Walk along Highway 101 in Solana Beach and you might notice a series of plaques describing historical buildings.
During my most recent adventure in Solana Beach, I took photos of several buildings and plaques immediately south and north of Plaza Street/Lomas Santa Fe Drive. This stretch of highway was the coastal town’s main street a century ago.
To learn more about these and other historical buildings, and to view a variety of interesting old photographs, visit this page of the Solana Beach Civic And Historical Society. They’re the ones who created the plaques.
This first batch of photos is from the 100 south block of Highway 101. All of these small, modest buildings are now home to local businesses, including an eatery and salon.
The next three photographs were taken on the 200 north block of Highway 101…
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!
You can easily explore Cool San Diego Sights by using the search box on my blog’s sidebar. Or click a tag! There are thousands upon thousands of photos for you to enjoy!

Hi, A fellow Board member of SBCHS just forwarded me your article. It is fabulous. As you may have noticed each historical plaque has a QR code attached to it which takes you to our website for the history of the building. We have a free self guided walking tour of all 3 historical areas. Get it at the Chamber of Commerce near the entrance to Fletcher Cove or in the kios at the train station next time you are up our way. In Eden Gardens enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the historic Mexican restaurants. Thank you so much for your coverage of our City’s historical buildings.
Board member, SBCHS
