What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Downtown San Diego San Diego

I like it because public transportation is close by. And the downtown nightlife . And it's near a sports venue

Friendly neighbors pet friendly. Very walkable to restaurants and bars downtown. Good friends nearby

- beautiful, centrally located, good amenitites. The community in East Village is also very friendly and welcoming. I've met many great people since moving here, and there are always fun events and activities going on, such as farmers markets, street fairs, and live music performances.

But I like most about my neighborhood are the canyons the rolling hills and the always present Ocean breeze that drifts through the canyons keeping temperatures cooler and mild.

It has the best restaurants in San Diego. It has many options for cuisine. It is close to the airport and easy to get an Uber. Also close to the bay and there are parks.

In a large shopping mall near me, there are all kinds of things. Where do we buy all the materials for our family
