Time Out says

As the historic heart of San Diego, the 16-and-a-half-block Gaslamp Quarter blends Victorian charm with a 21st-century entertainment and shopping scene. The site of the city’s red light district in the 19th century, the area has been revitalized over the last 20 years and is now home to more than 100 retail stores. Dust off your credit card and check out some of the highlights including contemporary womenswear at Blue Jeans & Bikinis (435 J Street) and upmarket apparel and accessories for both sexes at Dolcetti Boutique (635 Fifth Ave). Then head for a well-earned cocktail or two at Altitude Sky Lounge (660 K St), where the fire pits are ignited and the resident DJs start up as the sun sinks.
