Mira Mesa is a very convenient place to live; there are grocery stores, a library, a movie theater, many eateries, cafes, high schools, and public parks all within walking distance from most residential areas. There are also many young families that live in this area, so it is very safe and family-friendly. For those who are looking for a delicious craft cocktail, they can drive down to Miramar Road right down the street to visit one of San Diego's famous breweries. Mira Mesa is a great place to live for a person of any age!

I have only been in Mira Mesa for about 2 years. My experience here has been great and I would definitely recommend living in Mira Mesa. I love the community and the environment. It's very clean and the atmosphere of the people is great. There are a lot of restaurants and stores close by. One thing that I would change is the diversity of the people in Mira Mesa, there are a lot of Asians in the neighborhood, and I wish that there is more diversity in races. Overall Mira Mesa is a great neighborhood, I have enjoyed living here and would continue living here for the rest of my life.
My experience in Mira Mesa has been okay. There is a sense of community within the town, however it is getting more and more crowded every year. The local highschool is in the center of the town and it's fitting because there are lots of young highschoolers' everywhere. It's a great starter town to San diego, right in the middle of everything. The only thing I would change about Miramesa is the housing rates and quantity of them, in both cases it's a lot for how little this town is.
