Eight different neighborhoods come together to comprise what is known as Downtown San Diego (also known as City Center). These neighborhoods are Columbia, Core, Cortez, East Village, Gaslamp, Horton Plaza, Little Italy, and Marina. After about 20 years of transformation and redevelopment, the Downtown neighborhoods have become the heart of San Diego. A vibrant and exciting place, Downtown is the core for many cultural, entertainment, business, financial, and art activities in San Diego. And for a quick get away, just northwest of Downtown, you will find the San Diego International Airport. This makes Downtown a hot spot for working, playing, and living.
Downtown is home to scores of places that are on the list from the National Register of Historic Places. These historic landmarks include Balboa Theater, Horton Grand Hotel, Pantoja Park, Star of India, and of course the Gaslamp Quarter Historic District, just to name a few. Nightlife in Downtown can be edgy and is definitely diverse. The music scene alone draws many leading performers from all over. You can frequent quirky music venues, bars of all sorts, hopping nightclubs, and excellent restaurants. Many locations are within a few blocks of each other. Different parts of the town cater to different types of people. With so much to offer, surely there is a nightlife scene to be explored for everyone. The performing arts are also are very alive in Downtown with many traveling productions being hosted here. In addition, both the San Diego Opera and the San Diego Symphony are headquartered in Downtown.

Looking for a place to call home in Downtown is different in every one of the eight neighborhoods, attracting all kinds of people. To explore a few, the East Village, known as up and coming in Downtown, has everything from studio apartments to larger homes, and for first time buyers it is a great place to buy. Columbia is on the waterfront and is typically higher in price due to the views. It is located in a business area, but it remains a very wealthy, sought after neighborhood. And with several popular condominiums and houses ranging from one-bedroom to three-bedrooms, Little Italy is a place many like to call home.
