The Gaslamp Quarter

gaslampDiscover the festive spirit of San Diego’s legendary historic Gaslamp Quarter. The Gaslamp Quarter is a 16½ block historical neighborhood in downtown San Diego. The name “Gaslamp” is in reference to the gas lamps that were common in San Diego in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The area is listed as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places and includes 94 historic buildings. Its main period of development began in 1867, when Alonzo Horton bought the land in hopes of creating a new city center closer to the bay and chose 5th Avenue as its main street. The area now boasts over 200 restaurants, bars, nightclubs, lounges, and countless boutiques, art galleries and shops. Enjoy sidewalk cafes and open air restaurants, jazz clubs, late night dancing, resident artists, distinctive hotels and micro- breweries. The Gaslamp has definitely established itself both as a playground for hip, eclectic San Diegans and as an elite urban destination. Mass Transit routes 3, 11, 120/Orange Trolley Line
