North Park is located north/east of Balboa park. It boasts eclectic restaurants and cafés, hip bars and nightclubs and art galleries along Ray Street. Some of the finest collection of early 20th century homes can be found here.
Architectural diversity exists throughout North Park, but the predominant style is Craftsman. Craftsman cottages and bungalows can be seen throughout all of North Park. In fact some of the best examples of the Craftsman style can be found in the area of North Park called Morley Field where homes designed by Craftsman Master David Owen Dryden still stand.

Caffe Calabria in North Park makes the most authentic Italian espresso I have tried so far in San Diego. If you are an espresso lover this place is a must. The espresso here is thick, creamy and served with sparkling water (Frizzante) just like in good old Italia. The panini are delicious! Today I had the sopresata which is a small panini with spicy Italian salami and a bit of shaved Grana Padano cheese. True to Italian form there are only a few thinly sliced pieces of salami on a crusty roll, which is all that is really needed.
Caffe Calabria has been working on the introduction of authentic Napoliatano pizza (pizza of Naples) for some time and hopefully this will be available soon. For now, however, it is enough just to drop on bu to have an amazing espresso and perhaps a panini or two.

San Diego is known for its active lifestyle. Hot Yoga, yoga done in a heated room, is becoming one of the hippest new things to do. When my friend told me to try out hot yoga my first reaction was “no way, I hate the heat”. But after a little bit of convincing I decided to try it out.
Corepower Yoga, San Diego’s hot yoga source, helps increase your strength and flexibility, lose weight and manage stress. Classes range from beginning (using less heat) to advanced (the hottest classes). And believe it or not, you don’t notice the heat as much as you would think.
