Ok I guess if you want to eat out or go partying
Jul 2021 • Couples
Went there on Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Mostly restaurants and bars. A lot open up at 5pm. The area closed the streets and let businesses add more outdoor seating with wooden patios where cars used to park. Has potential but lacking in my opinion. Overall, expected more for this well talked about area.

Enjoy the Ride

Loved taking the Trolley from Old Town to Gaslamp. Not much in Gaslamp as places/streets closed due to COVID. AMAZING gelato at the Chocolate Cremerie. Excellent service and price for the amount given. Great staff recommendations too!

Horrible experience in Gaslamp
Apr 2021
This area is terrible. We were just there last night before the shooting. Horrible. Lots of homeless people begging. Restaurants closed that were supposed to be open according to trip advisor. Streets smelled like urine. Not safe. Wouldn’t visit. Today we saw on news there was a shooting there! 5 hours after we left. Never had a a drink or ate. Will not return.

Do Not Dine Outside!
Oct 2020 • Business
Was eating dinner outside tonight at Morton’s with my wife and was shot in the back twice with a BB gun. The police are looking for the 2 guys but you should definitely not dine outside at least in the Gaslamp.

Plenty to see and do is the Gaslamp Quarter for everyone
Nov 2019
Whether you like nightlife, great food, or just a great area to walk around, the Gaslamp Quarter hits all the right notes. I've visited San Diego multiple times and I almost always stay in the Gaslamp Quarter. It's close to the convention center, plenty of eating and shopping venues, and the ballpark.

There is something to do at all hours of day and night. This area of San Diego is very walkable. It's safe and fun. If visiting San Diego you should visit and stay in this area.

Some nice architecture
Apr 2019
We walked all the way up 4th, 5th and 6th avenues below Broadway for a couple of hours and found interesting buildings to see. We had a self walk guide which was useful and made us look out for particular details. The area was pretty quiet and we felt safe all the time.

Many Restaurants and Bars
Mar 2020
Gaslamp Quarter is a great area for restaurants and bars. One may walk up and down 4th, 5th or 6th Avenues and find restaurants with a variety of cousines. There are shops in the areal; however, we were not there to shop. Just be warned that there are many people in the area looking for a handout and I felt more comfortable walking there before dark.
