The place you'll gonna "choose"
In Spanish, the word “Elijo” means “I choose.” The San Diego community San Elijo Hills gets its name from this theme of choice: San Diego homebuyers have been opting to move to this community since the first homes were finished in 2001.
San Elijo Hills has continued its popularity among families and professionals seeking a small-town feel with metropolitan amenities—including numerous entertainment, dining, and shopping options, as well as award-winning schools and extensive outdoor recreation. In fact, San Elijo Hills was named Master Planned Community of the Year in 2002.
The area comprises thousands of homes, ranging from townhomes to sprawling hilltop residences with views of the ocean, all located within highly walkable neighborhoods. New developments continue to expand the offerings for homebuyers seeking an established community and a brand-new home.
Located in the hills of northern San Diego County and just six miles from the Pacific, San Elijo Hills offers more than 18 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails and 1,000 acres of parkland and green space. The three neighborhood parks in the community include the 19-acre San Elijo Hills Park, which features a lighted soccer field, an off-leash dog area, and a large community center.
The San Marcos School District provides excellent educational opportunities at every level, and California State University San Marcos and Palomar College are also located nearby for postsecondary options. San Elijo Hills’ town center is a community gathering place created in the spirt of a traditional town square, bringing together several eateries, shops, and neighborhood conveniences. You can grab a cup of coffee, take a yoga class, shop for groceries, browse new clothes, and have them cleaned, all in the same place.
Adding to the community feel are the numerous local clubs and organizations: the San Elijo Hills Surf Club, San Elijo Hills Women’s Club, San Elijo Hills American Youth Soccer Organization, San Elijo Flyers, and San Elijo Hills Running Club. If that list isn’t long enough for you, there’s also a year-round calendar of locally hosted events and activities. Residents of San Elijo Hills enjoy an annual Oktoberfest, tree-lighting ceremonies, and Easter egg hunts, and frequent outdoor concerts and movies in the park.
San Elijo residents enjoy countless ways to get involved and enjoy time with neighbors and friends. Take a trip to this stunning San Diego community today and find out for yourself why it’s so popular among residents and visitors alike!
