San Diego Sights

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

The large retro Hillcrest sign over the intersection of University and 5th avenues marks the epicenter of this vibrant Uptown neighborhood, the heart of San Diego's large gay community. Along 4th, 5th, and 6th avenues from Washington Street to Robinson Avenue, national chains such as American Apparel and Pinkberry coexist alongside local boutiques, bookstores, restaurants, and coffee shops. A few blocks east along University Avenue lie other interesting stores and restaurants.

If you are visiting Hillcrest on Sunday between 9 and 2 be sure to explore the Hillcrest Farmer's Market.
