Gaslamp Quarter

Known as "the Historic Heart of San Diego,” the Gaslamp Quarter comprises 16-1/2 blocks of sidewalk cafes, jazz clubs, late-night dancing, residential/work lofts and micro-breweries. Just a short walk from the Convention Center in San Diego’s downtown, the district is replete with renovated turn-of-the-century Victorian architecture, home to boutiques, art galleries, specialty shops and more. Catch a ballgame at nearby Petco Park, make a reservation at any of the high-profile restaurants featuring celebrity chefs and enjoy some top-name entertainment at House of Blues San Diego on Fifth Avenue.
