Seaport Village is a very family friendly shopping and dining complex adjacent to downtown San Diego, CA. It sets on the San Diego Harbor opposite to Coronado Island, just North of the Coronado Bridge.
Seaport Village attracts an assortment of talented street performers; such as magicians, painters, musicians, and more. This Saturday we spent a great deal of time watching the didgeridoo guy (see image to the left), our son
Jayce was completely entranced by the music.
There is also this guy who has an amazing talent at balancing large rocks. He uses the rocks along the shoreline levee, which is pretty convenient for him. He just shows up and starts stacking rocks! [see image below]
Seaport Village was built on landfill over Punta de los Muertos (Spanish for Point of the Dead), where the Spanish expedition of 1782 buried those who had died of scurvy. In later years it was a railroad yard where goods and other. Then Seaport Village broke ground in 1978 and opened in 1980. Seaport Village houses more than 70 shops, galleries, and eateries on 90,000 square feet of waterfront property. The Village contains several freestanding buildings in an assortment of architectural styles, from Victorian to traditional Mexican. It is designed to be a car-free environment, with four miles of winding paths rather than streets connecting the various buildings.
