Old Town

Filed under: Places to visit — Tags: — washaw @ 6:00 am

Old Town San Diego contains more than 150 shops, several good restaurants, museums, and historical sites within an easy walking area. Old Town, the Birthplace of California, is just a short walk from the San Diego Trolley Transit Center and a short drive from most San Diego destinations. Recommended.

Amtrak “Pacific Surfliner” and the “San Diego Trolley” in Old Town

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — washaw @ 6:00 am

Amtrak’s “Pacific Surfliner” rolls along the coast and on into San Diego as the final destination. Formally known as the “San Diegan” this service launched in 2000 and has become a very popular way to arrive here with about 20 million passengers served so far.    Another set of tracks supports our electric light-rail service, the “San Diego Trolley”, operational since 1981.  The Troley has expanded to include 53 miles of track and 53 stations. About 113,000 people ride the SD Trolley each weekday. Seems like alot until you think about the Metro in DC with 1.5 million daily or how about New York with over 10 million riders daily.   San Diego feels like a small city but actually we are the sixth largest in the U.S.

Heritage Park is Picture Perfect

Photographers love the beautiful backgrounds of Heritage Park near Old Town.  It is the picture perfect place.  San Diego’s historic Victorian structures were purchasing and moved to the site over a 25 year period.   Check out the other work done by SOHO (Save Our Heritage Organization) in and around San Diego.
