Homes

Homes in this area come in a wide range of prices, styles, and sizes.

Where to Live

Charming Craftsman homes sit amidst ubiquitous apartment buildings, old and new. Affordability and walkability are key considerations in determining the ideal living locale. The major thoroughfares through North Park include El Cajon Boulevard, University Avenue and 30th Street. The closer to 30th Street, the better for experiencing popular restaurants, bars, and art venues. Cross streets, named for states, are as diverse as the states themselves. Make sure your dwelling comes with at least one parking spot if you don't want to be a hostage to decent parking.

Where to Eat

North Park is on the cutting edge of culinary trends, offering everything from ramen to upscale tacos to savory donuts to non-traditional waffles with creative toppings. Coffee houses are abundant, often offering similarly unique menus for those putting in study or work time or catching up with friends.

What You'll See

Long-time residents, young families, and cool young people dressed in their finest thrift store finds. All ages and walks of life can find appealing food, shopping, and entertainment in this vibrant neighborhood.

Friday Night Fun

Young people crowd bars and lounges, while residents and visitors of all ages and backgrounds enjoy the vast array of food choices and people watching. You will see more dogs than children in this popular urban neighborhood, though North Park is evolving constantly and friendly to all. Take an Uber or Lyft, or prepare for a lengthy stroll, as parking is notoriously difficult in this popular locale.

The Perfect Sunday

Grab a coffee or enjoy the scenery of one of North Park's eating establishments or breweries from the patio while soaking up San Diego's year-round sunshine and warm temperatures. Hunt for treasures at thrift stores and book shops, or attend religious services at one of North Park's various places of worship.

"Very cool neighborhood "

Great vibe in this part of San Diego! Love the pizza at Urbn and then head next door to Hammond's for great gourmet ice cream!

"Hip without the Hype"

As a student at SDSU, I spent most of my Saturdays in North Park. The selection of yoga studios, breweries, coffee shops, and thrift stores cannot be beat in the San Diego area. Sipz has the best vegan food I have yet to come across anywhere.
