Carmel Valley is a master-planned community sited in the northwestern bend of San Diego. The district is a segment of the North County Coastal region of San Diego County. Composed of various retail outlets, restaurants, residential and hotel units, warehouses, and commercial offices, the disparate community is known for quality living in one of the best provinces of Southern California.
The region is not lacking for established businesses either. Companies like US Bank, The Oracle Corporation, and Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, amongst others, all have offices in the community. In fact, a huge percentage of residents are employed at these large conglomerates.
The area is an awe-inspiring countrified river valley, nuzzled into the lofty Santa Lucia range. What’s more, being one of the finest wine growing regions in California enhances the distinctiveness and richness of the area. Garland Ranch Regional Park has over 4000 acres and is available for daily use. It is renowned for its pristine mountain trails where residents and visitors alike can go horseback riding, biking, and hiking along the willow-sheathed coast of the Carmel River. Other niceties include functioning horse ranches, with most providing clinics and spaces for boarding horses.
The main road, that goes by the same name as the city, begins at Scenic Highway-1 and navigates eastward, meandering along the river past countless contingencies for first-class wine tasting, spectacular dining, entertainment, and recreation. The region also has charming country inns, several high-class resorts, and three championship golf courses. The I-5 interstate shapes the region’s western frontier and is divided by a state highway. This well-organized transportation system can dart residents into the downtown section of San Diego in a matter of minutes and into Los Angeles within a short time.
The weather in the district is lovely with a moderate warm temperature throughout the year. During the summer the temperature hovers around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, winter gets to about 60, and in the fall or Indian Summer, the temperature reaches the mid 70s or higher. Many call this period the best weather of the year. The district deserves its “sunny” label because its nearby neighbors to the west like Carmel By The Sea, Monterey, and Pacific Grove, all have a tendency to get foggy, similar to San Francisco weather.
