San Diego waterfront redefined with the Headquarters at Seaport District

See also

The newest portion of the waterfront at Seaport District combines old architecture charm, historical significance, and the open air lifestyle common in San Diego into one remarkable location: The Headquarters.

Originally the iconic former headquarters of the San Diego police department, The Headquarters provides shopping, dining, and a bit of history for the visitor. With an eclectic architectural combination of Classic Revival, Churriqueresque, Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean Revival, and Pueblo Deco, the location is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The plaza provides a calm shopping and dining experience, with over an acre of urban gardens, yet still located minutes from downtown.

Retail outlets in The Headquarters reflect the area. This includes the Aaron Chang Ocean Art Gallery, featuring the renowned surfing photographer, Simply Local Emporium, showcasing local merchants and artists, and Lolo, with upcoming So Cal fashion designers in the mix of their offering.

There are also several choices for dining, including Puesto Mexican Street Food, a La Jolla favorite, Pizzeria Mozza, a San Diego-exclusive restaurant, and Seasons 52, an upscale healthy eating establishment, with no dish being over 475 calories.

Whatever your reason, add The Headquarters as part of your stop along San Diego's beautiful waterfront.
