About Normal Heights, San Diego, CA
Normal Heights was named for the San Diego Normal School, a teacher’s college that was the forerunner to San Diego State University. Book ended on the west by University Heights and Kensington on the east, Normal Heights completes the Adams Avenue neighborhood trifecta along the main corridor. Diverse apartment dwellings on the south side of Adams, quiet single-family homes on the north side.
What’s “normal” today is to find antique stores, book stores, coffee shops and restaurants stretched out for blocks in the Adams Avenue central business district.
