The historic Broadway Pier of San Diego was first constructed in 1919 and was the only concrete pier on the bay at that time. The pier has since enjoyed an eventful history and even hosted Queen Elizabeth's royal yacht, the Brittania, in 1983. The pier serves as a cruise ship terminal when both berths of the B Street Terminal are occupied. For the rest of the time, the Port Pavilion doubles up as an event venue for concerts, conferences and other events. The pier itself is open to the public on most days and hosts festivals, fairs and other cultural events. The Broadway Pier is simply a great place to enjoy panoramic views over the San Diego Bay, especially at sunset when the sky and ocean are brought to life by a myriad hues.
