      • An ideal intro: A scenic 25-mile loop around San Diego and Coronado combines with colorful, fast-paced onboard narration to equal a great two-hour city introduction.
      • Hop on and off all day: From 10 well-placed stops along the route, you can see and visit Old Town State Park, the Embarcadero, Seaport Village, Horton Plaza Shopping Center, the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Hotel del Coronado, Balboa Park & Zoo, Little Italy, and more. Your pass allows for unlimited re-boarding.
      • - PLUS Ghosts & Gravestones Tour: This combo package includes a spine-tingling, ghost-guided ride and walk that visits San Diego's most paranormal sites. Like a schoolyard park that was once a graveyard; the spirits still sometimes play there.
      • El Campo Santo Cemetery: Take a dark stroll through this infamous landmark in Old Town. Final resting place for a rogue's gallery of murderous characters, some are reported to be mighty restless indeed.
      • Whaley House: Gold Rush-era storeowner Thomas Whaley made one big mistake – building his home on a former gallows. Summon your courage and step inside for a look around "the Most Haunted House in America."

      Branded "America's Finest City" by a former mayor in the 70's, the name stuck. Probably because laid-back Dan Diego does have just about everything a city ought to: fine weather year-round, vibrant arts, cultural diversity, snappy sailors and ships, 70 miles of coastline, a cool Old Town, loads of family attractions, amazing Mexican food, craft beer up the wazoo, really great parks, shopping, marinas, sports. And that's just for starters.

      Which begs the question, "how in heck am I supposed to see it all?" But that answer's easy. Just hop aboard the Old City Trolley. Jump off at all the places that interest you, then hop back on again for more; cars come by each stop every half-hour or so.

      You'd best make the most of your balmy San Diego day, too, because this special combo package comes with an evening of way chillier sights.

      Take that Whaley House the Travel Channel calls "the Most Haunted House in America."
      Tom Whaley arrived here in 1849 and, displaying less than prudent judgment, opted to erect his sizable mansion on land that had recently held the town gallows. He'd actually witnessed the hanging of an incorrigible thief known as Yankee Jim Robinson there; you'll see Jim's grave at El Campo Santo Cemetery, another lighthearted stop on this evening's itinerary.

      To no one's surprise, life in the new Whaley house got odd quick. Almost from the start, Whaley's wife sensed an intruding presence, and heavy footsteps were often heard up on the second floor when no one was there.

      But the good folk of San Diego knew who was there: that damn Yankee Jim, who swung on the spot. Kids began sneaking up to the Whaley house at night, hoping for a ghostly glimpse of him.

      You may well get your own glimpse of Jim – or one of his spectral cohorts – during your Whaley House visit. Spirits are said to roam all over the joint, including those of the dear departed owners. Hey, we didn't make this up. Ask Whaley himself when you see him.

      On the sea and in the air

      Home port of the Pacific Fleet, San Diego has a long history as a center for Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard activities. You're liable to see everything from aircraft carriers to atomic subs in these waters. The skies over town are full of history, too. In 1883, the first successful glider flights were flown here. In 1911, Glenn Curtiss took off from San Diego Bay on the first successful seaplane flight. Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis was built here in 1927, and NASA's early Atlas booster engines were assembled and tested here.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 24 hours of requested services.
