There are a few places in Downtown San Diego that we at Oakwood Escrow find a little more enjoyable in the summertime. Check out these awesome places and try to enjoy at least one of them before summer comes to an end!
Located on the San Diego Bay, Seaport Village is a great place to go with friends or the family to enjoy some local shops and vendors with a nice ocean breeze. From a Christmas shop that’s open year round to surf shops and a store dedicated to hot sauce, you can find almost anything while venturing through Seaport Village. On the grassy area outside the shops, treat yourself to a henna tattoo or get your palm read on the weekends. Stay around later in the day to watch the incredible sunset after enjoying a walk around the village.

USS Midway Museum
Take a step back in time to the 1940s when the USS Midway began its journey in the Cold War. This ship played a key role in the Cold War and had the first air kill of the Vietnam War in the 60s. Explore around this old, historical ship and see all aspects and quarters of the ship. Start at the top deck, where you can see and go inside of some old war planes, then make your way through the tight hallways under the ship where you can find the crew’s sleeping quarters, their dining area, the captain’s room, training rooms, etc. There’s so much history waiting to be discovered once you step aboard the USS Midway.
