A Day in the Life of the University Heights Food Scene

One of the best and worst parts about living in the University Heights neighborhood of San Diego, California is the incredible food scene along Park Boulevard.

I wish that I had the willpower to avoid eating out all the time, but I love having so many great options within walking distance of my front door. So, when it came to picking a subject for my "A Day in the Life" photojournalism project, I had no other choice than to feature the neighborhood's food scene as my muse.

University Heights is home to a diverse community of restaurants, cafes, bars and a brewery that continues to grow as a foodie destination in the San Diego region. Featuring everything from traditional Thai cuisine and pizza to craft cocktails and microbrew ales, the community is centered around a strip of restaurants on Park Boulevard that inspire patrons to taste outside the box.
