With over 200 restaurants, clubs and bars, the newly urbanized, historic Gaslamp Quarter boasts the best nightlife in San Diego. Home to many of the city's events and festivals such as Mardi Gras and Street Scene, this area is bordered by the Convention Center, PETCO park and the downtown waterfront. Comprised of just 16 blocks, you don't need a car to get around the Gaslamp. However, the Metro and Coronado island ferry are available for easy transport.
