“So fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

There is always excitement of one kind or another going on  in the historic Gaslamp Quarter.  So many great and diverse places to eat, all within walking distance of many great hotels.

“The up and coming Gaslamp!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

The Gaslamp Quarter is fairly new. Downtown wanted to bring in more tourists and locals to their downtown area. Very hip and happening place in San Diego. If you like seafood, you gotta stop by the Crab Hut. Family friendly indeed, but I wouldn't suggest staying after 10:00-pm. The crowd will quickly change to the club scene, and you don't want your kids to see that!
