SOLANA BEACH


The city's name translates aptly from Spanish as "sunny beach." The population includes the residents of Lomas Santa Fe, a large golf and residential development with homes and condos built right around beautiful rolling-green fairways.


DEL MAR


Besides its spectacular ocean views, one of Del Mar's best assets is its protective population. Residents are always doing something to improve life in their tiny city, which swells each summer during the fair and horse races. A very high percentage of residents are college professors, scientists and similar professionals. Spanish for "by the sea", began to grow when its two founders began selling 50x140 foot lots in the midst of a land boom in the late 1880's. When the South Coast Land Company bought the vacant land and built a resort with the Stratford Inn being the centerpiece, Del Mar began to flourish and finally received electricity from San Diego Gas and Electric in the late 1920s. It was at this time that Del Mar started developing its residential areas. It wasn't until 1958 that Del Mar residents began to debate whether the area should stay as an area of the county of San Diego, become part of the City of San Diego, or attempt independence through incorporation. In 1959, residents chose incorporation and established a five-member City Council. Today, the City of Del Mar is two square miles of coastal land with a population of about 5000. The main attraction of visitors is still the beach and sunny weather. Of course, the annual Del Mar Fair and the well-known Del Mar Racetrack bring in people from the surrounding area and beyond.

Residents of the family oriented community enjoy a rural lifestyle with access to all of the amenities that Southern California has to offer. Olivenhain students attend the Rancho Santa Fe School District, one of the top rated districts in the state. The real estate market is made up almost exclusively of single-family homes. Properties range in price from $500,000 to $5 million and more for large estate homes with hilltop views. Many homes have equestrian facilities. Land is also available for custom homes.
