San Diego’s first suburb Hillcrest – a peaceful place
December 18th, 2008

The warm and welcoming tree-lined streets and traditional homes in this quaint San Diego suburb make Hillcrest an ideal place to spend at least a day.
Hillcrest, the first suburb of San Diego which closely resembles a village rather than an urban town, is tucked away on a ridge between Mission Hills and Bankers Hill. This suburb was purchased by William Wesley Whitson in 1906 when his sister-in-law Laura Anderson heard that the George Hill Estate was up for sale. Today Hillcrest is known as the most colorful and diverse community in the whole of California.
Hillcrest is a classy suburban shopping destination for those who have shopping on their agenda.
This small suburb is full of little coffee shops, restaurants, specialty food outlets, antique stores, specialty shops, bookstores and boutiques. Thanks to its cool and serene California atmosphere, you will often find tourists with their families either walking or cycling through the Hillcrest neighborhood.
