Little Italy. San Diego

We left Old Town and took the Trolly to Little Italy. Little Italy is a neighborhood in Downtown San Diego, that was originally a predominantly Italian and Portuguese fishing neighborhood.

Once home to San Diego’s flourishing tuna fishing industry and generations of Italian families who made their living on the sea, Little Italy is now a lively neighborhood with cozy patio cafés, international restaurants, craft brew stops … hmm maybe we visited a few of those 😀 … urban wineries, art galleries, shops, and boutique hotels.

The neighborhood boasts of being the largest “Little Italy” in the United States, spanning 48 square blocks. I have been to Little Italy in New York, and now in San Diego, and found both of them interesting and different.

We had a great time wandering the streets, checking out the menu’s at the various restaurants, and as I said visiting a few craft breweries. Little Italy is definately worth a visit!

Until next time …
