The Gaslamp Quarter is a historic area of downtown San Diego that has some of the oldest buildings (from 1880 to 1910) in San Diego. Of course, there are replicas of the historic Gas street lamps the area is named after.
The Gaslamp Quarter spans an area 8 blocks long and 2 blocks wide, and in it, there are dozens of restaurants (some in this journal), hotels, bars and nightclubs.
The hotels are much more expensive in the Gaslamp Quarter, than even just 5 minutes away on Harbor Island. If you are going to visit and stay in the Gaslamp Quarter, that might be okay, but there is much more to see. However, don't miss the Gaslamp Quarter during your visit.
