As most San Diegans already know, this city is a diverse assortment of small villages. Even though San Diego is the 8th largest city in the US, with all the advantages of a major urban area, it has managed to retain its small-town spirit. The energetic feeling of community is strong in San Diego’s varied neighborhoods that have developed their own unique characteristics. There are more than 100 separate, identifiable neighborhoods. Time to choose yours.

Downtown San Diego includes several neighborhoods: the Marina District, Little Italy, the Gaslamp Quarter, East Village, Cortez Hill and the Columbia Core. When asked why they moved Downtown, almost every resident cites being close to excellent restaurants, theaters, and sporting events.

Loft in East Village

In East Village, many newer construction high-rises have pools and fitness centers with Home Owner Association fees of $500/mo. or more. The units include the latest trends in kitchens, flooring and floor plans.

Little Italy is a “family-with-little-ones” friendly environment with larger condos and apartments. The neighborhood association organizes events for the community, such as Christmas tree lighting and trick-or-treating for the children. Downtown has dog parks, great bocce ball courts, lots of open space, the Embarcadero, large supermarkets, Seaport Village and the new County Waterfront Park.
