Old Town Trolley Aims to Make Waterfront a Signature Destination for Visitors to the Golden State
Arroyo Grande, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/02/2016 -- Residents of California are known for their love of the coast, their affinity for Disneyland, and their hankering for all things avocado. The Golden State is truly one of a kind, with wonderful attractions and places to see up and down the 840 miles of coastline that stretch from Mexico to Oregon. In April 2015, Old Town Trolley Tours opened a brand new visitor center on the San Diego Embarcadero; as a part of the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan, a $228 Million Dollar Project to improve the San Diego Waterfront and Embarcadero. Their goal is to make the Waterfront a world-renowned destination for visitors to San Diego, a true must-see. In recent months the Port of San Diego has made great strides towards improvement – a process that has been in the works for 30 years. Moreover, Old Town Trolley Tours has partnered with California Travel Center to bring a world class visitor center to the waterfront as well as bring awareness to many of the other unique attractions San Diego has to offer.
The waterfront redesign is on the verge of approval, pending the word of Civic San Diego and an appellate court ruling affirming a lower federal court. As a mixed-use project, the waterfront would be dotted with hotels, open space, restaurants, and retail/office space. Increased tension about the project surrounds the closing off of access to the water. However, this is a concern that is addressed in the plans, according to Gary London of the London Real Estate Group (San Diego waterfront redesign on verge of approval): "I think that this will be a classic coastal development project that will absolutely not wall off the people from the water."
For many years, California Travel Center has helped California residents and out-of-towners discover the great cities and attractions in the state. Their recent partnership with Old Town Trolley Tours underscores their commitment to bringing people to the many sights and sounds California has to offer.
General Manager Joe Stennett spoke about the recent partnership with Old Town Trolley Tours, saying "Working with Old Town Trolley Tours is something all of us here at California Travel Center are excited for. Since day one, we have made it our goal to acquire the best brands in the business, and Old Town is truly emblematic of that.
