San Diego Area Campgrounds Professional Review and Guide
"On Presidio Hill in the city of San Diego stands the Serra Museum. A short distance down the hill, Old Town provides another sense of the state’s early settlement. Downtown, the Gaslamp Quarter, a national historic district, contains fine examples of Victorian architecture. San Diego Harbor hosts one of the largest naval bases in the world, yet the waterfront is a showcase.
The Embarcadero, a landscaped boardwalk, leads past the Maritime Museum to Seaport Village, a replica of an early California seaport. San Diego boasts what is probably the finest water-oriented park in the nation, Mission Bay. Encompassing 4,600 acres and 27 miles of sandy beaches, the park offers every conceivable water activity, as well as picnic areas, playgrounds, tennis and volleyball courts, cycling/skating/jogging paths, restaurants, shops, and two huge campgrounds."
