Communities for Tourists to Explore in San Diego


Enjoy the Slideshow – Starts in 6 seconds.

San Diego is truly cosmopolitan. The beautiful climate, scenery, and endless amount of activities attract new residents from around the world. Over half of San Diegans were born outside of California and nearly a quarter are foreign immigrants.

San Diego is a melting pot of cultures with ideas and customs brought from all parts of the globe. Combine this with a varied topography where some communities hug the ocean, others are nestled in the mountains or desert, and many more surround the lively downtown area of San Diego, visitors have many opportunities to expand their horizons by exploring different cultures.

You can get started by exploring the communities shown in pictures above. Another great place to visit are the International Cottages in Balboa Park, which are open to the public on Sundays.

In the days ahead, more communities will be added, including the vibrant and LGBT friendly communities of Hillcrest and North Park, just outside of downtown.
