San Diego downtown or gaslamp district?

Hi,

Are both good areas? Gaslamp or downtown marina area?

Thank you

The gaslamp is a few streets in our small downtown.

The "marina" area is a few streets in downtown facing the bay.

They are within a short walk of each other. I prefer the views of the marina area.

On weekends I wouldn't want to be in the very busy gaslamp.

IF busy partying is your scene then you may prefer it!

You can use Google to see all locations on maps.

Neither areas are on the ocean if that is important to you--though the beaches are only +/- 12-20 minutes away from downtown with a car or taxi, depending upon which beach community you choose.

We found an apt close to seaworld. As we have a car it should be fine.

Cheers
