One of the great benefits of living in Downtown San Diego, is the ability to be able to walk everywhere including The San Diego Harbor, Embarcadero and Balboa Park. Here are some photos of my recent walk downtown before everything was shutdown due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
A great place to start a Downtown San Diego Walk is at Jimbo’s Naturally Horton Plaza. There is a parking garage and Jimbo’s validates 2 hours of parking with a small purchase. Horton Plaza Mall is set for reconstruction sometime in the future so the parking garage may or may not be available once reconstruction begins.
Jimbo’s Naturally is located at 92 Horton Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101.
The Downtown San Diego Walk took me an hour to complete at a moderate pace of 17:35 minutes per mile for a total of 3.47 miles.
Begin walk by heading west on 1st Avenue towards Market St.
Turn right onto 3rd Avenue.
Horton Grand Hotel is located on the corner of Island Avenue and 3rd Avenue.
Turn left onto Island Avenue. The Gaslamp Museum at the Davis Horton House is the oldest structure in the Gaslamp Quarter and is located at 410 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.
