A Choice of Ambience, Terrain and Climate-

We have divided North San Diego County into 3 unique areas, each is somewhat different in ambience, terrain and climate:

The cool and beautiful Coastal Area.

The somewhat more hilly but picturesque Near-Coast Area that is conveniently located "near everything" in North County.

The hills and valleys of the semi-rural Inland Area where the suns shines 9 out of 10 days, throughout the year.

A Large Choice of Active Retirement Communities-

Our towns and cities also offer a wide variety of active retirement communities including fifty-eight, Age 55+ Manufactured/Mobile Home Communities (of which 3 are golf communities) and 14 Senior Communities (of which 4 are golf communities). In addition, they offer a gigantic selection of senior-friendly, All-Age Communities. Most of our Senior communities have recreation centers that provide a wide assortment of additional activities for their residents. Because of our hilly terrain, many of our homes also have great views;  of city lights, of hills and valleys and of distant mountains. Some homes have views of the Pacific Ocean with its cooling ocean breezes that help provide year-round comfort.
