Overview of Eastern San Diego

Renting an Eastern San Diego apartment locates you in a swath of the city known for its family-friendly communities, abundant medical facilities, and extensive parkland. Everything in between Interstate 8, Interstate 805, the Mount Soledad Freeway, and within the city limits is included in this section of San Diego. You’ll find the neighborhoods of Allied Gardens, Birdland, Del Cerro, Grantville, Kearny Mesa, Lake Murray, Mission Valley East, San Carlos, Serra Mesa, and Tierrasanta here.

Most of Eastern San Diego saw development in the post-war period. That said, this is where you’d go to visit the Mission of San Diego de Alcala. It was moved to Mission Valley East in 1774. More recently, the U.S. military operated bases in Eastern San Diego. Camp Kearny gave Kearny Mesa its name and Camp Elliot served as a training facility for Marines. These bases have closed and given way to homes, shops, and schools.

If you’re looking to head out on the town in Eastern San Diego, you’ll have a few good options. Convoy Street in Kearny Mesa boasts a bunch of Asian ethnic eateries.

Grantville is another commercial area. There you’ll find a Home Depot and dozens of other retail stores.

On the eastern edge of the city, Mission Trails Regional Park presents 5,800 acres of open space and over 40 miles of trails. Lake Murray—a reservoir—is included in the park. You can go for a kayak, watch the birds, or enjoy catch-and-release fishing there.
