Pacific Beach is a neighborhood in San Diego that was formerly mostly populated by young people and college students. However, with the rise in property values and rental costs, the population is slowly becoming older, more professional, and more affluent. There is a lively entertainment scene in each of its neighborhoods – with restaurants, bars and shops – all within walking distance of the residential districts. Homes in Pacific Beach range from high-rise and smaller condominium complexes to town homes, bungalows and cottages.
