Golden Hill is conveniently located off the 5 and 94 freeways. From downtown it is accessible via Broadway and C Streets. From the North Park area, either 30th Street or Pershing Drive to 26th Street will deliver you to the heart of the neighborhood.
The Tour de Fat is held annually in Golden Hill Park, partially because of the abundance of bike riders and bike trails. Golden Hill is centrally located and is a quick bike commute to Padres games at Petco Park and to work in Downtown San Diego. Mountain Biking trails are available throughout Florida Canyon right down the street. It is also a fun eight mile ride to Mission and Pacific Beach. Just make sure you can bomb down the hills.
Golden Hill is accessible via MTS Bus, Route 2, traveling from Downtown San Diego to Normal Heights. Going right through the center of town and passing all the Golden Hill landmarks, at $2.25 it makes for an affordable and environmentally friendly night on the town.
