    San Diego has a growing gay community, centred on the Hillcrest neighbourhood. You may want to do some shopping at Gay Mart and International Male before heading to Hamburger Mary’s for a hearty sandwich or huge fruit plate. As the sun sets there are a range of night spots, including country & western saloons, plush piano bars and strip clubs. Look for the local Gay & Lesbian Times for listings. The friendly Convention & Visitors Bureau can be reached by ringing 619/232-1707 or at If you've come to San Dieog for upscale shopping (Nordstrom, Macy’s, Louis Vuitton and the like), head to Horton Plaza. The nearby Gaslamp Quarter has less glitz and more antique shops. A shopping hint: anything with a “Hecho en Mexico” sticker has been imported across the border and probably costs much less in nearby Tijuana than in San Diego, although there are wholesalers who can offer bulk discounts north of the border. However, Tijuana has incredibly inexpensive tequila and pharmaceuticals.
