Old Town San Diego State Historic Park is celebrating travel and transportation in the era of real horsepower during "Stagecoach Days." Sponsored by Fiesta de Reyes and Boosters of Old Town, this free event features a different theme each Saturday. Attendees will enjoy afternoons filled with activities that reflect life in early San Diego and celebrate the West on the move. Through living history activities and demonstrations, stories, and song, visitors will gain an appreciation for early modes of travel and daily life. All activities are geared toward children and adults of all ages.
The park is located on San Diego Avenue and Twiggs Street in San Diego, and is conveniently located next to the Old Town Transit Center, just two blocks from the park at 4050 Taylor Street.
"Soldiers and Citizens"
The military has been part of San Diego since its inception. Following the Mexican American War, dragoons, the Mormon Battalion and the Boundary Commission all had an impact on life in San Diego.
