San Diego’s Seaport Village

Embarcadero Marina Park North and South

Seaport Village on San Diego’s Embarcadero is one of the city’s best combination waterfront shopping, dinning and family entertainment experiences. Adjacent Embarcadero Marina Park is a small but very popular San Diego public park split in half by the entrance from San Diego Bay into Embarcadero Marina.

Seaport Village shopsYou'll find 14 acres and about 75 shops and galleries, restaurants and sidewalk eateries at Seaport Village in San Diego.
Primarily targeted toward visitors, locals also enjoy the restaurants and view, especially with out-of-town company.
The San Diego Pier Cafe is probably the best known restaurant at Seaport Village — because of its picturesque location out over the bay, seafood and views.
Many shops cater to tourists and feature, mostly unique, souvenirs and gift items. You probably wouldn't want to do your home-furnishing and fashion shopping at Seaport Village.
Mukilteo Lighthouse replicaThe official symbol of Seaport Village, a 45-foot-high replica of the turn-of-the-century Mukilteo Lighthouse of Everett, Washington is taller than any other building in the village.
San Diego’s Seaport Village overlooks the harbor and is a great place to view Coronado and the Coronado Bridge. Sunsets here can be spectacular also.
Its location on the bay means the temperature is always pleasant though you might need a jacket in the evening.
After almost a quarter of a century, one popular attraction at Seaport Village — the Broadway Flying Horses Carousel — has closed and been sold.

The entrance to the marina divides the parks. A walkway extends along the shore, around the marina and past the Marriott and San Diego Convention Center, connecting the two small parks.
Marina view from Embarcadero Park NorthYou can walk right out of Seaport Village into the Embarcadero Park North. Very popular and sometimes crowded on weekends, picnicing, kite flying and enjoying the spectacular views are popular activities.
Embarcadero Marina Park South has been home to the Symphony Summer Pops and the festival of restaurants, San Diego a la Carte.
The South Embarcadero Park Pier (also known as the Embarcadero Marina Pier) has been a popular fishing pier since its dedication in 1980.
