San Diego has taken an older part of downtown and done some wonderful remodeling, upgrading, and general sprucing up including some very period street lights, hence the name Gas Light District. There is plenty of great shopping from boutiques and small specialty shops to larger chain stores and a mall, and of course plenty of night-life bars, lounges, and saloons. But the restaurants that dot this area are where you really have to be careful. Preying on the tourist trade they charge outrageous prices for mediocre or worse food. I went into an Italian restaurant with a party of twelve, and three of our party had to send their food back because it was badly prepared. And several of us where quite sick the next day, and we all blamed the dinner there. Take care in choosing a meal. Maybe shopping and drinking should be your choices.

I'm attending a conference in San Diego next year. A colleague of mine mentioned the Gas Light District, but said he hadn't been in about 10-15 years. The info in this review is useful to me. It's always good to know places that potentially take advantage of tourists. The remodeling job sounds nice though.

Dinner + Padres game + Drinks after = Awesome

What they did to this district is terrific. They managed to turn that place into an exiciting hang-out spot where everyone can find something to do. The great urban atmosphere coupled wiht SD's perpetually mild climate make it the perfect place to spend a day. Thumbs up.
