A scenic gem of a neighborhood, Golden Hill offers residents amazing vistas of San Diego Bay and Downtown San Diego, as well as the Coronado Bridge. Just East of Downtown San Diego, residents of Golden Hill can expect great access to both the San Diego Zoo and Balboa Park.
South of Golden Hill is Sherman Heights. The urban neighborhood is famous for the historic Villa Montezuma and the variety of events it holds yearly, like soapbox derbies, music festivals, and the like.
Near both Sherman Heights and Golden Hill is the community of South Park. This historic area has been home to generations of San Diegans since even before 1870.
Diversity is one of the highlights of these three neighboring communities. It counts Latinos, Asians, African Americans, and Europeans as some of the more prominent ethnicities that make these areas vibrant and dripping in culture.
All three are pedestrian areas; people are able to walk to most events or places of interest. There are a number of parks like the above-mentioned Balboa Park. Each of these neighborhoods is also very community-focused and has several social amenities that cater to their residents. For example, Golden Hill has both the Golden Hill Community Garden and The Golden Hill Recreation Center.
Residents in these areas also have access to excellent schools, so kids won’t have to go too far to get an excellent education. There are also loads of great dining and shopping options for people living in these three communities. For example, Morning Glory is one of the most popular breakfasts/brunch spots in the area, and Birria El Rey is a must for highly rated and authentic Mexican fare.
