Not just for tourists, local San Diegans love to explore Old Town. A large section of Old Town is a state park consisting of buildings and homes rebuilt to match the originals back when San Diego was settled. Old Town is also known as the "Birthplace of California" as the state's first European settlers built homes here. Old Town is where you will find the best tequila in town, along with many activities the entire family can enjoy.
