. There's a Naval shipyard right there for your viewing pleasure. Lots of things to see in the harbor itself as well. We saw many seals on the docks. They're loud! Fairly small, too, which makes it pretty easy to get around. Nice weather most of the year. A jacket may be necessary from time to time, and rain can hinder a lovely day. Other than those two weather issues, there's not really weather issues! Parking is a premium. $1.75 an hour in the front lot. Pay to stay in a meter. People will wait for you to leave as there are a shortage of parking spaces at that rate. Basically, parking sucks...
  • - Amazing shops with all kinds of Souvenirs, reasonable prices, and great costumer service - Nicely decorated Plaza. There are all kinds of interesting surprises at Seaport Village. The last time I went, I got front row seat at a sword swallowing performance by the "3rd best sword swallowed in the world."
  • This place is really nice to find some gift o souvenirs, there is a lot of shops with reasonable prices and great customer service. There are some restaurants that adorn the area and a lot of things to see in the harbor itself. Great place for family or for a nice walk.
  • I usually come here if I need to buy some souvenirs for visiting friends. There are a lot of cute small shops in here, where you can find a lot of interesting things. Some restaurants with great view as well. And street performances sometimes.
  • Beautiful area to walk around. Love being right on the bay. Nice views and relaxing to spend time there. The stores are nice with lots of options to do your shopping and the people in the shop were very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed my brief time shopping.
