WHO will love living in Barrio Logan?
A purpose-driven urbanite who rallies behind their ‘hood and is proud to represent it, support it, and grow with it. Barrio Logan has always been home to predominantly Mexican American movers and shakers, who in the past have peacefully rallied for their civic rights. Here, the Chicano culture is continually heard, seen and especially, tasted.
WHAT will you see?
It’s not every day you can brag to your friends about living next to a National Historic Landmark and America’s most extensive collection of outdoor murals (Chicano Park), a military base, a famous bridge AND minutes to downtown. This dynamo of a neighborhood has a ton more to be proud of: artist collectives, galleries, and some of the best Mexican eats in town.
WHERE will you eat?
Don’t be fooled by the no-frills dining scene. Just one look at the long lines and it will be obvious: The eats here are worth the wait. The plates may be simple, but the flavors will be booming. Put on your stretchy pants and join the rest at La Popular Tortilleria and Las Cuatro Milpas, a haven for the hungry since 1933. Some new spots have joined the fray, including Salud! (featured on the Travel Channel), Mariscos el Pulpo, Attitude Brewing Company, and Border X Brewing.
HOW will you spend your time?
Attending festivals at Chicano Park, sipping your way thru new craft breweries, and chatting it up with the office workers, military personnel (a San Diego military base is a few minutes away) and savvy out-of-towners as you wait in line for fresh tortillas, birria tacos, and carne asada burritos. Get a dose of art at the La Bodega Gallery, a former warehouse that now showcases up-and-coming artists.
WHY you’ll love living here?
Here, it’s all about heritage and family. Though not your typical family-friendly neighborhood, Barrio Logan is a community of children, parents, and grandparents walking together, playing together, and dining together. This neighborhood also holds a coveted spot on the map, located just down the street from downtown’s Gaslamp Quarter, Petco Park and the San Diego Convention Center, plus just a turn away from the Coronado Bay Bridge.
