San Diego Bay Walk, San Diego

4.7
Take an easy walk that winds through downtown and the city's waterfront area along San Diego Bay Walk. The scenic stroll offers a taste of the city's mix of stunning nature and urban edge. Begin a self-guided tour of the bay at Broadway Pier (where you can also stock up on gifts at the souvenir shops). Head north to find the terminal where most cruise ships launch, surrounded by fish shops and restaurants. Here, consider taking a tour of the Star of India, a mast ship from 1863. Heading south from Broadway Pier, you come across Navy Pier, where Navy ships often dock and welcome visitors on free tours.

  • It's very nice and quiet, the bad thing is that you find homeless and all its dirt that I don't like at all

  • Wonderful place to walk! All sidewalk and wonderful views from around the bay. There are parks along the way and lots of activity to observe taking place on the bay.  more »

  • Great area to spend the day. There is a lot to do and many great places to eat most of it within walking distance. Or you can rent an electric scooter that can be found on the corner streets.
  • San Diego Bay is a beautiful place with an amazing skyline. You can sail, boat, do an amazing amount of extreme sports and so much more. There are a variety of things you can do. Walk along the Esplanade, see Seaport Village, go on a tour of the USS Nimitz, ride a scooter downtown, see the Jets take off from North Island or landing at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field Airport.
