Hillcrest is just a 10 min walk, with grocery stores, Peets, Starbucks, movie theatres, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Drive to Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo in 5 mins. Little Italy, San Diego Bay and the Gaslamp are just as close, with much more to do along the waterfront.
If you're able to walk, there is much to see, but a car is recommended to enjoy all that San Diego has to offer. Great walking neighborhood with some hills to get in your workout.
