The Embarcadero Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"San Diego’s Embarcadero, the place of departure and arrival for vessels as small as fishing skiffs and as large as ocean liners, defines the city’s connection to the watery worlds of San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The unquestionably spectacular views are somewhat marred by a preponderance of all-too-wide thoroughfares given over to car traffic, parking lots, and hulking military buildings.
All that is changing and will evolve over the next decades as several major redevelopment projects come online to spiff up the waterfront with wide walkways, grassy parks for picnics and entertainment events, more restaurants and retail outlets, and a remade skyline immediately inland. Therefore, our directions for travel along the Embarcadero will remain somewhat tentative for years to come."
