Like other great cities in the United States, San Diego's downtown offers a wide array of metropolitan sites and activities, including historic architecture, theater and the arts, parades, festivals, farmers markets, ballgames, and of course, great food of every imaginable type.

Unlike any other city, however, San Diego's downtown reflects its own particular historic and geographical flavor packed into a single square mile. Enjoy the nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter, visit Horton Plaza, or peruse a historic aircraft carrier in the harbor.

Downtown San Diego is home to 24,000 people and includes eight neighborhoods: Core, Columbia, Cortez Hill, East Village, Gaslamp Quarter, Horton Plaza, Little Italy, and Marina.
