Gaslamp Historical/Architectural Walking Tour
The tour includes architecturally significant structures and the fascinating stories of the people and characters that shaped the Gaslamp from its beginnings to today. From William Heath Davis, who first attempted the building of “New Town,” to Alonzo Horton who came here in 1867 and finished the job, the cultural heritage of San Diego speaks through the buildings of a by-gone era that stand as testimony to its richness.
Tours typically last around 45 minutes.
