Personally my favorite thing about living Downtown is being able to walk to “everything”… parks, coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants, Petco Park, the gym, nightlife, shopping, farmers market, the waterfront… you name it, sometimes allowing you to leave your car parked for days at a time. Walkability is a lifestyle! Have more personal time for you and your family, save money on gas, help the environment, and enjoy what your community has to offer.
