Where to Live
While you might not live in the Gaslamp Quarter proper due to the commercial zoning, many of the blocks that surround the district are home to a thriving arts community with commercial spaces that were converted into lofts. In addition, many modern high-rise condominium buildings are within walking distance of the neighborhood with stunning panoramic views of the San Diego Bay, Pacific Ocean, and Coronado Island.
Where to Eat
This is one of the most active, thriving restaurant scenes in all of San Diego. You will find every type of food from French, Mexican, Spanish, Italian, Middle Eastern, South American, and much more. Many of the restaurants along 5th Avenue have outdoor seating, so you can enjoy a cocktail with a world-class meal while watching some very colorful locals and tourists enjoying the neighborhood.
What You'll See
The Gaslamp Quarter is host to many events and festivals including the Street Scene Music Festival, Mardi Gras in the Gaslamp, the ShamROCK music festival, and Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. The most famous event is Comic-Con, which takes place in July. The event is held at the San Diego Convention Center, which is directly at the end of 5th Avenue, the main street of the Gaslamp Quarter. Over 100,000 people attend Comic-Con and for three days straight you will see all sorts of people dressed as their favorite comic book hero.
Friday Night Fun
A Friday night in the neighborhood is electric with music, dancing, dining, and clubbing. The Gaslamp is the primary club scene in San Diego and it attracts many of the younger adults in addition to residents and tourists seeking five-star dining.
The Perfect Sunday
A perfect Sunday might include some shopping at Horton Plaza or a leisurely walk to the bay to visit Seaport Village, the Midway Museum, or Star of India. You can also walk along the bay on its trail that extends from Embarcadero all the way to Spanish Landing Park. Or you can relax at one of the many restaurants along the water's edge to watch the sunset over the ocean.
