Seaport Village, San Diego

4.1
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.

  • The weather was overcast day will see many like that to go on I felt that. A few shops for tourists and small time dare to stay in San Diego, but the photo spot displacement is the place to be.

  • This is a shopping and light dining area. You can eat and gave cocktails on outside patios over looking the bay, or you can shop for just about anything you desire. There are snack shops, bake goods, kites, toys, off the wall gifts... all in little shops to walk in and out of. It is shaded with ponds and ducks and sometimes street performers. Good for kids. There is a long paved walk way along the waterfront for joggers or walkers or strollers. Lots to see and do, worth your time...can be a romantic getaway also...
  • One of the best places to visit in San Diego. Colorful and welcoming full of vibrant people from all over the world. I come here to relax drink coffee and walk around the park. In the summer I take my niece to Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Shop and after we sit on the benches to listen to the local artist perform. It's the perfect combination of relaxation, fun and entertainment. Best Place in San Diego!
  • Seaport Village is just a fun place to visit in order to get up close views of the San Diego Bay and relax at the park. There are lot of great places to eat there as well. Edge Water Grill is probably my favorite because their outdoor seating has the best SD Bay views. You can walk along the bay there as well and the paved pathway is unobstructed, so you can go from one end to the other while watching the sunset or enjoy the coastal breeze.
  • It’s a great place to just enjoy the beauty of the San Diego harbor. On the weekends there are different kinds of vendors there along with some local performers. Once you enjoy lunch at one of the local restaurants you can spend the rest of the day walking along the harbor and enjoying the scenery, performers and attractions. Best way to burn those calories from all the booze and food.
  • Our day just got better after our beautiful stroll around Embarcadero Marina Park North. A lot more stores to see, tons of places to eat, and many more interesting people to meet, watch, and appreciates what they do. We were trying to get to the Red Bull Air Race event but we ended up just watching from here. We got a good view, and even if it was crowded, it was still an enjoyable spot. I get really tired when I'm under the sun for too long. So I walked over to one of the stores and hung around under the shade instead. Still a good view from there and store owner didn't mind. Cool Beans! It's been a while since I walked around here during sunset. So, we'll definitely comeback when it's less crowded. Seaport Village is also a good spot for fourth of July to see some fireworks.
