East Village is an arts and industrial neighborhood, liberally sprinkled with residences, local neighborhood businesses, and a plethora of taverns and pubs. It is a place where entrepreneurial spirit thrives amid its eclectic combination arts, culture, education, and entertainment. It is located east of the Gaslamp Quarter and southeast of the Core district and Cortez Hill in downtown San Diego.
The 2-hour walking tour will take you past the modern PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres. Guides will point out quirky shops, boutique specialty stores, and many curious entertainment and other fun establishments you may wish to come back and visit later. While walking the group will stop in several local pubs, sampling flights of the one-of-a-kind artisan craft beers available only in the East Village. Expect to stroll 2-3 miles as we make our way through this engaging tour. Come prepared with comfortable walking shoes, hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Don’t worry, if you find you are done walking, you can always call for an Uber or Lyft back to the hotel, if you bring your phone.
The tour will depart from the Marriott Marquis Pacific Ballroom Foyer (ground floor) on Thursday at 3:30 pm sharp.
