Seaport Village is a collection of shops and restaurants by the San Diego Bay. There are many places where one can sit and watch the activity on the Bay (while eating ice cream). You also have a nice view of the Coronado Bridge from there. For the kids, the village has a vintage 1895 Looff carousel featuring a menagerie of animals.
Waterfront dining and shopping! Beautiful oceanviews while you shop and dine? What more could you want?! Scrumptious food, delightful eateries, unique gift shops, book nooks, souvenir shops, etc. I loved the place because it's just a fun, yet relaxing place to hang out.
Yes, it's for tourists, but if you're a tourist you should check it out. The little shops were fun and a good place to go if you're wanting to pick up some souvenirs or special gifts for people. I also enjoyed walking along the habour on our way to Seaport Village, it was beautfiul. There are also lots of places to eat there, some nice restuarants and some more along the line of fast food.
The Seaport Village is a mixture of shops, restaurants and green space along the shore right in the city. Besides the beauty of the water and the architecture of the buildings, people watching is quite fun and there are occasionally free concerts on the green.
Located right on San Diego Bay, this downtown entertainment and shopping complex features cobblestone paths and fine dining establishments (500 parking spaces in the outdoor pay lot where you can park free for two hours with any purchase, then it's $3 per hour thereafter).
This is a nice place to stroll, eat, shop and just enjoy life while in San Diego, but the stores are only open from 10:00 a.m. - 9:00p.m. (restaurants are open a bit later). Be careful on days when the cruise ship is in as prices may jump up a bit. l pay for the view.
We planned on a couple of hours for Seaport Village and the Marina. If you came to San Diego to shop, this area is a "don't-miss." If not, it is still a pleasant place to stroll along the marina, dine, enjoy an open-air cappuccino or bagel.

Spend some time around Embarcadero Marina and Seaport Village. Pleasant walks along the seafront, some of the shops are pretty touristy, but there is plenty there to keep anyone interested.
Then maybe walk a little along N Harbor Drive, past the fishing fleet, and take a short harbor cruise. San Diego is home to a large part of the US Navy. We saw several ships including a huge aircraft carrier.
Spend some time along the waterfront in Seaport Village; which is full of neat shops and touristy type of stuff. I guess it's built to resemble an old fashioned village, but if you have a good imagination I guess you could see that. There are a few pricey restaraunts there that sit out on the pier.(Not my in my budget but nice anyway). Not far from that is the Maritime Museums three ships. The Star of India is really neat. It looks like a pirate ship and you can wander through it and see what cabin life was like for the crew and passengers in the 1800's-ish.
Anything close to the water is going to be great, right??
SeaPort Village is a waterfront shopping and dinning area that has beautiful views of the ocean and harbor. There are great specialty shops. My favorites are the ones with amazing sea shell displays. There is often live entertainment too.
SeaPort village is a nice place in San diego harbor (waterfront) where you can come dine, shop or just visit and relax.
A pleasant place to eat, shop, and relax. Also a perfect jumping-off point to explore the city. The harbor tours leave from here.
Also in the Seaport Village area was this large basin where many yachts were docked, right beside the tourist shopping area.
One of the Trolley-tour stops included the Seaport Village area along the San Diego harbour waterfront. This is an area of shops and restaurants located close to the cruise ship docking wharfs.
