This is the San Diego Maritime Museum. In the foreground, the Star of India, adjacent to the left, the Steam Ferry Berlekey, in front of that, the B-39 Soviet Sub, behind the submarine, you can see the rigging of the Californian and the San Salvador. One entrance ticket allows you to tour all the boats; open 365 days a year.

The San Diego County Administration Center, a historic Beaux-Arts Spanish Revival-style building completed in 1938, sits in the middle of the Park.

If you want dinner after that, keep walking and you'll find yourself in Little Italy.
