8 Best Things to Do in Downtown San Diego | Bangkok Day Spa
There are tons of fun things to do in downtown San Diego, and these 8 make the top of the list:
1. Dress up at Comic-Con
Each summer, costume-clad fans of comic books, movies, and sci-fi flock to San Diego for the greatest pop culture gathering of the year: Comic Con. For four days, comic book publishers and video game producers host booths in the convention center, while author and celebrity panels attract crowds to discuss their favorite characters and series. The people-watching in downtown San Diego makes it great fun even if you don't have a ticket.
2. Experience life on an aircraft carrier at USS Midway Museum
The 64 ton, World War Two era aircraft carrier USS Midway was the world's largest naval vessel at one time. Today, it’s a permanent fixture on the San Diego waterfront, hosting a million visitors each year to explore its decks — especially its flight deck, where they get a close up look at more than two dozen types of vintage military aircraft.
3. Explore old boats at the San Diego Maritime Museum
At the northwestern-most edge of downtown San Diego, the San Diego Maritime Museum is actually a collection of vintage and replica watercraft. Guests may board vessels including a steamboat, clipper ship, and two different Cold War era submarines: one made by the U.S.A., the other by the U.S.S.R.
4. Take a stroll or bike ride along the Waterfront
A walking and bike path runs from the Maritime Museum down to the convention center, passing boat-filled marinas, grassy parks, the shops at Seaport Village, and breathtaking views of San Diego Bay.
5. Ferry to Coronado Island
Every day, the Coronado Ferry offers hourly service from Broadway Pier, across the channel to beautiful Coronado. The scenic ride costs $4.75 each way, and if you've just ridden the waterfront, you can bring your bike to explore Coronado. Even if you don't, the journey alone is worth the price.
6. Root for the Padres at PETCO Park
During the summer months, one of the best things to do in downtown San Diego is catching a major league baseball game at PETCO Park. The Padres don't always win, but it's almost always the perfect weather for an afternoon or evening game in this beautiful urban stadium.
7. Party in the Gaslamp
It's had different names over the years, but the Gaslamp Quarter has been a nightlife destination since sailors first started coming ashore to a very young downtown San Diego in the late 19th century. Weekend nights, in particular, Gaslamp comes alive as young revelers come from all over the county to dine, dance, and drink.
8. Get a massage at Bangkok Day Spa
With so many great things to do, the best way to wrap up your active day in downtown San Diego is to get a rejuvenating and alleviating massage.
