On Saturday, I left the convention area to visit Seaport Village. There is a long walkway along the waterfront that connects the village center to the convention center.
Seaport Village is small but cute. If you are ever visiting the Gaslamp district, or are at a convention, it is worth a small walk to check out. They also have a cookie shop and an ice cream shop which I didn't get to try this time, but I will be returning and I will get some ice cream for sure!
