In San Diego, Downtown is the vibrant center of it all, home to live theater, more than 150 restaurants, a pulsing music scene, nightclubs, art galleries and shopping. Downtown consists of eight distinct neighborhoods; most notable is the historic Gaslamp Quarter, a 16 ½-block dining and nightlife scene. The Embarcadero along San Diego Bay features the Maritime Museum, USS Midway Museum, and Seaport Village. Little Italy is a quaint and lively neighborhood of patio cafes, Italian restaurants, pubs, art galleries, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy la vita bella. East Village is a rapidly evolving neighborhood of hip boutiques and trendy eateries sprouting around the neighborhood’s biggest attraction – PETCO Park, home to the San Diego Padres.

The USS Midway Museum
April 1, 2014 | 7:00pm – 10:00pm
Join the Lawrence Family JCC on Tuesday, April 1 when they host us on the USS Midway Museum in downtown San Diego. You’ll explore a floating city at sea and relive nearly 50 years of world history aboard the longest-serving Navy aircraft carrier of the 20th century. More than 200,000 sailors served our country on this ship and upheld the American ideals of strength, freedom and peace. Explore more than 60 exhibits with a collection of 29 restored aircraft. Those who dare can “take to the sky” aboard one of two flight simulators.
