About the Gaslamp Walking Tour:

Opening a window to San Diego’s past, the Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation showcases the history of the William Heath Davis House built in 1850, as well as walking tours of the historic Gaslamp Quarter.

The tour includes architecturally significant structures of the period from Old City Hall (1874) to the Romanesque style Keating Building (1890) to the Baroque Revival Louis Bank of Commerce (1888), along with fascinating stories of the people and characters that shaped the destiny of San Diego.

From William Heath Davis, who first attempted the building of “New Town,” to Alonzo Horton who came here in 1867 and finished the job, the cultural heritage of San Diego speaks through the buildings of a by-gone era that stand as testimony to its richness.

The tour takes under two hours and includes the William Heath Davis House Museum.  We have the option of going inside the Davis House half of the group at a time while our friends hold our dogs or skipping the interior tour all together.

Group is limited to 20 people. Only one well behaved dog will be allowed per person. Dogs are required to be on leash at all times and owners are responsible for their pet and any cleanup required :)

    This walk was really great. Our guide Bill had lots of fun stories to tell us about San Diego in the 1800's. It was such a fun activity to do with our dogs, I think everyone loved it. We learned and saw alot and the doggies were very well behaved for being downtown with all of the distractions.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
