3. Gaslamp Quarter District itinerary - hotels, things to see and do - sponsored links

Downtown San Diego Gaslamp Quarter District street sceneSan Diego's Gaslamp Quarter District covers over 16 city blocks and includes the elegant Horton Plaza shopping mall. On the edges of the Gaslamp are Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres baseball team; the San Diego Convention Center; Downtown San Diego and the harbor.

If you choose a hotel here, you can easily  walk to enough things to see and do to fill several days and nights.

There has long been a decidedly Italian flavor to the Gaslamp restaurants but you will also find excellent seafood, Mexican, Asian, Irish and steak houses. My favorites are Kiyo's Japanese Restaurant on "F" Street, Oceanaire Seafood Room on "J" Street and Rockin' Baja Coastal Cantina on 5th Avenue. For night life try Croce's Restaurant & Jazz Bar,  Jimmy Love's on 5th Avenue or the Red Circle on "E" Street.

Shopping favorites are Celebration Fine Art Gallery on Broadway, Cuban Cigar Factory on 5th Avenue and Le Travel Store on 4th Avenue.
