Walked around the Gaslamp Quarter with my husband. We checked out a couple of the shops and ate an early dinner at a pub style restaurant. The streets were just starting to come alive with people as were heading back to our hotel. Would be a great place to sit at one of the many restaurant patios, have a drink... More

I was expecting the Gaslamp district to be more than just restaurants and bars but for us, that was about it. It was a very good location to find a bunch of choices for lunch and so for that, we did visit twice during our trip to San Diego. As other reviewers have mentioned, I'm sure that it's a great...

We went during the day - not much to see and do except shop and go to bars/restaurants. Historic buildings were kind of neat but other than that I would recommend going in the evening for hitting bars, clubs, dining, etc.

This place is probably exciting on the weekends at night but during the day it's really just restaurants and bars which I'm sure you can find in most downtown cities across America.

An area full of life and buzzing with people. Lots of places to eat and trendy bars. We eat in a great Thai restaurant. There was a lot of bars selling special beers and ales. A great place for young people to party.

Gaslamp quarter, is pleasant enough and flat for easy walking. Plenty of shopping and cafes, but pricey. The most interesting places to visit are the restored Davies House - the oldest in downtown San Diego and the Chinese Historical Museum. Outside the Davies House, is a bronze model of Greyfriers Bobby as San Diego is twinned with Edinburgh. There was... More
