Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Anza-Borrego Desert and the Laguna Mountains to the east and Mexico to the south, the diverse neighborhoods of San Diego are spread out over 4,200 square miles, offering endless opportunities for exploration and activities. Spend a day relaxing in one of the many beach communities, then hiking in the east San Diego County mountains the next. Explore the urban neighborhoods of San Diego’s downtown, from the iconic Gaslamp District to the eclectic community of Hillcrest. Visit the quaint and charming island town of Coronado or the picturesque village of La Jolla. San Diego’s regions are so unique and diverse; there are plenty of options to discover something new each time you visit.
The heart of every city lives in its downtown, and San Diego is no exception. Located only minutes from the airport, San Diego’s thriving downtown districts, including the historic Gaslamp Quarter, offer a plethora of options for accommodations, activities, dining, shopping and cultural attractions, all within walkable city blocks. Take a stroll along the Embarcadero and grab lunch at Seaport Village before you climb aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum. If a moving sea vessel is more your flavor, hop on a harbor cruise or sailing excursion. Catch the trolley for a quick ride to Balboa Park and the world-famous San Diego Zoo or Old Town San Diego. And when the sun goes down, the city's Gaslamp Quarter comes alive as it takes center stage in San Diego's happening nightlife scene.
The beating heart of San Diego’s downtown rests in the Gaslamp Quarter, comprised of 16 1/2 square blocks in the city’s central core. With a colorful array of restaurants, nightclubs, art galleries and boutiques, you will find plenty of things to do on foot. During the day, the Gaslamp Quarter is a great place for families. Visit the New Children’s Museum or explore the historic Victorian architecture preserved throughout the district. Shop at Horton Plaza or catch the Trolley to Balboa Park and the world-famous San Diego Zoo or Old Town. As night falls, the quarter transforms into a veritable adult playground as the sophisticated nightclub scene comes to life. From award-winning restaurant to happening dance clubs, jazz and rooftop bars, you'll find it in the Gaslamp Quarter.
