Come and explore San Diego's Liberty Station, which was once known as “the cradle of the Navy”. Over 2 million men and women trained here when, from 1923 to 1997, it served as a Naval Training Center (NTC). Today, it is home to a beautiful Arts District located in the historic buildings that once housed, fed, and trained sailors. 

Solve clues and check out modern museums, a food hall and a brewery, performing arts groups, and public art. All while discovering how young men — and eventually women — went from civilian to sailor.
