We spent three days here for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and enjoyed every minute. Tons to do, all within walking distance and something for everyone. The restaurants are great, the entertainment was super and the shopping plentiful. Throw in Petco Park, SeaPort Village, and trains that can take you anywhere else and you have yourself the ideal vacation stop.

As we stayed in a hotel in this area, we decided to try several restaurants. Not sure if this was my luck but one restaurant was truly greasy, saved though by great table clothing. I was not impressed either with the ice cream place across the road for the same reason. Top marks purely because I enjoyed the general street... More

Stop in at gaslamp prior to a baseball game at Petco Park. Never again. Resturants are too price for the food and drinks. Cowboys is a good steak house, yet for the price of 1 meal you could go to your butcher and get at least 2 steaks, with the fixings. If you are a partying person, who likes to... More

Fun spot. Enjoy the different places to dine. Good service at the restaurants we ate at. I would highly recommend the cafe 21. Farm to table restaurant. Service and food were excellent. A bit of a wait but good.

Amazing number and variety of dining places. With San Diego being the U.S. Capital of Craft beers you will never run out of options. With Petco Park next door were The Padres go about their trade, the Gaslamp Quarter is the perfect place to celebrate after a game.

Great atmosphere with lots of bars and shops. Also visited last year during Comicon and it was heaving! Lots of interesting architecture if you look up too.

Visit San Diego for my first time after living in California for years. It's one of the must sunny cities in the world so it's awesome. But the Gaslamp quarter that I was told to visit was a disappointment. I have seen pub streets before and this is just like everyone else. Busy in the weekends so if you want... More

If you go to San Diego, do not miss a chance to visit the Gaslamp District. It's an area of old San Diego that has wonderful places to visit, shop and eat. The streetlights are old gas lamp style and the sidewalks like you have been transported back to the 50's. There are many places to shop and eat. Whatever... More

We visited the Gaslamp Quarter on two occasions during the day during our stay in San Diego and to be honest I couldn't wait to leave the area each time. I thought it would be full of quaint shops and buildings that sold interesting things but it has the same shops as you would find in the mall. Good supply... More
