Spanning more than 16 blocks of downtown San Diego, the city's historic center is called Gaslamp Quarter and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its Victorian-era buildings are now home to shops, sidewalk cafes, restaurants, bars, and more. Wander the streets and explore the many theaters, galleries, and museums that make the area a cultural hub. Be sure to keep an eye out for some of the replicas of the historical gas-powered lamps, the namesake of the district, which have been reinstalled at one intersection. Plan your visit to Gaslamp Quarter and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our San Diego trip app.
