What happens when a sleepy beach town starts transforming? Surfers move in. Beach and surf revolution begins. Next, college students make it a bustling neighborhood of their own. Then come the entrepreneurs and work professionals, demanding better restaurants, better bars, better fitness options, and of course their own farmers market. Cost of living starts going up, pushing out original residents. Happened in New York City in the 80’s, then San Francisco in the 90’s. Now gentrification is spreading across the United States and perhaps the world. Join us in exploring this topic with Jewel of the Pacific. In the heart of San Diego, California. Pacific Beach.
