The Hillcrest area is best known for its tolerance and lifestyle diversity. All are welcome: young, old, straight, LBGT, singles, and couples call Hillcrest home. It is a lively, active neighborhood known for trendy restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars and unique boutiques, Hillcrest is bordered by Mission Hills on the west, Bankers Hill and Balboa Park on the south and Mission Valley on the north. Two of the best hospitals in the county are located here, so many healthcare professionals call Hillcrest home.

Hillcrest residents appreciate the proximity to downtown and Balboa Park. Often described as the hippest commercial district, the large, gay, politically active population has been crucial in revitalizing the area. Hillcrest has many neighborhood activities, including a fabulous farmers market on Sundays with fruits and veggies, of course, but also crafts, cooking, and arts; an annual Gay-Pride parade, City Fest—a celebration with local bands, beer gardens, children’s area, and much more.
