Central San Diego County
The populous, metropolitan Central San Diego region consists of the Downtown district and surrounding communities to the north and east. The most notable community in Central San Diego is Downtown itself, a bustling modern city with a wonderful baseball field at Petco Park, a beautiful marina at Seaport Village and thriving nightlife along the Gaslamp Quarter.

Other highlights: Historic Old Town is the birthplace of San Diego. Beautiful Golden Hill is situated conveniently between downtown and the cultural mecca of Balboa Park (including San Diego Zoo). The north metro communities of Hillcrest, North Park and Kensington have their own sense of sophistication, with walkable streets lined with innovative restaurants and fashionable boutiques. College Grove is home to San Diego State University, the county’s largest college. Mission Valley has two major shopping malls plus Qualcomm Stadium for football fans. There’s always something to do here in the heart of the city.
