Scenes From Old Town, Part I

Old Town is one of the most popular tourist destinations in San Diego. It’s the first European settlement on the West Coast, and you can go inside historic buildings free of charge. We’ve done that before, so opted to stroll around the shops and restaurants. I’ll do a post on the old buildings in the future, as my favorite, the Mason schoolhouse, was closed for renovation.

You can get really good Mexican food in Old Town, complete with handmade tortillas. There are at least two place where you can watch women make them out front:

In case anyone was wondering who was first with the handmade tortillas.

The colors of Mexico are all throughout Old Town:

  1. Oh my goodness! I’ve been to the Coyote Cantina. I had forgotten all about it until I saw your photo. It was delicious. Thanks for reviving that memory.

    Beautiful photos! Reminds me of when we lived in Mexico…I was just a little girl, but I remember the vivid colors so well – I loved that everything was in beautiful, bold, bright colors! I’ve never been to San Diego, but I would love to visit, and your photos are very enticing!
