Its Victorian-era buildings are now home to shops, sidewalk cafes, restaurants, bars, and more. Wander the streets and explore the many theaters, galleries, and museums that make the area a cultural hub. Be sure to keep an eye out for some of the replicas of the historical gas-powered lamps, the namesake of the district, which have been reinstalled at one intersection.
