With over 200 restaurants, bars, nightclubs and lounges and countless boutiques, art galleries and shops to peruse, the Gaslamp has established itself both as the playground of hip, eclectic San Diegans and as an elite urban destination.
Home of the San Diego Padres. Crack! Even when empty, the bowl seems to reverberate with echoes of the bat hitting the ball square and the fans cheering Padres’ baseball legend Tony Gywnn home. Concourses opening to the street make this ballpark a bold departure from those in most cities.
After rolling past Petco Park, our next stop in the tour is the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge. This artistic structure is truly a unique exhibit in this open air gallery.

Its’ main period of development started in the year 1867. After the period of urban-decay, the neighborhood underwent an urban renewal in 1980s and the 1990s
The city tourism board used the gaslamps to recall the 19th century downtown when gas was the only means of providing light for the city's shopkeepers and restaurants. Each one had to be manually lit and extinguished.
