Here are some of the distinctive characteristics of various areas of San Diego County:

  • Beaches/Central Coastal - These beach city communities are the ones that people tend to think of first when they picture San Diego. La Jolla, Pacific Beach/Mission Beach, University City, Clairemont, Bay Park, Point Loma, Ocean Beach; 92037, 92109, 92122, 92117, 92110, 92106, 92107.  

  • San Diego Downtown - Metro San Diego is thriving again and is full of life. The ocean views from hi-rises are an extra bonus. Multitude of new condo buildings available for lease or sale. Banker's Hill, Downtown San Diego; 92101.

  • North County Coastal - These family-friendly communities include more established coastal neighborhoods and newer, still-emerging communities.

Chula Vista, East Lake, Otay, National City.

  • East County -  A bit further away from the coast than other areas, East County encompasses some communities with traditional small town charm and even a few with a bigger city lifestyle. El Cajon, Lakeside, Jamul, La Mesa, Spring Valley, Alpine.
