Linda Vista (Spanish for "Pretty View") is a community in San Diego, California, United States. It is east of Mission Bay, north of Mission Valley, and south-east of Tecolote Canyon. It lies on a mesa overlooking Mission Valley to the south and Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean to the west. It is also home to the University of San Diego.

Linda Vista is located in City Council District 7 and is currently represented by Councilmember Scott Sherman.

Many of the homes in Linda Vista were built in 1940 as part of a government project to house aircraft workers for the war effort.

Linda Vista was home of the very first mall-type shopping center in the United States, which was dedicated by Eleanor Roosevelt. It included a movie theater.

There was an old Linda Vista established in 1886, which was likely centered on San Clemente Canyon. However, it ceased to exist after it was heavily damaged by the 1916 flood.
