We found ourselves hanging out at the Gaslamp Quarters every evening. A large variety of shops and restaurants to choose from and Ghiaradelli's is a must (the sundae's were amazing good).

The Gaslamp is a must see when visiting San Diego – historic buildings, lots of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, shops, and it’s full of energy. Park at Horton Plaza, our urban mall, for 3 hours of free parking, with free validation. It’s just a 10-15 minute walk to the Gaslamp. Or, you can take the trolley: http://www.sdmts.com/trolley/comiccon.asp If you’re going to... More

Cute and quaint with an amazing array of fine dining restaurants. This is one of the oldest and must visit parts of the city. Definitely adds to the charm of San Diego. The Gas Lamp Quarter is so small that you can cover the entire area by foot. Charmed!!

i was staying in San Diego for a work conference and the hotel had regular shuttles to and from Gaslamp, so a few of us decided on a whim to hop on and find something other than the expensive hotel food for dinner. We were let off on a busy corner where the street was lined with patio bars and... More

This is a great part of San Diego to explore. Lots of shopping, dining, bars, etc. Easy to get to on the Trolley which drops you off right by Petco Park entrance.

A great place to look at while in San Diego. Gaslamp Quarter is a historical part of the city & has some good cafes near by. It is clean & tidy. As always the people of San Diego are warm, helpful & friendly. Love the place

Ah San Diego, this little jewel in California. The Quarter is crowded not only during the weekends, Everyday you will see beautiful people walking, drinking, laughing, enjoying to be in one of the best cities to visit in California. Try not to miss it. You won't get it.

I only gave it a two because there's certainly plenty of places to eat. Crowded, nonexistent parking, and not much to see. Unless you are under 30 and are itching for nightlife, don't waste your precious time. As soon as you do find a parking garage and make your way out onto the street you will realize you made a...

Lots of restaurants in one street, nearly all chains (Hard rock cafe etc) - this area was only created recently, and I just thought So What? We did find a great Persian restaurant, so the evening was fine, but it was hardly New Orleans or Marrakesh, or even Soho. Not really any atmosphere, just lots of kids dressed up for... More
