Rancho Bernardo Real Estate Information

Nestled just east of the I-15 interstate the North County Inland town of Rancho Bernardo is a hilly master-planned community that serves the city of San Diego that is located about 20 miles south. Rancho Bernardo is north of Carmel Mountain Ranch, northwest of Poway, and south of the much larger city of Escondido. The Poway Unified School District, based just south of Rancho Bernardo in the city of Poway, serves the students of Rancho Bernardo and even operates Rancho Bernardo High School in the community. The campus hosts about 2,800 students and includes 150 faculty members. The esteemed school has won a number of awards both regionally and nationally.

One of the biggest events in Rancho Bernardo is the annual RB Alive! Street Expo and Fair, a grand event that brings up to 60,000 people to the fairgrounds. Featuring musical entertainment, artistic performances, carnival rides, historic displays, business booths, and a variety of food showcases, RB Alive! works to bring together the community in a celebration of the area’s significant successes.

Golfing is a popular method of recreation for the people of Rancho Bernardo. Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Course, Rancho Bernardo Golf Course, Oaks North Golf Course, Maderas Golf Club, and Stoneridge Country Club all offer convenient and local courses to residents for use year-round. For those Rancho Bernardo residents not interested in golfing, the large Rancho Bernardo Community Park features a number of facilities and open grass fields for everything ranging from simple walks and family picnics to soccer tournaments and art fairs.

Due to Rancho Bernardo’s relatively small size, residents of Rancho Bernardo share many of the resources in Escondido. The trip to Escondido just takes a few moments on the interstate and includes a scenic pass over the expansive Lake Hodges that lies between the two communities. Lake Hodges is a popular hotspot in the summer because of the water sports and fishing that have become staples of vacation life for the people of Rancho Bernardo and Escondido. San Diego Wild Animal Park, part of the world renown San Diego Zoo, allows guests to view global animals in an open habitat where they are not encaged but rather roam, graze, and fly as they would in the wilderness.
