Both charming and educational at the same time. There are many shops, numerous restaurants, historical exhibits and plenty to do for all ages. One could spend the whole day here. It is also a stop on the Historical Hop on Hop Off trolley tour. I...More
Lots of historic buildings to tour and some have shops with merchandise for sale. Interesting to read the history of each. People were wearing period costumes and performing blacksmith skills, etc.

Hope you are still looking for advice as this is a bit late. San Diego is relatively small, so you can see a lot. Definitely see Coronado Island and Hotel del Coronado as well as the beach. Old Town is a must as is Balboa Park. Balboa Park can be a day-long deal. Lots to see there: artist village, Houses of Pacific Relations (different countries) etc.. The San Diego Zoo is fabulous and is right next to Palbos Park's
Old Town has great Mexican restaurants and some great shopping.
I also recommend a trolley tour.
