Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones - A Culinary Walking Tour of San Diego's Questionable Past

As one of the nation’s most haunted neighborhoods, the ghost stories of the Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones tour will have you looking over your shoulder for spirits that linger in the town.

Explore the Birthplace of California as you visit the Historic State Park of Old Town, San Diego. Here you will be brought back to a time when Mexicans ruled the area, and when the American frontiersmen came in for their claim of land.

Along the way, you will visit original adobe buildings - considered to be the first mansions in California, and one of San Diego's Historic Cemeteries.

San Diego's Old Town is known for its authentic Mexican food and has about 25 restaurants in the neighborhood.

The Tequila, Tacos and Tombstones will allow you to taste favorite San Diego dishes AND samples of popular cocktails (not all of the samples are tequila), so get your fiesta on!
