    Welcome to San Diego! Thank you for joining us on today’s tour, San Diego: America’s Finest City, brought to you by ListenUp Audio.

    My name is Claire and I'll be your guide today. This tour takes approximately one hour to complete. Our tour will include stops at several museums, so feel free to pause and explore them. You can stop at any time and restart the tour later. I'll be providing you with clear directions, and the audio will start automatically when you get close to each point of interest. The first leg of our tour consists of a leisurely stroll along the Embarcadero, so if you're ever in doubt about where we're headed next, just follow the water. If a site is closed or your path is blocked, simply go around it and the tour will pick up at the next location. Don't forget to stay aware of your surroundings at all times and obey all traffic signals.

    OK, are you ready to get started? Our tour begins in Waterfront Park at 1600 Pacific Highway. Take a moment to get your bearings, then make your way to the front entrance of the County Administration Center facing the harbor.

    San Diego is considered the “birthplace of California." European settlers first arrived here on the west coast in the mid-16th century. The area officially became part of the United States some 200 years later, at the end of the U.S.-Mexican War. Today, the city is famous for its near-perfect weather, miles and miles of pristine beaches, our proud history with the U.S. Navy and, of course, Sea World and the San Diego Zoo. But it’s also a city steeped in history. From the frontier days of the wild West to World War II on up to the thriving and diverse community of today, San Diego is an endlessly fascinating city. So let’s go exploring!

    Отличный путеводитель по городу, не попали только на пирс, был закрыт военными
