    If you go, be sure to get the audio guide tour. The audio is extremely well done and provides lots of background and interesting stories. The house jam packed with artifacts, all with a story. It is small but definitely worth visiting.

    RB brewery is in the middle of nowhere in La Jolla stuck between some highways. But if you are in the neighborhood it well worth to go there for some beers and burgers. They brew their own beer that is actually very good, especially the more potent ones. Burgers are ok. Service also ok. I wouldn´t gothere for the food just fore some beer. Nice happy hour and evening happy hour 09pm - 12pm.

    We walked into this gallery on our way to dinner. It is located conveniently in downtown. We were warmly welcomed when we entered. It is a small gallery and the displays were very enjoyable. If you have a little time when you are in the area, I would suggest stopping in.

    It’s an exceptionally beautiful building located in a prominent avenue of the lovely Gaslamp area.

    Three storeys plus a basement have different uses, including a luxurious apartment on the higher floors.

    Completed in 1882 and renovated in recent years, it has a delightful profile. Ornate aspects are grand stone craft and double pinnacle spires.

    When you are walking on 5th Avenue you can't miss this standout building. I haven't been inside but the outside is certainly striking.

    After finishing up my workday, I left my hotel room and took my own personal walking tour of downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter & really enjoyed myself. This 1888 four-story building, with elements of Victorian baroque architecture, is definitely a standout memory of my walk. It originally housed the Louis Bank of Commerce at 835 Fifth Ave until 1893. Then, Isidor Louis opened Maison Doree, an oyster bar that became a favorite of Wyatt Earp, the legendary lawman of the American West & a participant of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. The upper floors of this building later became the Golden Poppy Hotel, which was ran by a fortune teller named Madame Cora. it’s located on a charming, feel good street with several outdoor cafés.

    The best $29 I spent in San Diego having the hosts Sam.. Rafael.. Danni and Cynthia were a blast.. Totally worth the money altho no party bus.. Food or party favors as advertised..walking all the way so we're comfy shoes.. But no cover.. No waiting in lines.. Make sure ur over 21 and have your ID ready and don't get distracted inside the clubs because there is no good system for letting the club crawlers know they re moving on.. So figure out ur own system or get left behind.. You do get one free welcome shot tickets at first three venues.. Not the last one. Just sayin

    Honestly one of the best bar crawls I’ve ever done! Joe and Serina were absolutely outstanding! Incredible hosts and made sure it was an outstanding time! The bars were very well picked! The price was perfect! Paid for itself at the first bar! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great time!

    I decided to try this place on a recent visit to San Diego and I’m glad I did. If you enjoy Irish food then you need to eat here. I had the Irish Sampler which consisted of Guinness Stew, shepherd pie, corn beef and cabbage, and what I call Irish chicken and dumplings. Paired with a pint of Guinness, was just was I needed. It was wonderful.
