Next we reach the stunning San Diego Coronado
Bridge, locally referred to as the Coronado Bridge. In 1926, John D. Spreckels recommended
that a bridge be built between San Diego and Coronado, but voters dismissed the plan. The
U.S. Navy initially did not support a bridge that would span San Diego Bay to connect San
Diego to Coronado. They feared a bridge could be collapsed by attack or an earthquake and
trap the ships stationed at Naval Base San Diego.
The principal architect was Robert Mosher.
Construction on the San Diego–Coronado Bay Bridge started in February 1967. The bridge
required 20,000 tons of steel (13,000 tons in structural steel and 7,000 in reinforcing
steel) and 94,000 cubic yards of concrete. To add the concrete girders, 900,000 cubic yards
of fill was dredged and the caissons for the towers were drilled and blasted 100 feet into
the bed of the bay.
The bridge opened to traffic on August 3, 1969,
during the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the founding of San Diego. The
11,179-foot-long (3,407 m or 2.1 mi) bridge ascends from Coronado at a 4.67 percent grade
before curving 80 degrees toward San Diego. It is supported by 27 concrete girders, the
longest ever made at the time of construction.
The view of San Diego's skyline and the
adjoining bay is unique in all the world.
Downtown San Diego, also referred to as Centre
City, is the city center of San Diego, California, the eighth largest city in the United
States. In 2010, the Centre City area itself had a population of more than 28,000. Downtown
San Diego serves as the cultural and financial center and central business district of San
Diego, with more than 4,000 businesses and nine districts.
The downtown area is the home of the San Diego
Symphony and the San Diego Opera as well as multiple theaters and several museums. The San
Diego Convention Center and Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, are also located
downtown. Downtown San Diego houses the major local headquarters of the city, county, state,
and federal governments.
Seaport Village is a waterfront shopping and
dining complex adjacent to San Diego Bay in downtown San Diego, California. It is located at
849 West Harbor Drive, at the intersection of Harbor Drive and
It houses more than 70 shops, galleries, and
