2014 UPDATED Streetwise San Diego Map - Laminated City Center Street Map of San Diego, California - Folding pocket size travel map with integrated trolley lines & stations

This map covers the following areas:
Main San Diego Map 1:18,000
San Diego Area Map 1:55,000
Old Town Map 1:23,000
La Jolla Map 1:28,000

Welcome to San Diego, the second largest city in California. Mexico, the Pacific Ocean, the Anza-Borrego Desert and the Laguna Mountains surround San Diego and are all contributing factors to the ideal climate. With seventy miles of beaches, the Gaslight District, Sea World Adventure, LEGOLAND, La Jolla shopping and the San Diego Zoo; whatever your pleasure, San Diego is the ultimate playground for the whole family. To help get the most out of your visit, carry the STREETWISE® map of San Diego.

Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Yes, the zoo is a must see. Over 4,000 animals, living in habitats that rival Mother Nature herself, create one of the best animal experiences you’ll ever find. The Panda bears, on loan from China, are a big draw, but there is so much to see here that even if you miss these black and white fluff balls your day will be full.

Balboa Park, where the zoo is located, has many other attractions you’ll want to include — the Spanish Village Arts Center-35 art studios in a recreated Spanish town square, the Timken Museum-a jewel of a small museum with European Old Masters' paintings, House of Pacific Relations — historic cottages host cultural festivals, San Diego Aerospace Museum — take a simulated walk in space, The Old Globe and Junior Theatre-offering performances for all ages throughout, Hall of Champions Sports Museum-from Ted Williams to Tony Hawk, the San Diego Museum of Art-the regions oldest and largest, the Museum of Man-devoted to anthropology (more exciting than it sounds) and the Japanese Friendship Garden. That’s just a partial list. There’s also Butterfly rides, a carousel, lawn bowling, a miniature railroad you can ride and, of course, the Spreckles Organ Pavilion. Walk along the Prado Walkway around the Casa del Prado and admire the Spanish Colonial architecture. These buildings were part of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition celebrating the completion of the Panama Canal.

After Balboa Park, it’s nice to take the scenic drive marked by blue and yellow signs with a white seagull. This route will take you through a majority of the sites of San Diego and is a pleasant way to spend three or more hours touring the area. Or you can hop on the Blue line trolley and take a trip to Tijuana. The 45 minute trolley ride takes you right to the border crossing at San Ysidro, just across the border from Tijunana. Once you pass customs you can pick up the Border Shuttle (look for the big blue busses) and for $1.00 ride into the center of town. Don’t forget your passport if you plan to visit Mexico.

The area inset on the STREETWISE® San Diego Map will navigate you in and around the city region to places like San Diego International Airport, Pacific Beach, Coronado Island, Point Loma, La Jolla, and the University of California at San Diego. You’ll also find enlarged inset maps featuring Old Town and a detailed street map of La Jolla. A complete index of streets, hotels, points of interest, shopping, education, culture, transportation and parks is clearly listed on the map.

About STREETWISE® Maps

STREETWISE® is the first map to be designed with modern graphics and is the originator of the laminated, accordion-fold map format. We've set the standard that every map company has imitated but never duplicated. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable, to make you feel safe in a place where you've never been before and to enable you to experience a familiar place more fully.

The company was founded in 1984 by Michael Brown, who had been in international publishing for many years, setting up subsidiaries for textbook publishers. In the 1970's, Brown traveled extensively throughout Africa, India, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. Brown would take a large paper map, cut out the city center, folded it up and slip it into his pocket, thus preventing him from looking like a tourist in areas where discretion is the better part of travel. This was his tool for surviving.

After many years on the road, Brown settled back in New York and decided to start his own business, based on the adaptations he had made to maps in his travels. His goal was to give someone the ability to navigate easily in unfamiliar terrain.

He started with a new map format: the accordion fold. Such a simple idea, but at the time it was revolutionary. No more struggling to fold an awkward, oversized paper map. This new format would enable the user to blend in like a native, instead of stick out like a tourist. Brown then added lamination to ensure that the map would be a lasting tool.

More important than the format was the design of the map itself. It had to be a map that not only succeeded above and beyond any map he had used, but was esthetically appealing as well. The look of it had to be as striking as the functionality. Color was introduced in a way that was never seen before in a map - vivid purple for water, soothing gray for the background of street grids, gold to highlight elements of the map. Clarity, conciseness and convenience in a very stylish package.

Building the business was a 24 hour job. Brown sold the maps during the day, zipping around Manhattan making deliveries on his Harley Davidson. At night he packed the orders and did the design work. More titles were added, each title requiring months of research and design.

Today, STREETWISE® produces over 130 titles for major destinations, regions and countries throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom and Asia. We have grown from the back of a motorcycle to selling millions of maps around the world.

Yet each title is still painstakingly researched and updated. STREETWISE® is one of the only, if not THE only map company that conducts research by walking or driving an area to ensure accuracy. After all, what good is the map if what you hold in your hands doesn't match what you see on the street sign? This lengthy fact checking results in superior accuracy; in effect, we've done the work, now you have the adventure.

In the end, it's not about the map, it's about getting out and finding your own authentic experience wherever you go. It's about being in a city or a region and discovering things that you never thought you would find. You can do this if you have confidence and you have confidence if you have a great map. STREETWISE® is the great map that you need.
