San Diego Inspiration from Alamo

Explore Downtown San Diego

It's easy to organise Car rental in San Diego. The wonderful downtown district is just three miles from San Diego International Airport, so you'll be enjoying the sights in no time – especially if you've selected our 'skip the counter' option when booking. For a real flavour of the city's amazing naval history, take a stroll from San Diego Enbarcadero – a busy cruise ship hub – to the pretty waterfront shopping and dining hub of Seaport Village. Be sure to stop at the famous USS Midway Museum, once the largest ship in the world, and the longest serving aircraft carrier in the history of the U.S.

Historical Attractions in Old Town San Diego

No driving holiday here is complete without a trip to the Old Town. A San Diego rental car can take you from the modern city by the bay to this fascinating historical hub in as little as 10 minutes. Located in the north, Old Town San Diego State Historic Park includes many museums and attractions that are free to the public. Visit the 1825 Casa de Estudillo, one of the finest adobe haciendas in the state, view a rare original stagecoach at the Wells Fargo Museum, and see a scale model of 19th-century Old Town at the reconstructed Robinson-Rose House.

Check out the Beautiful La Jolla Region

Those with a passion for the outdoors will fall in love with La Jolla, the glamorous seaside area of San Diego known for its rugged coastline. Drive to Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and take on the beautiful trails that snake past pine trees and sandstone canyons, or relax and play golf at the world-class Torrey Pines Golf Course perched on top of the sea cliffs. For panoramic views, take your San Diego hire car to La Jolla Cove for sweeping vistas of the sea. Finally, don’t forget the option of a one-way car rental from Alamo Rent A Car. If you plan to road trip up the coast, you can simply drop off your vehicle at one of our many other California branches.
