Although it's not clearly marked, this is a short walk from the Amtrak station. This theatre has lots of great offerings and is close to different sorts of restaurants and shopping. Make sure to keep a map handy, as there are some sketchy areas.

Attended the San Diego Civic Theater's production of The Sound of Music. The cast was outstanding and their performances were spectacular. The orchestration was superb. A timeless classic from Rodgers and Hammerstein that definitely lived up to expectations. A season seat subscriber since 2004, this...More

This venue has been here for a long time and could use a makeover. The wear and tear is starting to show. The theater was packed - and there was a fare share of gentle pushing and nudging. The seats in the first balcony had...More

Coming in November for the Boston-type Half Marathon,. What would be a few choices for an economical/ inexpensive hotel "near" the start (which I understand will be at the Civic Center)?.. Thank you.
