There are so many restaurants and bars in such a small place its so hard to choose where to go! We wandered down there every night to try somewhere different and found some great places!

Beautiful architecture, lots of good food and shops for souvenirs. Another lady and I were with two 18 year old girls and we didn't feel very safe after 10 pm. We called a über instead of walking back to hotel. Go early enough to leave before 10.

This street is just full of restaurants and bars to choose from. At night there are tons of people. We did run into a belligerent drunk but for the most part I felt quite safe. There were families with children but mostly I saw tourists and young professionals enjoying themselves.

Recently spent some time in the area and enjoyed a tasty lunch at one of the restaurants. Good area and lots of restaurants and shopping/stores if that's something you are interested in. Plan on lots of walking.

Gaslamp had tons of things going on. There are bars and restaurants lining the streets just filed with fun people and music. We ended up eating at Savilla while we were there and just people watched the whole time. Kept us pretty entertained. Check this place out, I loved it.

This was our first visit to San Diego and had heard people speaking about the Gaslamp district. We headed over there and were very impressed. So clean and unthreatening. 5th Ave was very unique in its atmosphere, huge number of restaurants and bars. Really lovely area (of any city).

This was my wife and I's first visit to the San Diego area and let me tell you we enjoyed it so much we are planing to return this August. Wyndham Harbor Lights in the Gaslight District is where we stayed. This hotel is in the Gaslight District and we highly recommend both the hotel and the area. Folks here... More

Not many more lively places in the country to match this part of downtown San Diego. Bars, clubs, restaurants and smoking lounges offer an attractive and high-energy locale with something for everyone.

A lot of things going on constantly. Bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, hotels and people people people. Just taking a stroll is an experience looking at people. Great - day and night.
