I've lived in Linda Vista for a little less than a year and it has been a wonderful experience. I live right down the hill from USD and it is a beautiful school to look at an beautiful campus to walk on. The neighbors are all very nice, and even though we live so close to a college campus, this is not a "college scene". There are no loud parties or unusual people walking around at all hours of the night. It is a very clean place and very central to all things in San Diego. Without traffic it's less than a 5 minute drive to Fashion Valley Mall, a 10 minute drive to the beach, 10 minute drive to Old Town, and trolley access is right down the street!

I enjoy living close to most freeways in San Diego. This town is mixed culture which I do like. They recently built a new skate park, which has been great for the community. Children, young adults and adults enjoy the skate park, and this has really changed the elementary schools problem with skaters on their stairs after school and on weekends. This community also has a farmers market on Thursdays in the Rite Aid parking lot and a cultural fair every year.
I think Linda Vista is a great community. It's a place where almost everyone knows everyone, at least when it comes to the teenagers here. Something I'd like to see change is the quality of the streets here. The potholes here are the worst! Something needs to be done. My car is getting more and more damaged driving on these awful streets.
