Welcome to Kensington
This upscale enclave on the southeast rim of Mission Valley is picturesque, and is known for its distinct California Spanish-style single family homes. It's a peaceful pocket amid the hub of the inner city. There's a tiny business district along the single main artery, Adams Avenue with restaurants, bars, a movie theatre, gelato and small businesses.
Like the other appealing neighborhoods in town, Kensington is a great, compact walking neighborhood. Just stroll through the winding roads north of Adams Avenue and admire the homes that exude character. Take in the 3-block business district along Adams of local businesses, eateries, shops and more.
