Gaslamp Quarter Reviews
夜の雰囲気が最高です、お店も多く大人が繰り出すには最高かと思います。でも地元の人も現地に住む日本人も夜は単独で動くのは控えた方が良い地域と言っていました。さほど怖い思いは何もありませんでしたが、一応気をつけて下さい。 more »The atmosphere of the night is the best, and there are many shops and I think that it is the best for an adult. But the locals and the Japanese people living in the area said that it would be better to refrain from moving alone at night. There was not a very scary feeling, but please be careful.
I had a great time visiting the Gaslamp area while on business. All the restaurants are "live" and the food is deeeelicious . more »
