  • One of the best places in the country to buy diamonds and high-end jewelry is The Jewelry Exchange on 6th Avenue in the Gaslamp Quarter: you'll find seven floors of wholesale jewelers.
  • A fun way to get from San Diego's Little Italy to the Gaslamp Quarter is by a bicycle taxi. Or travel like a local and take the Blue Line Trolley (the one that says Old Town) between the Gaslamp and Little Italy.
  • San Diego is sunny year round. Don't forget your sunscreen!
  • Don't miss Our Lady of the Rosary Church in San Diego. It doesn't matter what faith you are, the artwork is like something you would see in a museum. The church looks modest on the outside, but inside it is a real jewel.
  • San Diego's Little Italy is the place to buy hard-to-find imported olive oil and other specialty items direct from Italy.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
