San Diego is also known for its military and naval presence. The Maritime Museum of San Diego in San Diego Bay harbors several historical marine vessels. This museums boat collection includes: Star of India- an iron bark from 1863, Berkeley- a ferryboat from 1898, Madea- a steam yacht that served in both world wars, and several others. Nearby is the USS Midway Museum. The USS Midway is a large aircraft carrier that served 47 years before becoming a museum. It is named for the WWII Battle of Midway, a decisive American naval victory over the Japanese. Between 1945 and 1955 the USS Midway was the largest ship in the world. It is the only remaining WWII-era aircraft carrier in its class.

Old Town San Diego State Historic Park:

The San Diego Presidio was a military outpost, and the first European settlement on the Pacific Coast. Between 1769 and 1850 San Diego was controlled by Spain, Mexico, and eventually the United States. During this time the city of San Diego was fairly small and based around the Presidio. In the 1860s, Alonzo Horton urged San Diego’s residents to move closer to the coast to help the city’s shipping industry. Many San Diegans moved to “New Town,” which is present day Downtown San Diego. The old establishment became known as “Old Town.” By the early 1870s, New Town was the city’s dominant area. The Old Town State Historic Park preserves Old Town, as it existed over 150 years ago. Old Town contains several museums and landmarks, including: Casa de Estudillo, Whaley House, Black Hawk Smithy & Stable, First San Diego Courthouse, and Mason Street School.

Cabrillo National Monument:

In 1542, Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo landed in San Diego Bay. This was the first time a European set foot on the present day West Coast of the United States. Cabrillo, a Portuguese-born explorer, claimed the land all the way up to the Russian River for Spain.  At the southern tip of Point Loma is a statue honoring the discoverer of San Diego. The 14,000-pound monument was carved in 1939 by Alvaro de Bree of Portugal and donated to the US. There is a plaque on the monument detailing Cabrillo’s exploits. Also, a nearby museum screens a film that depicts Cabrillo’s voyage along the Pacific Coast. The site became a National Monument in 1913.

Mission San Diego de Alcalá:

Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcalá was the first Franciscan mission built in the present day United States area of New Spain. It was the original and anchoring mission on California’s El Camino Real. Father Junípero Serra founded the mission in 1769, the same year as Gaspar de Portolà founded the San Diego Presidio. The mission was built to convert the Native Kumeyaay people to Roman Catholicism. The current church on the mission site was planned by Father Jose Bernardo Sanchez and built in 1808. It was severely damaged after the Mexican War of Independence and the Mexican-American War. In the 1880s Father Anthony Ubach worked to restore the old building. Restoration work continues today, as the mission is now a US National Historic Landmark.
