Back in the 1980s, Former Mayor of San Diego, Pete Wilson, hailed San Diego: “America’s Finest City”. Nowadays, the name has become a buzzword for tourists and locals alike, and for good reason. Downtown San Diego is home to some of the best weather in the country, relaxed and happy people, and unique restaurants and bars – and the best way to fully take advantage of these one-of-a-kind tokens of San Diego is to live in the city!
Living in an apartment in the Downtown area gives you the opportunity to experience the culture more than any tourist could; you’ll find hidden gems, new groups of friends, and an awesome community. Here is a list of things to expect from living in Downtown San Diego.
You wouldn’t think that something as commonplace as parking would be a big deal, but hear me out, having your own private parking spot Downtown is very valuable. While visitors and tourists could spend 30 minutes or more just trying to park, you and your guests will have designated parking at your apartment. Less time parking, more time doing what you actually want to do.
Countless Community Events
On any given weekend there are what seems like an unlimited amount of events happening in the streets downtown. Whether it’s the weekly Little Italy Farmers Market, Beer Fest at Petco Park, or Balboa Park December Nights, you’ll always find engaging events and activities to attend and participate within your community. People especially appreciate these types of events because they always promote welfare within the community, and they are a great opportunity to network with local businesses and influencers.
The Finest Bars and Restaurants
San Diego’s cuisine and nightlife rank among the world’s best, and they certainly live up to their reputation. You could make it your mission to try every restaurant in the Downtown Area and busy for months, and even then, you’d have trouble deciding your favorite. So instead of picking just one bar or restaurant, why not narrow it down to your favorite neighborhood?
Little Italy hosts a variety of yelp-revered and local hotspot restaurants, while the iconic Gaslamp District has the best craft cocktail bars you’ll find throughout the whole city. Not to mention Point Loma, with seafood that is unparalleled by any port city in the country. Living in an apartment in any of these neighborhoods gives you access to these staples with the utmost convenience.
Whether you’re looking to unwind on a sandy beach or rent a yacht to cruise around the harbor with your friends, Downtown San Diego’s got it all covered. Especially when you live in the Downtown area, you are just a walk or ride-share away from all of the best ocean activities that make up for a huge part of the San Diego experience.
