San Marcos

San Marcos is a well rounded, vibrant, community that offers a place where residents can live, work and play. Located in the beautiful foothills of northern San Diego County. From miles of hiking trails in the local hills, to unique dining and shopping opportunities in its retail centers, San Marcos has all the ingredients that make living enjoyable.

Just a 35-mile drive south takes you to downtown San Diego, while a short jaunt west takes you to the majestic shores of the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Although San Marcos has experienced rapid growth over the last decade, it continues to maintain the small town atmosphere and values that attracted so many new residents. Home to Palomar College and California State University San Marcos, the City has also become the heart of education in San Diego North. As one of the fourth safest cities in San Diego County, San Marcos works diligently to maintain its low crime rate, historically having one of the largest sheriff’s contracts in the county. It also has some of the best fire emergency response times around.

San Marcos is known for having some of the best restaurants in North County. Old California Restaurant Row features a large concentration of restaurants offering a variety of cuisines.[
