Visit Colorful Hillcrest
A true success story in terms of revitalization, Hillcrest has blossomed into one of the hippest, most happening communities in the nation. Located just north of Balboa Park and the world’s most famous zoo, the community celebrated their first 100 years in 2007 as one of San Diego’s oldest communities. An eclectic urban village with a small town feel, this fabulous area is often touted as San Diego’s most diverse neighborhood, as it is proudly populated by a thriving gay population as well as artists, intellectuals and free-thinkers. Hillcrest’s picturesque streets, twinkling with Christmas lights year-round, are lined by charming specialty boutiques, vintage clothing stores, international restaurants, galleries, coffee shops, and used bookstores. The best way to explore and enjoy Hillcrest is by foot, as you are sure to miss something interesting if you choose to drive through the eccentric town. Public Transit bus routes 1,3,10,11,120
