Downtown_San_Diego's_Marina DistrictThis is part 1 of a 6 part series focusing on the specific neighborhoods of Downtown San Diego. Stay tuned for the rest of the city in future posts. 

One of my favorite things about living in Downtown San Diego is the diversity of its neighborhoods. We like to say that there is “something for everyone” and Downtown San Diego’s Marina District is no exception.

Once thought of as the “old money” neighborhood of Downtown, the Marina is undergoing a change and becoming a cornerstone of the Downtown lifestyle. Just recently, The Headquarters opened down on Pacific Hwy near Seaport Village. The Headquarters is home to brand new restaurants and boutique shops. I’ve had the opportunity to eat at Puesto in the Headquarters, and would recommend it to anyone. Just this week, a new Dunkin’ Doughnuts/Baskin Robbins opened up inside the Embassy Suites across the street from The Headquarters. This location is the first Dunkin Doughnuts in San Diego, and wait times are already reported to be close to an hour during peak times.

Downtown San Diego’s Marina District is home to some of San Diego’s most luxurious housing options. Marina District condos such as Park Place, Renaissance, Pinnacle, Horizons, Meridian, and Harbor Club offer homeowners luxury finishes and full service amenities. Being located down by the waterfront, most of your Marina district condos have stunning water views.

For a more moderate buyer, Downtown San Diego’s Marina District also had some low rise buildings, such as: Atria, 235 Market, Citywalk, Watermark, and Pacific Terrace. These buildings offer buyers a chance to enjoy the Marina districts location, without the high HOA’s of the full service buildings.

Along with the restaurants and housing options, Downtown San Diego’s Marina District is home to Downtown’s only Ralph’s supermarket, located on 1st and G St.
