Real estate development began in 1910 and during the 1920s and 1930s Hillcrest was considered a suburban shopping area for downtown San Diego. In 1940 the "HILLCREST" lighted sign at the intersection of University and Fifth Avenue was first erected, then later restored in 1977 and rebuilt in 1987.

Hillcrest is the residential and commercial hub of San Diego's gay and lesbian community. Prominent gay bars are mostly found within Hillcrest. An annual gay parade takes place in Hillcrest. Festivities take place the last weekend in July. The San Diego Gay Pride parade is considered to be the largest civic event in the city of San Diego, attracting over 150,000 people. Hillcrest’s CityFest is another annual street festival which features food, live entertainment, a beer garden and street vendors and takes place annually in August.

Nearby Balboa Park provides recreational and cultural opportunities to Hillcrest residents, as does its proximity to downtown. Other regular events in Hillcrest include a weekly farmers market, Book Fair and Mardi Gras.

Hillcrest and Mission Hills are also home to Scripps Mercy Hospital and the UCSD Medical Center.
