Moving to North Park

On more than one occasion the area known as North Park has been referred to as the most “hipster” neighborhood in San Diego. Hosting everything from local cafés and places with craft beer to an art district and innovative restaurants, this community fills all the needs of the classic hipster. But people who are thinking about living in the area shouldn’t feel like only free spirits are allowed, as the area is also home to many young families.

With a population of 33,800 people, about one-third of them are members of families with young children. So, whether you’re a millennial, a hipster, or a married couple, there’s nothing to stop you from moving to North Park. And if you are looking for help, Move Central has stood the test of time as a top moving company in the area for over 10 years.

This family-friendly and quiet neighborhood boasts a crime rate that is 31% lower than the national average. You can’t go wrong when choosing what part of town you’d like to live in, but we have a couple suggestions of where you could start looking. Be sure to check out both Burlingame and Altadena for some great local communities.

Once you are there, you’ll find North Park offers residents easy access to some of San Diego’s most popular things to do. The entire neighborhood is within a short distance of popular attractions like the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, the Natural History Museum, and many more. And if you’re ever in the mood for a show, you can catch anything from concerts and comedians to local skits at The Observatory in the middle of town.

Parents will be happy to know that North Park schools are part of the San Diego Unified School District and are held to the same high education standards. One of the top elementary schools to start your kids is McKinley Elementary near the Altadena neighborhood. The city’s top high school is St. Augustine High.

Weather in North Park is exactly what you’d expect from a neighborhood only a few miles from the Pacific Coast. Temperatures experience minimal changes throughout the day, especially in the summer when temps typically vary between 65°F to 75°F. Even during the winter, it is rare for the thermometer to go below the 45°F line with highs in the low 60s.

    5 star ratingVery professional service! Kelly and Anthony arrived on time and worked their ways through two large rooms very quickly.  They asked the right types of questions regarding boxing like items together and got the job done.  Very friendly also I must add! Will certainly be using this service again!
