I have lived in Mira Mesa for 4 years. I moved to Mira Mesa from Tucson, Arizona . Mira Mesa is near San Diego. It is bordered by Interstate 15, Interstate 805 on the Los Penasquitos Canyon, and the Marine Corps Air Station Mira Mar. Mira Mesa is disproportionately large young professionals. There is a healthy ethnic mix here. Mira Mesa is basically a home owners market. Property values are high and still on the rise. The median income is about $65,000 per year, and the cost of living is high. On the other hand, the weather is great, the schools are good, the housing market is stable, the crime rate is low, and amenities such as grocery stores, shopping outlets and parks are plentiful. There is a broad array of ethnic restaurants, as well as traditional dining facilities. Mira Mesa has eight community parks, centers for teenagers and senior citizens, an ice skating rink, and a multi-plex movie theater. .
