Discover College Area

True to its name, the culture of the College Area in San Diego is heavily influenced by its proximity to San Diego State University. The dining options reflect the area's eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary. Local Italian eateries offer hearty and authentic dishes, and the Mexican cuisine has a fresh Baja slant.
