As the birthplace of California, Old Town San Diego has seen its fair share of history. Today, it's also widely regarded for its restaurants, margaritas and souvenir shops. And we'll get to sample all on this cultural foodie tour!
We'll start our exploration at the Adobe Chapel which served both as a home and church in the 19th century. Then you'll be treated to handmade tortillas, a world-famous dish that dates back to before Columbus landed in North America.
We'll continue the tour and view one of the oldest brick buildings in Southern California, best known for the ghosts who haunt it, and see some wonderful examples of Victorian architecture, including San Diego's first synagogue.
The nourishment from the tortillas will be handy as we start our brief hike to the original European settlement on the West Coast of the U.S. We'll see the outline of some of the 18th century structures and learn about the indigenousness people who were here when the Europeans arrived.
Once back in town we'll visit a hundred-year-old Catholic church, followed by a stroll through a landmark cemetery with graves dating back to the 1850s.
By now you might be thirsty, so we will take a brief walk to a local tequileria boasting a collection of thousands of bottles. Here you will learn about the many different types of tequilas and be treated to a taste of one of the best tequilas in the world. (This sample is included as part of your tour price, but you may instead choose a margarita, beer or another beverage of your choice).
We'll bid adios here, but feel free to linger over another drink, or dig into some great Mexican food. Or, if you want to keep moving, you can continue shopping and exploring this great San Diego neighborhood.
