Stroll and shop in a charming retro neighborhood

Tour a retro neighborhood

The cool look of white stucco and tile roofs was all the rage in Southern California in the 1920s, and San Diego’s Kensington neighborhood is a prime example of the Spanish-inspired trend.

Look for Andalusian architectural touches―like whimsical tower entries and decorated chimneys―on a walk through the palm-lined streets. And Kensington loves to get gussied up for the holidays; go at night to see homes aglow.
