Golden Hill, San Diego, California

Golden Hill is a neighborhood of San Diego, California, south of Balboa Park North of Sherman Heights/Highway 94 (M. L. King, Jr. Freeway) and East of Downtown.

Golden Hill is one of San Diego's most historic and architecturally eclectic zones, with many pre-1900 homes and apartments. It is in walking distance of Downtown, City College and much of Balboa Park. Auto access is direct from freeways 5 and 94, The major through streets and bus routes are Broadway (East and West), and 25th and 30th Streets (North and South). The Zip code is a portion of 92102. Pedestrianism, like in other urban mesa neighborhoods surrounding Balboa Park, is high relative to the rest of San Diego.

Some consider the now wealthier community of South Park to be part of Golden Hill, but the South Park community name dates back to 1870. [Montes, Beth [ "The Early History of South Park"] , South Park neighborhood web site]

Artists and musicians have long favored the area more so since being priced out of areas like Little Italy, Eastern Downtown and Hillcrest. Golden Hill is home to Black Box Recording Studios, The Habitat Recording Studios, Influx Cafe, Turf Supper Club, Krakatoa & Luigi's Pizza.

Golden Hill is also host to two outdoor concerts a year, The Golden Hill Block Party and Kate Sessions Fest. The Golden Hill Block Party happens the last Saturday prior to Halloween. The Adored have headlined the Golden Hill Block Party. in 2006 year, the Kate Sessions Fest made its debut in Golden Hill Park. Both outdoor concerts are free, all-ages events, organized by local artists and musicians, featuring local bands.
