I love walking around the Gaslamp Quarter to peruse the countless boutiques and galleries, with the option to stop for a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants with sidewalk seating. You are also a short walk from Horton Plaza, a great open-air mall.
The Gaslamp Quarter is also the place to be for nightlife. There is something for everyone there, ranging from the hottest newest nightclubs to quaint speakeasy bars and live flamenco shows. The younger crowd often hangs out in Pacific Beach for nightlife, but once you hit about 30, you might start to feel a bit out of place amongst the mostly college-aged crowd.
