Located at the historic heart of downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter brings the past to life with a modern twist. Beautiful Victorian homes and shops highlight the neighborhood’s colorful past. But beyond its architectural charm, the Gaslamp is a 16 ½ block stretch of premier shopping, dining and entertainment. In fact, after dark, the district becomes one of the most exciting urban destinations. In 1980, the Gaslamp Quarter was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it’s not uncommon to see smiling tourists enjoying a “Segway” tour. Voted the #1 thing to do in San Diego, exploring the Gaslamp neighborhood on a two-wheeled Personal Transporter or “Segway” is the latest craze.
