The Gaslamp Quarter's 16 blocks are peppered with Victorian-style buildings that now house a variety of shops, art galleries, and trendy restaurants, not to mention some of the city's most popular nightlife venues. The best place to start your tour of the Gaslamp Quarter is the Horton Plaza shopping center. From there, you can explore the neighborhood's side streets or hop on an Old Town Trolley Tour.
