USS Midway Museum

USS Midway Museum

Walk south for just five minutes on North Harbor Drive from the cruise terminal to reach the gigantic carrier ship, the USS Midway, tied up at Navy pier. Tour the amazing aircraft carrier and see several presentations about the navy heritage of San Diego.

Maritime Museum of San Diego

Maritime Museum of San Diego

Continuing with the nautical theme, if you take the opposite direction to the USS Midway from the cruise pier, a short walk will lead you to the fascinating Maritime Museum, one of the world’s best collection of historic ships. Highlights include the Star of India, one of the first iron-hull ships, the Californian, the official tall ship of the State of California, the Berkeley, a 1898 steam-driven ferryboat from San Francisco bay and B39, a cold-war era Russian submarine.

Seaport Village

Seaport Village

There's some great retail therapy at seaside-themed Seaport Village, which features a restaurant on stilts perched over the bay, and a whitewashed faux-lighthouse. Explore over 50 trendy shops, over 15 eateries, and enjoy lots of outdoor entertainment. To reach the village, hike or take a cab for about half a mile south from the cruise pier (going past the USS Medway).

Embarcadero Marine Park

Embarcadero Marine Park

Just beyond Seaport VIllage you'll find Embarcadero Marina Park, which is separated into two parts by the marina. On seeing the established trees, lawns and flowerbeds you'd be suprised to hear that the park was formed from dredged materials from the bay. Walk the path along the water's edge for sweeping vistas over downtown and San Diego bay.

Gaslamp Quarter

Gaslamp Quarter

San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is billed as the historic heart of San Diego, and the oldest buildings date back to the mid 19th century. Here you'll find lots of boutique shops, galleries, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, bars, nightclubs and jazz clubs with a charming Victorian ambience combined with a thoroughly modern vibe. The quarter is also home to big events, from music festivals and food fairs to the famous St Patricks Day parade. The Gaslamp Quarter is about half-a-mile inland from the cruise ship piers.
