Historically Hillcrest can trace its roots to a time when Class 1 Streetcars first connected the land above Downtown San Diego to the city’s core. Like Normal Heights and Kensington, Hillcrest boomed when residents were able to hop on a Streetcar to work in one of Downtown’s offices, ports, or industrial facilities. Today the streetcars have long since been retired. Many who work Downtown still find that Hillcrest is an excellent place to live. Those who work further away also find access to major interstates convenient for commuting.
Besides being a nice place to live for San Diego workers, Hillcrest attracts many residents because of its attitude toward diversity. In the 1970s Hillcrest gay and lesbian business owners began to form associations. This supportive community grew to host San Diego’s first permitted Gay Pride Parade in the 1980s. Today Hillcrest remains a center for the LGBT community. Hillcrest’s pride extends into its support of locally owned businesses. One result that Hillcrest is a unique place for shopping and dinning.
