    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 ;)

    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.

    We went there couple times, both at night. Although we were with two grade school age children, we felt pretty safe walking around the streets in the area.

    There are plenty of restaurants to choose from, but many of them seem to fill up pretty quickly during weekends -- reservations recommended. Oh, and do leave some space in your stomach, as there are several sweet shops (chocolate, ice cream, etc.).

    In general, if you're looking for a good Mexican restaurant or more touristy souvenir shops, I'd go to Old Town, but Gaslamp Quarter seems to have more variety and upscale restaurants.

    Note: There is a web site hosted by the local association that lists all restaurants along with area maps, which was handy.

    Well, it may be the most touristic part of San Diego, but there are definitely some nice things to explore in the neighborhood. Definitely come here for fun bars or good restaurants... you just have to be okay with navigating crowds in the spring/summer months.

    The Gaslamp Quarter is a great place for nightlife. There's not much to do for kids. You can head over to Horton Plaza for shopping.

    Gaslamp Quarter is the heart of San Diego, easily the most popular district in the San Diego. About 16 blocks. include the PETCO Park, home of the San Diego Padres i

    Thumbs Up:
    + Some of the best clubs and lounge are located here
    + Many restaurant and shopping store
    + The Nicest hotel of San Diego are in this district
    + Walking distance to the pier.
    + Many events going it on.

    Thumbs Down:
    - Street parking is very hard to find.
    - No public free parking
    - All hotels are pricey, the most expensive in San Diego

    Note:
    * Many hotels here charge a lot for their parking rate some as much as $30 a day !

    My Two Cents,
    Gaslamp is doubt when most people go to San Diego would had spent some time there, if you are sport nuts, you would definite head there no doubt or those who like to shopped in upscale store and also enjoy a great view. But if you have the family or budget traveler you could skip this and spend more time in elsewhere of the city.

    A very lively spot in sd. The bars, clubs and lounges are pretty much walking distance from each other here which is the nice part but it's fairly small.

    A meeting of cosmopolitan eateries and entertainment spots with the blend of our own Horton Plaza shopping and Marina in the backdrop, that is the downtown Gaslamp area. There is a type of cuisine for every palate and every budget!

    If you want nightlife, this is the place to go. There is local limo service that i would recommend if you are going downtown.

    This is where the nightlife action is! A huge variety of restaurants, many upscale, where you can sit outside on a patio for your meal, with a European atmosphere. A great place to just walk around and enjoy being in the heart of downtown, not far from the harbor. Horton Plaza is also nearby with many shops and eateries as well.

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.
