Hotels

The 1,360-room San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina's two curved and glass-sheathed towers lend their distinctive features to the San Diego skyline.

The double-towered, 1,625-room Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego features three restaurants and four bars, including The Top of the Hyatt on the 40th floor, offering panoramic views.

Located across the street from Seaport Village, the Embassy Suites Hotel San Diego Bay offers 337 spacious suites and a seafood restaurant.

Restaurants

The Fish Market offers visitors a casual dining experience with oyster and cocktail bars, while the fine-dining menu served at the second-floor Top of the Market is paired with views of Coronado and San Diego Bay.

Film buffs love to visit Kansas City Barbecue, where bar scenes from the popular 1986 film "Top Gun" were filmed.

A local breakfast favorite, the funky Café 222 serves up a menu of stuffed omelets, various benedicts and their signature peanut butter waffles.

The San Diego Wine & Culinary Center offers an urban winery experience with a wine and cocktail tasting bar; a bright, open kitchen for chef demonstrations; wine blending; and cooking classes.

Shopping

Seaport Village, a 14-acre waterfront shopping, dining and entertainment complex, recreates a California harbor setting of a century ago with four miles of meandering cobblestone pathways, ponds, fountains, lush landscaping, 57 themed shops, restaurants, and cafes.

Museums

The New Children's Museum empowers children to think, play and create through fun-filled exhibitions, hands-on artmaking activities, special artistic performances, and educational experiences. It includes art galleries, open studios, sit-down café, and an adjacent museum park with outdoor art pieces and space for children to create art.


With more than 100 distinct neighborhoods in San Diego, you're always just blocks away from a new experience. Discover other nearby downtown San Diego neighborhoods such as East Village, the Embarcadero and Little Italy.
