Gaslamp Quarter:
Lighten Up a Bit

  • Duration: 1.5 - 2 hours
  • Regular Price: $12.00

Known as "New Town" to San Diego's first settlers, today's Gaslamp Quarter is as vibrant and attractive as when Alonzo Horton first settled it, if not as bawdy and lawless. In an exercise of compare and contrast, you'll discover the best of old & new as you discover the neighborhood's many hidden layers. From the saloon where Wyatt Earp slurped oysters to the first jazz club in San Diego, you'll get a flavor of what once was. Then modernize your mindset as you taste test tacos at locals' favorite hotspots. Act presidential at the hotel where the most powerful men in the world like to stay; get dramatic at San Diego's most storied theaters. Introduce yourself to SD's founding fathers, and pick out your favorite sports car from a lot. By the time you take a breath to look up at Joseph Jessop's Clock, the only thing lighting the night sky will guessed it.
