What you will visit:

Barrio Logan
One of San Diego's oldest communities and a designated National Historic Landmark, the lively Barrio Logan neighborhood is a vibrant arts district famed for its colorful outdoor murals as well as sculptures and architectural pieces dedicated to the heritage of the Chicano community. It is an epicenter of Mexican-American cuisine and a vital component of San Diego's food scene.

Old Town
Founded in 1769, Old Town exemplifies the Spanish and Mexican birth of San Diego. It was here that missionaries, soldiers and settlers built California's first mission and a fort. Among the historical architecture, artisan shops and intriguing craft galleries, you'll find eateries to your heart's content, all serving up classic Mexican favorites.

What you will see along the way:
As you head down the streets of the Barrio Logan heritage district, take in the stunning murals that adorn the concrete support piers, vivid depictions of culture and folk art. In Old Town, admire the enclave known as the State Historic Park, boasting 27 historic structures with themed architecture, preserved adobe buildings, and shops and museums that celebrate San Diego's past.

Tastings/Meal:

At ¡Salud!, a Chicano eatery located in the heart of Barrio Logan, sample authentic street-style tacos stuffed with succulent meats on a soft tortilla and a refreshing and fruity "agua fresca" drink.

Café Coyote is a mainstay in Old Town, known for its freshly made guacamole and assortment of chimichangas, flautas and quesadillas. As you savor your meal, a local tequila expert joins the group to share insight into the production of the blue agave plant and its distilled spirit.
