San Diego is a city full of beautiful sights and people, which makes America's Finest City a perfect place to people watch.
Here's 10 places around San Diego where you can take a seat (or a stroll) and enjoy the view:
-- Most likely the best place to people watch in all of San Diego. Take a walk through the historic (and very busy) Gaslamp Quarter, and when it's time for a break, many of the area restaurants, bars and lounges have outdoor seating for you to sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
Always plenty to do in the #gaslampquarter! Check out gaslamp.org for everything going on this month and don't forget to PARK + EXPLORE all of our local places. 📷: @garybyrne2711 . . . . #gaslampquarter #celebrate #downtownsandiego #dtsd #downtownsd #dineout #gaslamp150 #gaslampdistrict #gaslampsd #local #localbusiness #sandiego
