The Gaslamp Quarter San Diego is a great place to start your visit to San Diego California, whether you are looking to dine out,
be entertained or just get out and explore. With its history dating back to 1850, this
particular area of SD is listed as the Gaslamp Quarter Historic District
in the National Register of Historic Places. While the 16½ blocks of what is known as the Gaslamp
District has undergone more than one urban renewal, it is now a thriving and
entertaining place for both locals and visitors to the area.
