  • Lots of restaurants, bars and shops. We enjoyed exploring this area. There is a trolley stop for this area, which was convenient. 
  • Downtown San diego, where you can spend the day in stores or in the evening where he wakes up and is filled with pub bar restaurants with music! Can you do drink and dine ... well worth a visit!

  • The region is very cool. According to taste, there is a street with bars and restaurants to please. We prefer the 4th Avenue, so much that we stopped at a bar down the street and we were only in it all night.

  • This place is great. The bar tender (Mel) is fun and makes a mean drink. Place place to hang out
  • Some great bars and restaurants. Found live music and dancing in one that rounded off a great evening.
  • Nice places to eat and hang out.
  • Love the atmosphere and variety in dining choices.
  • This is a must see area. Alot of restarants and pubs. Alot of vagrants and pan handling. But it is a fun place.
