Seaport Village – Not just for Tourists

Last week, I had a chance to meet some of the store managers and owners of several stores in Seaport Village through a blogger tour with some local bloggers. When I think of Seaport Village, I think of a place where tourists go, I was wrong, it is for locals, tourists and anyone who wants to enjoy the good things in life. There are some really good unique stores that this place has. I never realized that the stores were so tiny, I guess that is why it is called a village and I guess it really does take a village to make a place great. Here are a few places I visited:

Support Independent Books. I can't stress this enough. Here is the story of one of the oldest bookstores in San Diego.

The Tinsmith is a great little place to get any home decoration especially if you like metal work. They have a good selection of Mexican art and Dia de los Muertos items.

I didn't realize that there were so many kinds of mugs and tumblers available. They are durable and made in the USA.

Visited the Tervis store. Tervis have the best water bottles ever. You can personalize them and they are made in the USA.

This place has mountains of fudge and candy. You can watch them make everything there. It is a pretty cool little shop.

Seaport Coffee and Fudge Factory – The fudge is handmade what else is there to say? In fact, most of their items in their display cases are handmade. Yum
