Old Town demonstrates life in the Mexican and early American periods of 1821 to 1872 (including 5 original adobe buildings). There are shops, several outdoor cafes and live music. Since pups are not allowed inside the buildings, you can shop at the many outdoor retail kiosks throughout the town. There are several food concessions where you can order the food and then take it to an outdoor table. After walking around, relax with your best friend by listening to a variety of live music. If your dog wants to see more trees and green grass, take a quick drive over to Presidio Park which is close to Old Town (see Parks).
