San Diego


Gaslamp Quarter

The historic heart of downtown San Diego is the 16 ½- block historic Gaslamp Quarter, an urban, Victorian- charm dining and entertainment district that captures the lively spirit of a bygone era.

Home of more than 70 restaurants, 40 retail shops and 20 nightclubs, guests can discover cuisine that reaches the far corners of the globe, entertainment that spans the decades, stores that provide intricacies not found anywhere else and much more.

Throughout the year, the Gaslamp Quarter becomes a giant outdoor block- party during several annual major events, including the Annual Mardi Gras Celebration and Parade, held on “ Fat Tuesday “ in February; Sham Rock, a St. Patrick’s day block party in March; the Easter Bonnet Parade in April; Annual Fiesta Cinco de Mayo in May; Taste of Gaslamp, downtown’s favorite eating extravaganza in June, and Street Scene, California’s largest, most diverse urban food and music festival, held each September.
