In the area of Linda Vista, you’ll find Birdland quietly tucked away; so much so, that even locals don’t even know it exists. Owners of income property in Birdland have always done well. Most find their way to it due to its low cost as it’s 2% lower than the average San Diego cost of living. As far as crime, however, it’s not exactly the safest area and there’s not too much to do beyond grabbing a bit to eat. Luckily for the residents, they are just a skip away from both Fashion and Mission Valley areas to the East and Ocean Beach and Pacific to the West.
