Shady Ladies and Hop Heads Tour

Walking Tour and Pub Crawl

The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of a new guided walking tour. Created in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of New Town San Diego, now downtown, the combination historical tour and pub crawl explores the historic Gaslamp District.

Follow your guide back in time to hear about the Gaslamp Quarter back when it was called the "Stingaree" and was infamous for its teeming red-light district. Learn about the historic buildings and colorful characters that populated them - and perhaps even meet a few of them along the way! Enjoy a drink - or just a seat - at three historic bars that are original to the Gaslamp Quarter.

The Shady Ladies and Hop Heads tour takes place once a month.
