Create an itinerary including San Diego Bay Walk
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.

  • Stroll along and admire all the boats and ships, and tour the USS Midway Museum. Great location. Go visit Little Italy afterwards, a few blocks away.

  • San Diego airport was noise polluted. Greyhound terminal area had lots of homeless looking guys. I hated this walk as it reflected on the shabbiest of SD.
