Old Town San Diego Inns are the ideal way to explore the rich history of one of California's most important districts. The famed birthplace of the state, Old Town has a quaint Spanish appeal you won't find anywhere else. It's a place to explore at leisure over the course of a few laidback days. Check in to a local inn and you set the pace for an easygoing trip back in time.
San Diego was the first settlement site for the Spanish settlers. First explored in 1542, it wasn't until the end of the Mexican War in 1848, that it gained status as territory in the state of California. The area developed rapidly and, over the course of the next 20 years, the roots of modern day downtown San Diego were established.
Vestiges of early settlement days remain remarkably intact, and they have been reinvigorated by the city's strong commitment to preservation. Trolley tours allow visitors to get a real taste of what life was once like, and they provide fun and entertainment for people of all ages.
