San Diego travel tips

1) Where are the best shops and restaurants in San Diego?

Gaslamp is one of the most popular neighborhoods in San Diego as it is home to all the shops, best restaurants, and shopping malls. The quarter was built in 1850 and, for some time, had the glory of a brothel. However, this Victorian quarter was then cleaned up and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

2) Do I need to rent a car in San Diego?

Renting a car in San Diego is a nice option only for those tourists who are going to travel a lot in the surrounding area (for example, to Legoland). Moving around the city by car is quite difficult due to traffic jams and paid parking.
