About Downtown San Diego

San Diego is best known for sandy beaches and ideal weather that enables all to enjoy outdoor activities on a year-round basis. Many of the locals are drifting away from the ocean and moving toward Downtown San Diego. It's quietly becoming a diverse community, as the majority of the residents live, work, shop and dine within the city's confines. The vibe is quite different from the surrounding beach communities, with many enjoying a thriving arts scene.

Around Downtown San Diego

The Downtown area is blossoming, as new apartment building construction projects have become the norm in the East Village community. All of the adjacent streets off Fifth Avenue are filled with a number of condos and loft spaces that are a stones throw away from a number of entertainment options. Accessible public transportation has become an increasingly vital component for all downtown communities to thrive. San Diego is no different, as many downtown residents enjoy traveling around the city on the rails of the MTS Trolley system.

Downtown San Diego offers a diverse culinary food scene with a number of authentic Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Mexican restaurants. Local government figures estimate that approximately 200 restaurants and craft beer breweries are located in a one-mile radius from the center of downtown. Many begin their evening by walking past the harbor before heading over to Fifth Avenue to spend time with friends at one of the local restaurant's happy hour.

Think of Downtown San Diego as a big city with a small town feel. The majority of the residents are young professionals who have an active lifestyle, as they often take full advantage of the many running paths for their early morning or late afternoon jog. These urban dwellers love Downtown San Diego because it provides a vibrant atmosphere, and all of their needs are within walking distance from their front door. Many love calling Fifth Avenue home and proudly recognized Petco Park and the Central Library as trusted neighbors because of their rich entertainment values.

Your weekend couldn't get off to a better start than having a Friday night meal at one the iconic Italian restaurants in Little Italy. This landmark neighborhood offers the perfect environment for family-friendly events. People come from all directions to witness the annual holiday tree lighting ceremony or participate in the trick-or-treat Halloween Fest sponsored by the local India Street businesses. The big crowds annually show the true feelings of San Diegans towards Little Italy.

Balboa Park is one of the largest public parks in the United States, as it offers multiple ball fields, tennis courts and endless hiking trails. The park's biggest resource is the grilling area that provides locals a space to enjoy a memorable Sunday afternoon together. Balboa Park is the perfect complement to the large skyscrapers of the business world and the eclectic restaurant community thus making it the crown jewel of Downtown San Diego.
