Want to live in the country but stay close to the city? Valley Center, located northeast of Escondido, offers an authentic country vibe within 50 minutes of downtown San Diego. The 150-year-old town prides itself for remaining true to its roots and supporting local businesses over big chain department stores.
The small town of just over 9,200 residents has grown in recent years but maintains a simple charm and country way of life. Known for embracing its old-fashioned heritage, Valley Center hosts an annual event called "Western Days." Usually held over Memorial Day weekend, the festivities include a parade and rodeo. Valley Center also supports a strong agricultural community and is known for growing avocados and citrus fruit.
The area offers a variety of fun outdoor activities in the beautiful Pauma Valley and Palomar Mountain. Other popular activities in the area are the two local casinos: Harrah's Rincon and Valley View.
The Valley Center-Pauma School District provides four elementary schools, a middle school and a high school.
