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.

An urban stroll. Lots of sidewalk cafes and some interesting architecture. Not really “little Italy” or the Gaslamp District anymore..it is more of a fun walk I guess.

Because of recent Covid and Riots a lot of places, businesses museums are closed. It was a sad sight to see. Nevertheless, the Marina, Little Italy and other places made it worth the activity.

excellent downtown/harbor walk. we stopped at a bar and gave the dog a rest, most places seemed kid and dog friendly. would recommend doing when hungry since there are so many restaurants

If you follow this trail it gives you a great tour of San Diego. You pass through the gaslamp district, little italy, and the waterfront. It was a nice walk not tiring because there's so much sight seeing you dont even realize how much you've walked. Overall an awesome walk.

Beautiful views in a vibrant city. There is plenty to see in the Gaslamp, Marina & Little Italy districts of San Diego. We also caught a Padres game while touring the city on foot.
