There’s a reason living in North County San Diego is soooo expensive: it’s awesome here. And it’s not just the weather. Many of us make it home because of the beaches, parks, good schools, restaurants, breweries, wineries, shopping, and endless recreational activities throughout the county.

Plus there are so many wonderful people, churches, businesses and organizations working to make a great place even greater. OK, the sunshine is a BIG plus! And for me (Paul), hanging at the beach or hiking the many trails is good for the soul. And my doggo, Tripp, likes it too.

But, let's break it down! The top reasons to move to North County San Diego and live the North County lifestyle include:

Weather -- The region experiences a Mediterranean climate, which means that it is typically warm and dry during the summer months and cooler and wetter in the winter. Average temperatures range from the mid-60s to the mid-70s throughout the year, making it a perfect destination for those seeking an escape from harsher climates. The area also benefits from the oceanic influence, which helps to keep temperatures relatively stable and mitigate extreme weather conditions. While occasional heat waves and winter storms are possible, North County San Diego's weather is generally mild and enjoyable, making it a popular destination for outdoor activities and beachgoers.

Beaches -- Some of the most popular beaches in North County San Diego include Del Mar Beach, Moonlight Beach, and Carlsbad State Beach, also known as Tamarack Beach. Del Mar Beach is known for its wide sandy expanse and picturesque views of the Pacific Ocean. Moonlight Beach is a favorite among families with its playground and volleyball courts. Tamarack Beach is a popular spot for surfing and swimming and just relaxing on the sand. Note there are dozens of beaches between Del Mar and Oceanside make it an awesome place to live if you love the beach.

Outdoor Living -- This is what So Cal living is all about, and you can expect to spend a lot of time outside no matter which San Diego community you live in.

Events -- North County San Diego is a hub of cultural and social activities, with a plethora of popular events taking place throughout the year. From music festivals to food fairs, there's something for everyone in this vibrant region. One of the most popular events is the San Diego County Fair (formerly Del Mar Fair), which attracts visitors from all over the country with its exciting rides, delicious food, and diverse range of entertainment. Another favorite is the Carlsbad Village Street Faire, which showcases over 850 vendors with an array of unique crafts, clothing, and gifts. The Del Mar Races are also a must-attend event, with thrilling horse races and live music performances. Other notable events include the San Diego International Film Festival, the Oceanside International Film Festival, and the Vista Strawberry Festival. With so many exciting options, North County San Diego is the perfect destination for those who love to explore and experience new things.

From casual beachside cafes to upscale fine dining establishments, there's no shortage of options. With fresh seafood, locally sourced produce, and an abundance of international flavors, the dining scene in North County is as diverse as it is delicious.

When it comes to bars and wine, the area has plenty to offer as well.
