From miles of 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 here.
Home to Palomar College and California State University San Marcos, the City has also become the heart of education in San Diego North.
Additionally, 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.
A dedication to parks and community services is another priority for the City of San Marcos. In addition to its rich recreational and cultural programs for children, teens, adults, and seniors, the City has constructed 60 miles of trails, 29 new parks and 11 recreation centers over the past 25 years.
Quality community development like the Creekside Marketplace, Nordahl Center and Grand Plaza have all become popular shopping and dining destinations, and plans for thoughtful future developments like the San Marcos Downtown Creek District, Palomar Station and University Village will quickly put San Marcos on the map as a regional shopping, dining and entertainment destination.
These elements all combine together to create the unique community that is San Marcos.
