The San Diego neighborhood of Mira Mesa is one of the city’s largest and most active, giving people plenty of opportunities for work and play.

Mira Mesa is located in the heart of San Diego’s business and technology park and shares a border with the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. Both locations serve as major employment hubs for residents in Mira Mesa and the San Diego area, and the presence of both the military and the technology industry serve a significant role in the community’s culture. A number of major biomedical, pharmaceutical and technological firms make their headquarters in Mira Mesa, providing even more employment opportunities.

However, once they’re out of work for the day, Mira Mesa residents will find no shortage of ways to enjoy their time off. The Mira Mesa Street Fair, held each September since 1999, has become a community favorite, providing a fun mix of entertainment, food and culture. The city also holds an annual Fourth of July parade and fireworks event, and residents can bring their children to the Halloween celebration at the Mira Mesa Recreation Center and the Monster Manor – a local “haunted” house.

Cultural groups also hold a variety of celebrations around Mira Mesa, to the delight of residents, while a local teen center hosts weekly concerts for area youth.
