Discover Fiesta de Reyes Restaurants and Shops in Historic Old Town!

Published by Terri Graham


The pretty plaza boasts 19 specialty shops, ranging from one-of-kind art and jewelry pieces to garden decor, ethnic-inspired clothing, Mexican pottery and an amazing array of Dia de Los Muertos merchandise. Diverse succulents and native trees adorn the beautifully landscaped courtyard, which is also dotted with Mexican folk artwork and informative signage noting San Diego’s history as a cosmopolitan frontier. In the courtyard’s center, colorful Folklorico dancers and mariachi bands take center stage, performing daily for visitors who sometimes come just for the entertainment. The venue also features three distinct restaurants and a 10-room boutique hotel for those wanting to complement their experience.
