    One of my favorite places in San Diego...the first "downtown" in San Diego. Great history. Check out the "happy hours" at the various bars and restaurants on San Diego Ave.

    Worth a quick stop for a historic walk if you happened to be in town. Don't forge to check out the first court house in San Diego right by the Wells Fargo bank built in 1847.

    There is a wagon near the hotel that is a great setting for a fun, western photo shoot.
