Welcome to Metro SD
Metro San Diego neighborhoods hold a strong sense of community, encourage a pedestrian-friendly lifestyle, and overflow with San Diego culture.
This lively residential area of Normal Heights is home to several independent coffee houses and restaurants. The Rabbit Hole is a local favorite that hosts live music and serves healthy comfort food, like the Impossible Burger, a plant-based sandwich with buffalo hummus. Trolley Barn is a park on the site of an old streetcar barn that holds summertime concerts and outdoor movie screenings. Future property owners in Normal Heights can choose between Craftsman Cottages, remodeled condos, or single-family properties.
The North Park district celebrates cultural diversity and a rich past. The North Park Historical Society, a volunteer organization, preserves the history of North Park and protects the community’s blend of architecture styles, keeping the many Craftsman and California Bungalows genuine to the origins of San Diego. The Ray Streets Arts district, the area’s creative centerpiece, hosts Ray at Night, San Diego’s largest and longest-running monthly art walk. The district is flush with neighborhood cafes, diners, and breweries, like the relaxed and rustic Thorn Street Brewery and the multiple food trucks that rotate outside. Residents enjoy walking to Balboa Park to visit its museums and live performance venues.
The South Park district was designed to give residents authentic choices. This district, with its charm and tree-lined streets, deliver indie shops, plant-based restaurants, and Grape Street Dog Park, the largest of three dog parks in close-by Balboa Park. Fern Street gives shoppers a genuine experience with places like Graffiti Street, a boutique that sells home, beauty, and wellness goods.
Interstates 5 and 805 are close enough for easy access, but far enough away for residents to enjoy the flow and walkability of these neighborhood’s refreshing streets.
