Synopsis: Fifteen exciting one-day motor car trips to San Diego's most interesting historic sites. Easy-driving routes with notes on time, mileage, food and comfort stops. Visit old adobes, one-rom schools, costly mansions, pioneer graveyards, missions, an 1894 Community Hall, rustic bachelor's shanty, gold mines, hot springs, Spanish exploration routes and Mexican-American battle sites. For adventure discover Top Gun Street, Goesno Place, Dusty Road, Muffin Court and 200 more oddly-named public streets in San Diego County.
This is a reader-friendly book for individual wandering, families seeking day-long diversions and teachers guiding students to regional history. EAch route and its sites are clearly described and map reading is not necessary. Parking, food and comfort stops are listed, with mileage and average tour times.
