Mission Hills — located amid lush hills and winding canyons and overlooking Old Town, Downtown San Diego, and San Diego Bay — is regarded as one of San Diego’s finest neighborhoods. In addition to bountiful greenery and beautiful gardens, Mission Hills features an abundance of elegant homes, many of which illustrate San Diego’s best in historic architecture. Lovingly preserved and restored, these homes built in the late 1800s/early 1900s by the era’s most exalted architects illustrate a variety of styles, including Craftsman Bungalow, Prairie Home, and Spanish and Mission Revival. Many homes on San Diego’s Historical Register are located in this upscale community. In addition, unique homes were built along canyon rims during the 1950s and 1960s by the “modern” masters.
Though mainly a quiet residential area, Mission Hills has a thriving, and growing, business district featuring boutique shops, high-end restaurants, coffee shops, and wine-tasting rooms. Heritage Park, Pioneer Park, and Presidio Park provide open space for relaxed strolls, children’s play dates, community events, and historical/educational information.
Schools in Mission Hills include St. Vincents, a private Catholic school for preschool–8th grade students; Francis W. Parker School, San Diego’s oldest and largest independent, non-denominational school serving students from K–5th grade; and the public Florence Elementary School and Grant K–8 School, both part of the San Diego Unified School District.
Mission Hills is conveniently located near the heart of San Diego and all its many sights, activities, industries, and facilities. It affords easy access to area hospitals, including UCSD Medical Center, Scripps Mercy, Kaiser Permanente, Alvarado, and Sharp Hospitals, among several other top-notch healthcare facilities. It’s also close to numerous military complexes throughout San Diego, the biotech industry (“Biotech Beach” in La Jolla/Del Mar), and technology companies in Sorrento Valley and North County. Minutes away are shopping malls such as Fashion Valley Mall, Horton Plaza, and University Towne Centre Mall, among others, as well as unique communities such as Little Italy, Hillcrest, Pacific Beach, Point Loma, Sunset Cliffs, La Jolla, Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Cardiff by the Sea, Coronado, North Park, South Park, and the Gaslamp District. Take the trolley to a Chargers football game at Qualcom Stadium in Mission Valley or a Padres baseball game at Petco Park in the East Village. If you’re a golfer, there are more golf courses in San Diego County than just about anywhere in the country. Likewise, enjoy a Harbor Cruise for a whale-watching expedition, charter a boat for some sports-fishing, or take advantage of the area’s many yatch clubs, boat slips, and waterfront parks. Additionally, check out adult and baby seals at the rookery at La Jolla Cove, or enjoy bay views and ocean views while strolling through Torrey Pines State Reserve. Water-ski, surf, wind-surf, kite-surf, parasail, or kayak in Mission Bay Park. Play beach volleyball near the Boardwalk, or enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling near Blacks Beach. Hike the mountains of Mission Trails Park, take a historical stroll through San Diego Old Town State Historic Park, or see live theater at one of the area’s many performance venues (including the first-class La Jolla Playhouse, San Diego Repertory Theater, the Old Globe, and the historic Balboa Theatre). Or if it suits you, take a wine tour through some of the region’s many wineries, enjoy spectacular views from atop Mount Soledad, shop at Seaport Village’s numerous retail stores, or take a tour of the Naval aircraft carrier USS Midway. And don’t forget San Diego’s premier gem, Balboa Park, which is home to art galleries, museums, botanical gardens, the Spreckles Organ Pavilion, and of course, the world-famous San Diego Zoo. Everything is within easy reach from Mission Hills!
