General Description

An excellent southern California option

San Carlos is a neighborhood on the east side of San Diego. Located quite close to the large Mission Trails regional park, this is a close-knit and affluent community. San Carlos is bordered by Lake Murray, Navajo, Del Cerro, the Mission Trails Park, and Tierrasanta, as well as the city of La Mesa. The community was developed by Carlos Tavares after WWII and also named after him.

San Carlos is undoubtedly one of the most popular options for families and individuals in search of an all-American town to call their home. This is because the community has so much to offer in terms of friendly people and excellent housing. It’s also very conveniently located at just ten miles from downtown San Diego and within driving distance of other vibrant California communities.

Wondering what else makes San Carlos an excellent place to live?

First, you can enjoy the beautiful homes in the community. Although the majority of the homes here are about 40 years old, they have been upgraded to suit modern life while retaining their classic designs.

You also don’t have to worry about the education, because San Carlos features excellent schools. You will find many elementary schools in town, including:

  • Dillard Elementary School
  • Gage Elementary School
  • Benchley-Weinberger Elementary School
  • Green Elementary School

 

About two miles away, you will find Grossmont College, while the San Diego State University is only six miles away. The middle schools in San Carlos include Pershing Middle School and Lewis Middle School, while Patrick Henry High School serves San Carlos and two neighboring communities, Del Cerro and Allied Gardens.

Another thing that makes the community an excellent place to live is that it has a friendly, low-key community feel, and most residents are working people. Many individuals in San Carlos enjoy outdoor activities such as camping and mountain hiking. There is sufficient provision for recreation, so if you’re looking for places to spend your free time, you have a full range of options.

More Features

The Pershing Middle School field is open to the public after school, and it’s a popular spot for basketball, tennis, running, and soccer. Other recreation centers include the Fletcher Hills Community Center—which features a pool that people use during summer—and the San Carlos Community Park and Rec Center.

You will find multiple golf courses in the town, including the San Carlos Golf Course and the Mission Trails Golf Course. There are movie theaters, shopping malls, and the popular Parkway Plaza, which is perfect for summer shopping. Lake Murray, which is just three miles away, is a favorite natural destination for residents with its walking and bike paths. There are small boats for rent which can be used for a fun day of fishing. For more serious fishing enthusiasts, Santee Lake is about seven miles away and offers excellent fishing with no need for a license.

Are you searching for a community that has everything to offer families and working professionals alike? San Carlos is an excellent southern California option.
