Clairemont Mesa is a tight-knit community with multitudinous opportunities for employment, education, international cuisine, and entertainment. I have lived here my entire life, and one of the biggest positives for me right now is being within walking distance of one of the highest-rated community colleges in the nation, San Diego Mesa College.

I love this little neighborhood so much! It has some of the best food available. We have a strip of Asian restaurants located on convoy st where you may find some of the most delicious dumplings ever!
Clairemont Mesa is a great location. Any place you need to go in town is not too far of a drive. There are many grocery stores near by. There's lots of stores to go shopping, and options on cuisine are great. Schools are close by, including a community college. Our neighboring neighborhoods include La Jolla/ Utc where there are even more shops and there's beaches. Kearny Mesa has lots of local businesses.
