During the early 1900s the Baja California city grew into a center of nightclubs and cabarets, when U.S. prohibition laws drove Usians in search of nightlife across the border.

Cultural World
One of the popular places in the city to visit is the Tijuana Cultural Center, known as ‘The Ball,’ which hosts art exhibits and outdoor concerts in the spring and summer. The Museum of California showcases the history of the Baja California Peninsula with a spotlight on ethnic groups, natural attractions, missions and Prohibition-era tourism.

A good option for visitors to get around is the Tijuana Trolley which stops at all the tourist sites, including the cultural center and shopping centers.
