I live in one of the best areas in San Diego. The area is called university heights but its part of a bigger community called North Park. There are plenty of places to eat along with bars and coffee shops within walking distance and there is essentially no crime. My favorite part of my home is i am in close to just about everything interesting. Everything is a short uber/lyft drive away. Downtown, Pacific Beach, North park strip are all 10-20 mins away. You cant beat the location!
