About Gaslamp Quarter

Historic Gaslamp Quarter is nestled close to the waterfront of San Diego Bay, in Southern California. The bustling streets are lined with Victorian era buildings and skyscrapers creating an impressive, eclectic backdrop. During daylight hours, independent shops, galleries, concert venues and museums strive to keep all visitors entertained. Gaslamp Quarter is also home to the city’s finest eateries, and with numerous bars and nightclubs, it is the epicentre of San Diego’s after dark scene.

A fun packed day or evening can be spent exploring the Gaslamp Quarter. All visitors can enjoy a trip to Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House or the educational exhibitions at the New Children’s Museum. One of San Diego’s most popular attractions is the USS Midway Museum. It offers travellers the chance to climb on board the historic aircraft carrier and experience the impressive flight deck views of San Diego’s skyline. Fly a jet in the realistic flight simulators, or sit in the aircraft cockpit to discover how “Top Gun” pilots train. As the sun sets over San Diego Bay, the sophisticated crowd heads to the Gaslamp Quarter for an evening of fine dining, theatre shows, music and dance. The sidewalks offer al fresco dining, and local breweries provide the perfect excuse to discover San Diego craft beer.

Gaslamp Quarter is eight blocks long and two blocks wide. It’s easy to navigate on foot, by bike and public transportation. It is located between the MTS Blue, Orange and Green Line Trolley Stations making it accessible from most of San Diego. Bikeshare schemes operate in the neighbourhood. Visitors preferring to drive will find affordable parking in the quarter. Shared rides, Taxis and Uber services are all available and can be booked via a variety of mobile apps.

Development of the Gaslamp Quarter began in the 1860s when the neighbourhood was referred to as “New Town”. From 1880-1900 the area was known as the Stingaree, it was lined with gambling halls, saloons and bordellos. This trend continued well into the mid-1900s when it became infamous as the “Sailors Entertainment District”. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the area had a resurgence. Victorian buildings were preserved, and skyscrapers and office buildings began to appear. Today it is a charming neighbourhood of San Diego with some of the best architecture, shops, restaurants and pubs in Southern California.
