  • Explore the Headquarters at Seaport. Just a short walk or roll away from the Assembly campus, this former headquarters of the San Diego Police Department is downtown San Diego’s most exciting new retail and dining destination. This artfully designed, open-air center is home to an exclusive collection of specialty shops and restaurants.
  • Stroll through San Diego’s famous Gaslamp Quarter. The historic heart of downtown, the Gaslamp Quarter combines beautiful Victorian buildings from the late 1800s with a dynamic urban setting to create an exciting dining and nightlife district.
  • Check out the famous San Diego Zoo, home to over 4,500 rare and endangered animals, in addition to a vast botanical collection. An urban paradise for all ages, the San Diego Zoo is a must-see in Southern California.
