Getting Around Bankers Hill

Around Bankers Hill

Bankers Hill is primarily residential west of Fifth Avenue and south of Laurel Street. Park Boulevard is mostly commercial. Many new condominium projects were constructed over the last few years along Sixth Avenue that face Balboa Park for a tranquil view. South of Laurel Street you will find living options that are architecturally beautiful with Craftsman Cottages delightfully painted and restored.

Bankers Hill is home to a thriving restaurant scene with many of the best up-and-coming chefs opening new restaurants. The area is also known for some of San Diego's best vegetarian restaurants and a hopping lunch scene as well due to the commercial district along Park Boulevard. The neighborhood also has one of the best dessert bakeries in the urban area.

The neighborhood is a popular play for visitors due to its commercial activity through the day and night. There are plenty of tourists visiting the nearby San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park, which has many museums, restaurants, gardens and other attractions. It's also become a favorite spot for young professionals due to its active nightlife scene and new restaurants.

Fridays are fun in Bankers Hill with locals and visitors alike walking and enjoying the nightlife. The neighborhood has plenty of clubs for local musicians to show off their talents, niche breweries for beer tastings, and plenty of lights throughout the landscaping in Balboa Park. There are also some theaters for a low-key night at the movies.

The perfect Sunday can mean strolling through Balboa Park, checking out the animals at the San Diego Zoo, visiting the Midway Museum, walking along Mariner's Park or heading out to sail on the bay. You can also have a lovely Sunday brunch at any of the dozens of restaurants that line the water's edge on San Diego Bay to watch the waves and look for dolphins swimming by.
