San Diego Old Town, San Diego
Choose one of several interesting and colorful restaurants to meet and enjoy friends, food, and drink. Such lush plantings all around, Spainish decor, Mexican tiles, stucco walls, fountains, Margueritas flowing everywhere. YES!!
LMKLUQUE was our VT greeter who suggested we meet at this wonderful spot. It was comfortable and the waitress was patient with our lingering. Good chips. Very tasty drinks. Hmmm I'd better not have too many of those. Thanks, Linda for being so accomodating and helpful. Sorry we had to run off on the late arrivals. I'll make it up when all of you come to Providence!!
Dress Code: Everything is pretty casual in Old Town. Of course restaurants expect you to be reasonable.
The old-town entrance: a colleague posing for me.
This area is full of shops and restaurants, do not expect to find particularly cheap prices, anyway. Where tourists are, prices go up, it is an universal rule. Food is mexican in the largest percentage of restaurant, so, SPICY!
Old Town State Historic Park is where the city of San Diego began. La Casa de Bandini was built in 1829 and soon became the social center of Old Town. Today is a Mexican restaurant where the margaritas are great.
Get to Old Town some time before lunch or dinner to have a walk around the town. There are many restaurants into old California typical houses, old banks, stores...
