About The Gaslamp –  Known as the the historic heart of San Diego, it’s a 16½ block historical neighborhood and the center of downtown night life. The Quarter is home to many events and festivals, including Marti Gras in the Gaslamp, Street Scene, Taste of Gaslamp and more. PetCo Park, home of the Padres, is located one block away in downtown San Diego’s East Village.

A Historic District, and named on the National Register of Historic Places, it’s main period of development began in 1867, when Alonzo Horton (Horton Plaza anyone?) bought the land in hopes of creating a new city center closer to the bay, and chose 5th Avenue as its main street. After a period of neglect, the neighborhood underwent a transformation in the 1980s and 1990s and is now an energetic business and entertainment district. The Gaslamp Quarter extends from Broadway to Harbor Drive, and from 4th to 6th Avenue. It includes 94 historic buildings, most of which were constructed in the Victorian Era, and are still in use with active tenants including restaurants, shops and nightclubs.
