Located along San Diego Bay, Seaport Village is more than waterfront shopping. It is a destination attraction. This 14-acre complex along San Diego Bay recreates a harbor side village setting and environment of a century ago. It is comprised of more than 50 boutique shops, 13 casual places to dine, 4 fine bay view restaurants, and an antique carousel originally built in 1895 that features hand-carved horses.

Seaport Village is designed with four miles of meandering cobble stone pathways that are highlighted by fountains, lakes, ponds and lush,
colorful landscape. Over a quarter-mile of its boardwalk is along scenic San Diego Bay. It is an ideal venue for gift-shopping, spending a relaxing afternoon of strolling along the views of the harbor or having a romantic evening at one the four fine dining establishments at the village.

As you wind through the charming paths, you’ll see horse-drawn carriages, the sparkling waterfront, kids riding the carousel, and unique shops. The village features frequent concerts at two of its plazas and you can often see strolling musicians throughout the complex.
