Solana Beach: Friendly and relaxed environment
Gorgeous beaches, a family-friendly environment, and a relaxed, upscale coastal lifestyle—they’re just a few of the reasons Solana Beach was named one of Coastal Living’s “Dream Towns.” Bordered by Encinitas to the north, Del Mar to the south, and within a 30-minute drive to downtown San Diego, Solana Beach offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the spoils of a charming North County beachfront town with great access to everything that makes living in San Diego so fantastic.
Solana Beach measures just 3.6 square miles, with more than 1.5 miles of beaches. The most popular is Fletcher Cove, with a family-friendly shore framed by dramatic cliffs and great opportunities for shell-collecting. Just above, Fletcher Cove Park offers a kids’ play area, basketball court, and picnic tables overlooking the Pacific. Tide Beach and Seaside are favorite surfing spots in the city.
Solana Beach is also known for its charming eateries and shops, renowned arts and music venues, and abundant recreational opportunities. The Cedros Design District is an upscale amenity that fuels the city’s economy and provides countless opportunities for shopping, dining, leisure, and entertainment. Here, you’ll find more than 85 art galleries, boutiques, antique stores, and cafes, as well as the popular, local farmer’s market on Sundays. Belly Up, a favorite live music space that’s been around for 45 years, is also located on Cedros Avenue. Crush, a casual Italian restaurant on the coast, is another popular option for live music seven days a week.
For many in Solana Beach, the centerpiece of recreation and social life is the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. This private club offers a variety of membership options to take advantage of: an 18-hole championship golf course; an executive golf course; a driving range; chipping and putting greens; a pro shop; 14 tennis courts; four pickleball courts; several pools and hot tubs; a fitness center; spa services; and a number of dining options. There is also child care on-site and tournaments, social events, and mixers all throughout the year.
San Dieguito County Park also offers abundant recreation, with playgrounds, a basketball court, walking and hiking trails, and exercise stations, as well as picnic tables and barbecue grills. Additional hiking options in the city can be found at Stonebridge Trail, La Orilla Trail, and the San Elijo Lagoon Trail.
The city boasts a wide range of spectacular real estate options, with luxury properties on the bluffs overlooking the water, high-end homes in planned communities east of I-5, and a range of attached and single-family homes in between. This idyllic family city also offers great schools in two districts: The San Dieguito Union High School District and the Solana Beach School District. Solana Beach also has the distinction of being the first city in the continental United States to prohibit smoking on public beaches. You can thank the city for pioneering this ban, which is now enforced in many other coastal towns across the state.
For coastal living with an upscale bent and a location that’s second-to-none, you can’t beat Solana Beach.
