San Diego Week: Old Town San Diego


Old Town San Diego lives up to its name as the oldest settled area in San Diego and the first European settlement in California.

Living808 took a trip back in time to the historic 230 acre town as part of San Diego Week sponsored by Alaska Airlines.

Old Town is commemorating 250 years and is celebrated as the birthplace of California, established in 1769. 

Old Town is home to many museums which document the City’s early years, as well as restaurants and shops. 

You can even pan for gold at the Mormon Battalion. 

Whatever you do, a stop in Old Town brings the rich history and culture of the community to life.

Now is a great time to visit since Old Town is celebrating with events such as the Founders’ Day Festival from September 14-15, 2019.

Alaska Airlines offers daily nonstop service to San Diego from Lihue, Honolulu, Kahului, and Kona.  

San Diego Week is sponsored by Alaska Airlines offering the most non-stop flights between Hawaii and the west coast.
