    If you like nightlife the Gaslamp Quarter is the place to go. Many fine and fun restaurants and bars. You can take the trolley there from many of the stops along the way rather than driving.
    Take in a game at Petco Park if baseball is of interest.
    See Seaport Village,Convention Center and the USS Midway is close by all accessible by the trolley

    Downtown San Diego is as easy as getting on the train (Coaster) and taking a relaxing ride down the coast. (The ride is about 50 minutes and cost only $5.50 to get there per person)

    Excellent night life and restaurants just minutes from Valley Veiw Casino, and a quick drive from the Lake House

    Restaurants. Nightclubs. Lounges. Bars. Shops. The most iconic sign in Downtown is the entrance sign into the Gaslamp. This area encompasses about a mile of everything I mentioned above. Totally walk able. Plenty of parking options. Some historical spots as many buildings in the Gaslamp have great stories behind them.

    I would describe The Gaslamp Quarter as "The Bourbon Street of Southern California. This is an area of great architectural charm, its streets lined with original nineteenth-century buildings and others moved in from other parts of the San Diego, all restored to their original exuberance. Restaurants, shops and clubs occupy former brothels and saloons. A random walk will give you a sense of the place and it's only a few blocks in each direction - enjoy the nice buildings, do a little shopping and have a wonderful meal.
    At night lots of bars and pubs of all types- Hipster, trendy, classy!

    The streets are paved beautifully and there are plenty of taxis and pedicabs to get you around at low price. You can also take a trolley ride.

    This is the best hot spot for restaurants, clubs and night-life scene in San Diego. Friday and Saturday nights are the most crowded. Go Mon-Wed to beat the crowds. Walk 5th avenue - you will love the people watching!

    The gaslamp quarter offers a lot of nightlife. You can find many bars, lounges and restaurants here. I can recommend Fred's Mexican Cafe, where you can get delicious mexican food. Also, if you like hookahs, there's a hookah bar nearby ;)

    This is the downtown and the main tourist district in the city! There are lots of great restaurants to choose from and wander around this historic area and get a feel for the city!

    Looking for a night out on the town or a nice dinner, this is the spot to hit. There is even the famous Horton Plaza Mall located here if you are looking to do a little shopping.

Description:

The hippest area in San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter is alive with activity almost every day (and night) of the week. From restaurants to bars to fashion to art to movies to playhouses and other fun activities, this really is the heart of fun in the city. Bordered by the water and downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp is home to some of the nicest hotels and swankiest hot spots San Diego has to offer, including the Planet Hollywood concert venue and Nobu Sushi restaurant. Whether you're looking for a casual bite to eat or table service at the hottest club in town, be sure to stop by for a hot night out on the town. Nearby Horton Plaza houses major department stores and boutiques in its maze of bridges and walkways.
