This beautiful city, street scene, architectural wonderland is nothing like it used to be. An occasional homeless person is to be expected in any metropolitan area, but the elaborate camps of homeless people lining the streets is nothing short of shocking. Human waste, litter, sleeping bags and truly deranged, mentally ill people shouting obscenities is what you can expect to... More

I'm sure the Gaslamp district really comes to life in the evening given the number of bars. During the day it is still interesting to see the architecture, and the Horton Park shopping centre is closeby. If not eating, it would probably take no more than 1/2 hour to walk the district.

I was expecting charming old buildings, some trendy shops, maybe a few art galleries, some restaurants etc. I wanted to do a little Christmas shopping and hoped this might be a place to do it. There are a few old... More

Lots of restaurants. Main time to visit is at night when the lights turned on. Here, they have the Ghirardelli Chocolate shop and Westfield.
