This is a great area of town where one can shop, eat, drink or just stroll around. There is pubs or restaurants for most tastes, and they are many within a short walk of each other. Really if you have the time I would call this a must stop in SD.

Visited in June 2013 for a week. Stayed at the Hotel Solamar (A Kimpton) property. Easy acces to shopping, restaurants, and the marina. Easy walk to the Midway museum as well. Saw a baseball game when we were there and it was right around the corner from the hotel. Would definitely stay there again.

The walking tour starting at the William Heath Davis home in the Gaslamp District was refused. The attendant asked for another $10.00 apiece in addition to the $457.30 we already paid for the cards. The district was not used much when San Diego was first founded. Most people went inland to Old Town. The house is said to be haunted... More

All the bars provide a wide range of choices in music, dancing and entertainment. Fun to stroll and people watch, socialize with friends or dance the night away. A must see for anyone spending time in this beautiful city.

Gaslamp Quarter is one of our favorite places to walk. It is always clean and great for people watching, eating, shopping or having a few cocktails. We feel very safe any place we walk day or night. If you can't find what you are looking for you might try some of the side streets. You may be surprised at what... More
