Bay Ho Neighborhood Guide

Bay Ho got its unusual name from its proximity to the Bay. The interjection at the end was meant to draw attention towards the Bay in the same way that sailors would say, “Land ho!” in old-timey stories. It’s part of Clairemont, along with North Clairemont, Clairemont Mesa East, Clairemont Mesa West, and Bay Park. Clairemont was built in the 1930s, designed to be one of the first self-contained suburbs in the country. Nowadays it’s a diverse neighborhood with fairly large Asian and Hispanic populations.

The low crime rates (21% lower than the San Diego average) and plentiful amenities make Bay Ho a great place to raise a family. Most of the real estate is made up of detached homes, with some townhouses and condos.

Tecolote Canyon Natural Park and Marian Bear Memorial Park are nearby, filled with trails for hiking and biking, and offering almost 1,400 acres of nature to explore. There are also plenty of places to shop, eat, and have a good time.
