Gaslamp Quarter

With so many great options in San Diego it was hard to pick one to point you towards but above all is the world-famous Gaslamp Quarter. As the West Coast’s premier entertainment district, guests can immerse themselves in rich Victorian architecture and history, dine with world-renowned chefs, and dance all night at nationally-recognized nightlife venues. Tucked into sixteen and a half blocks, the Gaslamp Quarter is an urban playground located in Downtown San Diego adjacent to the Convention Center, Petco Park and Horton Plaza. Not to mention the Gaslamp Quarter is extremely accessible. Whether the freeway, trolley or bus lines there is no shortage of fun to be had.

Food & Drink

It’s tough to describe just how good food in San Diego is. Divine, sublime, freakin’ awesome? Anyone will do. Some would say just having the ability to look over the Pacific and eat a meal is enough to say it’s worth it but San Diego thinks otherwise. They believe the food has to be as good as the view if not better. A huge metropolis mashing up the best in Mexican flavors, Californian experimentation, Pacific Rim seafood culture, craft beers, and an all-around relaxed ambiance has turned San Diego into a foodie’s dream destination. We’ve picked a few of San Diego’s signature locations and libations for you to explore for yourself.

When in San Diego you eat the fish tacos and the place to do that is Fish 101. Located just off the beach the menu changes with whatever fish gets caught that morning and all the ingredients come from locally sourced SoCal farms. Ordering at the counter, grabbing a seat and enjoying a craft beer while you wait for catch-of-the-day to join you at the table is the way to go.

Touched down in Little Italy Queenstown Public House looks like your grandmas house and serves food so good it might make her a little jealous. From prawn & grits to a bare lamb burger this New Zealander team behind the grill is serving up flavors you could only dream of before.

With so many amazing options for drinks, there seems to be no cooler place to be then Bang Bang. In its simplest description Bang Bang is a sushi bar with crazy signature drinks and desserts. When you realize they bring in the hottest DJ’s, let you dine on top of a koi pond and have a banana-bacon ice cream sandwich, you know you’re truly somewhere special. Reminicent of a Tokyo subway station, Bang Bang’s unique dimension creates a truly remarkably experience.
