North Clairemont, only a few minutes from central Clairemont, is mainly owner occupied houses with income properties scattered throughout. It is very close to UTC Mall; another overpopulated area with too many people and not enough room. The UTC mall is definitely one of the best in the city though and very spread out, although its parking is a nightmare so much so that it feels like Christmas all year round. Rent in this area is a bit higher as it mainly residential and very close to La Jolla, but it is a safe area to live in. There’s not much of a nightlife, but there are some great places to eat there.
