Seaport Village Tours

star-4.5
5 Reviews
Seaport Village
Overview
A harborside hub buzzing with shopping, dining, and entertainment, Seaport Village attracts tourists and locals alike. The historic-style waterfront has everything from upscale eateries to vendors selling fresh fish. Stroll the boardwalk, ride the carousel, or indulge in seafood while listening to live music.

The Basics

Seaport Village is a classic San Diego attraction. Dine at the postcard-worthy San Diego Pier Cafe—perched on stilts above the water—for views and photo opps. Nearby, the historic hand-carved carousel entertains both kids and adults. And you’ll often find a range of activities, from free concerts to workshops. Seaport Village is a popular stop on walking and GoCar excursions. For a different perspective of the waterfront, cruise by on a boat tour of the city.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Validation for the Seaport Village parking lot is available with purchase.
  • Seaport Village is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
How to Get There
Located along North Harbor Drive, Seaport Village is about 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the international airport, and a mile (1.6 kilometers) from the cruise ship terminal. A boardwalk connects Seaport Village to a convention center and many hotels, making it easy to explore the area on foot or bicycle. Alternatively, take the San Diego trolley, or join a tour that includes transport.

When to Get There

San Diego’s idyllic weather makes the waterfront enjoyable year-round, but Seaport Village is especially popular during annual events like the spring Busker Fest and Holidays by the Bay. Check the Seaport Village website for concerts, talks, and other events.

The Busker Festival at Seaport Village
While street performers can be found along the waterfront in any season, Seaport Village comes alive one weekend each spring with everything from unicyclist jugglers to sword-swallowing magicians. Family-friendly by day, the free festival switches to 18 and up for the Saturday night Buskers After Dark—an evening of entertainment, food, and drinks.
Address: 849 W Harbor Dr, San Diego, California 92101, USA
