Old Town is where San Diego was established by Mexico during the 1820s, and in many ways it retains its quaint traditional atmosphere even today. Mexican art, jewelry, and restaurants can all be found along its humble streets, sometimes in authentic adobe houses. The area is fairly close to the ocean, which is occasionally visible from the hills on its eastern border.

What’s Cool About Old Town
Things may move at a slower pace in Old Town, but residents are never without something to do. They can practice their drives at the Presidio Hills Golf Course, see the elegant Victorian homes in Heritage Park, or discover the area’s rich history at Presidio Park’s Serra Museum. The supposedly haunted Whaley House brings scares to children and adults alike, and the Old Town Theatre always has a great play to offer. San Diego’s biggest festivals for Cinco de Mayo and Christmas are also held in Old Town each year.
Old Town tends to feature smaller homes and apartments, ideal for people who value a tranquil environment but don’t wish to sacrifice mobility. The area is bounded by the 5 Freeway to the west and the 8 Freeway to the north, and the Transit Center has stops for the bus, train, and trolley. Downtown, Pacific Beach, Point Loma, and the Mission Valley and Fashion Valley Malls are just a few minutes away, so residents always have options available. By Gary Kent
