Lying along the east side of San Diego Bay, the Embarcadero will appeal to fans of the historic maritime vessels and all things associated with the sea. The many attractions here include the Maritime Museum, U.S.S. Midway Museum, the Seaport Village, and Embarcadero Marina Park. The well-manicured waterfront promenades stretch along Harbor Drive and are perfect for strolling or jogging.
On the north end of the Embarcadero is the Maritime Museum, the highlight of which is the Star of India, a historic 19th century vessel. South of the museum, The U.S.S. Midway Museum - a museum housed in a Navy battleship - has loads of exhibits and a stellar collection of fighter planes. South of the Midway is Seaport Village, which has a collection of novelty shops and restaurants. Embarcadero Marina Park, with its public fishing pier and open-air amphitheater, lies to the south.
The Embarcadero is in downtown San Diego, and is easily accessible via car, bus, and San Diego Trolley. Parking is plentiful through the area, especially if you’re visiting one of the museums.
