San Diego is rolling out the spookiest, most spectacular stops for Halloween in the notorious Gaslamp Quarter this year. A vacation to America’s Finest City for Halloween will thrill and send chills up your spine, especially when you’re able to score a hotel near the Gaslamp Quarter right in the midst of all the action. Here are some of the top downtown San Diego events taking place during Halloween this year:
The Haunted Hotel
This haunted house on Market Street is considered one of the best and spookiest in America. You’ll get a chance to visit Freddy Krueger’s gruesome workshop, take the Hellavator down to unknown depths and try to escape the out-of-control disease outbreak that’s turning people into zombies. This scary stop is open most nights until 1 AM through November 1.
San Diego Zombie Crawl
If you love Halloween more for its parties, then you’ll love the Zombie Crawl in the Gaslamp Quarter. One ticket will give you access to the top Halloween parties in the neighborhood’s best bars and clubs. Costumes are definitely welcome and all participants receive a “hunting permit” map with all the listed events. This takes place on Halloween night and anyone over the age of 21 can purchase a ticket.
San Diego Monster Bash
The city’s largest and best Halloween party can also be found in the Gaslamp Quarter. Centered on the corner of 7th and Market Streets, this enormous block party goes on for eight blocks in any direction and includes five stages with some of the best live acts in the area. Themed sections include the VIP Villain’s District and the Wicked Woodlands, and this all lasts from 6 PM to 12 AM. If you think your costume is a cut above the rest, you can enter the costume contest and compete with other masqueraders for a chance at a $5,000 cash prize. This fantastic event is only open to people 21 and older.
