Whether you like nightlife, great food, or just a great area to walk around, the Gaslamp Quarter hits all the right notes. I've visited San Diego multiple times and I almost always stay in the Gaslamp Quarter. It's close to the convention center, plenty of eating and shopping venues, and the ballpark. There is something to do at all hours of day and night. This area of San Diego is very walkable. It's safe and fun. If visiting San Diego you should visit and stay in this area.

We walked all the way up 4th, 5th and 6th avenues below Broadway for a couple of hours and found interesting buildings to see. We had a self walk guide which was useful and made us look out for particular details. The area was pretty quiet and we felt safe all the time.

Gaslamp Quarter is a great area for restaurants and bars. One may walk up and down 4th, 5th or 6th Avenues and find restaurants with a variety of cousines. There are shops in the areal; however, we were not there to shop. Just be warned that there are many people in the area looking for a handout and I felt more comfortable walking there before dark.

Spent some time in the Gaslamp district following a tour. Lots to see and do. More restaurants and bars than you could ever visit. Plenty of shopping also. The only problem is parking, not nearly enough. I ended up parking in the conference center and walked over, just a short walk but $15.
