This park has an excellent history museum in the Robinson-Rose House at the southern end of the plaza. You’ll also find a diorama depicting the original pueblo at the park’s visitor center , where you can pick up a copy of the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park Tour Guide & Brief History ($3), or take a guided tour (free) at 11am and 2pm daily.

Across from the visitors center, the restored La Casa de Estudillo is filled with authentic period furniture. Other buildings around the plaza include a blacksmith shop, print shop and a candle-dipping shop (hours vary).

Fiesta de Reyes , just off the plaza’s northwestern corner, is a colorful collection of import shops and restaurants – great for Mexican souvenirs without the trip to Tijuana. Along San Diego Ave, on the southern side of the plaza, small, historical-looking buildings (only one is authentic) house more souvenir and gift shops.
