With its gorgeous waterfront locale in the heart of downtown San Diego, the Marriott Hotel and Marina is a sight to be seen – If you’re residing here during your stay, it’s a convenient way to catch the Old Town Trolley Tour of San Diego. There’s a hub of activity to view in the harbor, and right next door is the spectacular San Diego Convention Center where a variety of events, conventions and special activities take place throughout the year.
While passing the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade, more inspired artwork is sure to catch your eye, including the Breaking the Chains sculpture which was designed to represent breaking the chains of hatred among all mankind. Its creator, Melvin Edwards, hopes to instill Martin Luther King Jr’s message of hope and peace among all who view it.
And for our little guests, a stop at the Children’s Park and Pond will be a treat. Grassy hills and knolls are perfect for rolling down, while the beautiful blue pond surrounds squirting bamboo stalks sure to refresh any playful participant.
