Loop of San Diego - Gaslamp, Little Italy, and Marina District is a 3.8 mile loop trail located near San Diego, CA that offers scenic views. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for walking.
Downtown San Diego is a living tribute to history and revitalization. The Gaslamp Quarter followed up its boisterous boomtown years-the late 1800s, when Wyatt Earp ran gambling halls and sailors frequented brothels lining 4th and 5th Avenues-with a long stint of seediness, emerging only recently as a glamorous place to live and play. Little Italy, once a bustling Italian fishing neighborhood, got a fresh start when the city took its cause to heart. Highlights: The restored gas lamps that give the Gaslamp its name; the juxtaposition of old and new architecture; Little Italy's sidewalk cafes. Best Time to Go - morning or early afternoon.
