I love the environment in Normal Heights. We have great access to food, shops, and entertainment. The neighborhood is incredibly charming and has an interesting history. I would like to see the sidewalks fixed and regulations on changes made to existing homes.

Normal Heights is a lovely community that is only a 12 minute drive from Downtown San Diego. It is conveniently positioned between the 805 and 15 freeways which makes your commute to work fairly painless, no matter the direction your are heading. There are also a variety of restaurants, bars and shops that are all located on the main Adams Avenue strip. Because of everything being so centrally located, you can limit the use of your vehicle and walk everywhere you need to go. I highly recommend Normal Heights to anyone that is new to San Diego, or has lived here all their lives.
Great neighborhood, lots of activities to be found for families, young adults, and couples. Centrally located in San Diego, close to everything!
