Downtown San Diego
Founded in 1850, downtown San Diego serves as the cultural, financial and business center of San Diego County. The area consists of eight districts across one square mile of land and hosts a unique mix of modern and historical architecture. The 1980’s and 90’s brought a revitalization period to San Diego that transformed the landscape of downtown into the thriving cosmopolitan city that we love today.
In addition to the Embarcadero’s diverse selection of water activities and sports, restaurants and hotels, downtown is also home to the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park, Horton Plaza Mall and the Convention Center. Attracting conventions on a near-weekly basis such as world famous “Comic-Con”, there is never a shortage of visitors eager to take in the many sites and marvels of the city.
With a train station conveniently located downtown and San Diego International Airport a quick 10-minute drive away, Downtown is a perfect area to call home for anyone seeking the urban lifestyle with every convenience and necessity imaginable a stone’s throw away.
