The Gaslamp Quarter is a 16 ½ block national historic district with very active sidewalks and street life.  Within the Gaslamp Quarter you will find unique and diverse retail opportunities, the finest restaurants in San Diego, night clubs, five star hotels, residential units and office space.. While the Gaslamp Quarter is known for its dining and entertainment, there is also a growing residential community including new condominiums mixed with historical buildings, some of which have been converted into live/work lofts.

At the foot of the Gaslamp at 5th Avenue and Harbor you will find the brilliantly lit Gaslamp Quarter sign and the civic gathering place Gaslamp Square Park. The Gaslamp Quarter is easily accessible by public transport including the bus and Trolley. The blocks in this neighborhood are 200 feet by 300 feet in length and the sidewalks are composed of brick pavers.  There is ample parking in nearby parking lots and garages, while metered street parking spots are free on Sundays.
