Seaport Village equals 90,000 square feet of amazing trees, ponds, lakes, fountains, unique shops, cobblestone paths, a 1/4 mile boardwalk and one magnificent view of San Diego’s skyline.
Seaport Village is relatively new. It opened in 1980 and it’s located downtown San Diego. This is kind of creepy, so don’t think about it while you’re visiting the Village. It is built on landfill over Punta de los Muertos (Point of the Dead). In 1782 the Spanish expedition buried those who died of scurvy there. Later it became a railroad yard where due to the location ships unloaded their cargo and the trains were loaded and headed east. It was in 1978 that ground was broken for Seaport Village.
