SAN DIEGO OLD TOWN STATE HISTORIC PARK

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is the most visited park in the California park system and all of its museums are free to the public.

The site of the first permanent Spanish settlement in California, in 1769, Father Junipero Serra, a Spanish Franciscan missionary, established California's first Spanish mission, Mission San Diego de Alcalá, on a hillside. The town developed below as retired soldiers and settlers built homes, and this is the area that is currently known as Old Town San Diego.

   Mission San Diego de Alcalá
   10818 San Diego Mission Road, 92108

In 1968, the State of California Department of Parks and Recreation established Old Town State Historic Park to preserve and recreate Old Town as it existed from its settlement in 1821, through 1872. The buildings now house museums, shops and restaurants.

POPULAR ATTRACTIONS
WHALEY HOUSE

Located two blocks down San Diego Avenue, within the Whaley House Museum Complex, is one of the most popular attractions--the Whaley House. The Whaley House is reputed to be the most haunted house in the United States. The Complex is a county-owned park consisting of five historic buildings.


HERITAGE PARK

Several Victorian homes have been relocated to save them from demolition and have been authentically restored. They now house shops and bed & breakfasts.


FIESTA DE REYES

Fiesta de Reyes (former location of the Bazaar del Mundo) is located in the northwest corner of Old Town's town square. The best attraction here is the patio dining and Mexican food.

Bazaar del Mundo, formerly at this location, is now at Taylor and Juan Streets. The Casa de Pico restaurant has moved to La Mesa.


PRESIDIO PARK

The main attraction here is the Junípero Serra Museum. It is located near the Mission San Diego de Alcalá (and often confused with it). The Serra Museum was built between 1928-1929 for the purpose of housing and showcasing the collection of the San Diego History Center, which was founded in 1928.
