Lots of places to eat and drink

The gaslight quarter is full of restaurants and bars. It is great to wander around as the area is very relaxed.

A very good place to grab something to eat and party. This is definitely a place to go for an exciting nightlife. A large crowd and a lot of bars. Seems to cater a lot to the tourist and can get pricey but, if you want to have a great night on the town then this is the area to... More

Ticked a box really. Had to see the Gaslamp Quarter whilst staying in San Diego but to be honest you could drive through at night and say you have done it. Its very lively at night if you want entertainment and lots of choice in restaurants but we saw more interesting buildings whilst we were in San Fransisco. It was... More

Exciting to see a small city area (I'm from NYC so everything is a small city to me). Area has some great spots and nightlife and restaurants however go a block or two off the main street and it is homeless people everywhere....many are yelling and seem violent. I was with teenagers and we decided to just drive through and... More

Unexpectedly disappointing. Homeless people everywhere, but prices still high. Three hundred dollar a night hotels that have homeless people almost right outside their door. Sidewalk restaurants with foul-smelling street side garbage cans just several feet away.

Be sure to spend some time dining, shopping and sightseeing at Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego's historic district. Be sure to get a picture in front of the Gaslamp sign that arcs over the street.

For my son's 30th Birthday he put together a trip to San Diego and their Gaslamp District!! What a great choice this proved to be. The clubs, bars and restaurants in Gaslamp are a wonderful collection of options....and the shops that line the streets makes this a real treat for any sort of tourist. Beyond that, the proximity to Petco... More

I've been coming to Gaslamp District since I was a kid, when we only drove through to get to the airport. Its changed a lot since the 1960s, once a derelict area with loads of transients, now a great destination for entertainment, restaurants and clubs. Loads of interesting places to go day or night and especially on weekend nights !... More

I've always wanted to see what gaslamp quarters is all about and majority of what I saw were bars. It's great for nightlife....you'll see clubs. restaurants, and some clothing stores as well. Nearby Parking (daytime) is $10 and is good for 12 hours
