2023 Study Tour Dashboard
SAN DIEGO, CA
September 27-29, 2023
Downtown San Diego is a 1,450-acre urban center for the eighth most-populated city in the United States. It has nine neighborhood districts, each distinguished with its own characteristics. Vibrancy overflows in Downtown San Diego with the Gaslamp Quarter as the heart of the night life, the Marina District activating the waterfront, Little Italy leaning into its namesake, and East Village where Petco Park brings Padre fans together.
Private and public initiatives are turning Downtown San Diego spaces into places. The Horton Campus is a project spanning seven city blocks and the Makers Quarter is a revitalized area for artists and innovators. The newly opened Rady Shell is an iconic destination for music lovers and the Portside Pier is a successful public-private partnership to activate the shoreline experience with food and beverage. These are just a few examples the BDA Study Tour delegation will explore.
