In particular North Park's Ray Street has it's Ray at Night art gallery open house program. I've never been, but I've seen it advertised. All of the other areas Mewzikguy has mentioned are good choices too. I'd also have to give some Funkster points to South Park. That's just the vibe that I get from it.

Hillcrest is awesome if you don't mind a predominantly gay population. It's a happening place, but not crazy hectic. If you like crazy, hectic, downtown is pretty artsy. Also, you'll like Little Italy, too. All areas are on the higher end of the price range, but worth it. You can find something downtown probably for cheaper, but be aware of the sketchy parts of downtown (anything higher than 9th street and below G Street).

Yeah, the east part of downtown has really been coming around the last few years. What are they calling it, the East Village? And Golden Hill also has been coming around the last few years. We loved living in Golden Hill. Very central location. Easy to get downtown and to South and North Park and Hillcrest and Balboa Park and one of the coolest joints in San Diego is there: The Turf Club.
