North Park has been a great place for my husband and I to live during the last year. We're originally from the east coast and CA is VERY different. There is never humidity, it's almost always sunny, and the coldest it gets is about 55 degrees F. North Park is a small community north of Balboa Park and it's mostly known for its microbreweries. There are a lot of great places to eat, grab a "craft" beer, and hang out with friends. There are also a lot of coffee shops and Mexican restaurants. And they're ALL so good! The Mexican food in southern CA is amazing. But one of the best parts about this area is how pet-friendly everyone and everything is. There are doggie water bowls outside almost every shop and restaurant, and some restaurants even have doggie menus! There is a lot to do here and the weather never holds you back.

Growing up in a small rural area, North Park is not something that I am use to. That's what I love so much about it. The neighborhood is extremely diverse, from the style of foods nearby, local art work, breweries, and people from different cultural backgrounds and walks of life. One of the best things is that it is extremely doggy friendly! I can see myself spending quite some time here.
This neighborhood is great! It is lively and welcoming to all, great food and entertainment everywhere. The homeless population is pretty big but the community does a lot to help them and most that stick around here are very nice.
