The City of San Marcos is a very well planned and appealing area of Northern San Diego County. It is home to both Palomar College and San Marcos State University. The public school system is highly regarded and the hills surrounding the city make for a pleasant backdrop throughout the area. The location is ideal for both inland and coastal access and the city also enjoys ocean breezes keeping it naturally a few degrees cooler in the hot summer months than other inland areas. Growth in the area over the past decade has been brisk but well organized creating a delightful family oriented environment with plenty of amenities for residents. San Marcos is a relatively affordable area to search for a home and is positioned to be a sound investment for future decades to come.
