Old Town, one of the most historic places San Diego has to offer. In fact Old Town is said to be the “birthplace” of California! Built in the 1800s the first missions were created by Father Junipero Serra and a Mexican community was formed.
California declared this town as a state park in 1968 to preserve its history and rich culture. Old Town is home to many parks, shops, restaurants, bars and hotels. Throughout the town there are historic sites as well as demonstrations on quilting and blacksmithing!
