Retiring in San Diego

With a little something for everyone, San Diego makes a particularly great place to retire. From great weather to beautiful beaches and hiking, to phenomenal restaurants and museums, the list of ways to spend your new-found free time is almost endless!

Thinking about retiring in San Diego, America’s Finest City? One of the most important things to consider is location, location, location.

It may be a cliche, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true! You’ve probably thought about what you want your retirement to look like, and what part of San Diego you live in plays a big role in that lifestyle. San Diego (and neighboring North County) consists of a wide range of neighborhoods and communities, each with their own character, from laid-back beach towns to bustling downtown streets.

  • Are there activities or attractions you’ll want to be close to?
  • Do you prefer an urban condo (benefit: no more yardwork!) or a suburban estate (benefit: no road noise!)?
  • Do you dream of waking up to a sea breeze or a mountain view?

San Diego truly has it all, so it’s just a matter of knowing what you want and where to look for it!

You may be kissing your daily commute goodbye, but you should still think about travel times as well. If you plan to travel to all of those bucket-list locations you’ve been dreaming about, you may want to choose a property with convenient access to the airport and freeways. On the other hand, if you plan on hunkering down and finally writing that book, being “close to everything” might not matter as much to you.

Location will also play a role in how much space you can get in a property. Are you looking for a home that can hold all the grandkids during summer vacation? You probably won’t be interested in looking in an urban neighborhood like the Gaslamp District; a property in a more suburban location like Rancho Santa Fe or Rancho Penasquitos may be a better fit. Are you hoping to downsize? A condo in Little Italy or Mission Valley could be the perfect option.

Of course, location also plays a role in price point, so it’s important to know your budget and financial goals and to understand how far your money can stretch in your desired San Diego neighborhood. Retiring on the beach in San Diego could be a dream come true, but it will also come with a higher price tag than a home further inland.
