This area, loosely defined as being bordered by I-8 on the north, Texas Street on the west, I-805 on the east and Juniper Street and Balboa Park on the south has most recently been named by Forbes as # 13 in a list of America’s best hipster neighborhoods.

Reasons for this include the fantastic architecture, the many cafes, diners and microbreweries, as well as the Ray Street Arts District and Birch North Park Theatre, Farmer’s Market and numerous cultural events held throughout the year.

The heart of North Park lies at the intersection of 30th and University where the famous North Park Sign is located.

The location allows for an easy trip to the beach, for play, and the airport, in case you have lots of travel plans or lots of visitors and encourages foot traffic and bike traffic. North Park most currently is the home of San Diego’s first Parklet which is an urban interpretation of a park. This means no grass, but tables and chairs for public use to rest, enjoy a bag lunch, or a treat from any of the nearby merchants.
