Getting Around Golden Hill

Around Golden Hill

Golden Hill offers one of San Diego's most architecturally diverse areas. Many of the homes and apartments date back to the late 1800s, and several of the streets in the neighborhood were connected in the 1910s via streetcars and a fully developed public transit system designed for the Panama-California Exposition in 1915. Most of the streets have matured landscaping and trees for shade, and the neighborhood shows its pride with well maintained homes.

Golden Hill is a vibrant, highly desired urban neighborhood, and the culinary scene is just a rocking as the area. Not only does the area have many of the newest, hottest chefs opening up restaurants, but Balboa Park also offers many well-known, top flight eateries surrounded by the lovely gardens within the park. You can find everything from a build-it-yourself burrito bar to Japanese tea gardens and French bistros.

Many artists and musicians have called Golden Hill home for decades. This lends itself to the area's edgy and alternative atmosphere, as well as the prevalence of concert halls and recording studios. The neighborhood is also known for its celebration of women at the Women's History Museum and Education Center and was an early favorite for San Diego's LGBT community.

Friday nights mean great food, excellent wine, cocktails, beer tastings, and superb live music found in a thriving club scene. It's also a time to get out and walk the neighborhood, even walk over to Balboa Park or walk downtown to catch a ballgame at Petco Park. The locals tend to be young, hip and a little trendy, so you will find a great Friday night atmosphere in Golden Hill.

The best way to spend Sundays in Golden Hill is to stroll over to the park, relax with cappuccino in the center square and do some awesome people watching. You can also enjoy the botanical garden or take in the art scene with the museums. Another choice is to head down the hill to walk by the bay or visit the shops in Seaport Village.
