Welcome to San Marcos

The city of San Marcos is located in the beautiful foothills of northern San Diego County, just 35 miles from downtown San Diego and a short drive to the coast. While the city continues to grow in popularity, it has still maintained its small-town atmosphere and welcoming sense of community. Homeowners have easy access to major employers and higher education, including Palomar College and California State University San Marcos. Opportunities for outdoor leisure and adventure are abundant, with 29 community parks and 11 recreation centers — an extensive 70-mile trail network is also popular for hiking, biking, running and equestrian use. San Marcos residents also enjoy a diversity of cultural programs for every age group from children to seniors. Additional community highlights include:

  • SPRINTER Hybrid Rail Transit System. Relax and take the train for leisure and business travel. The east-west rail spans 22 miles and connects Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido, serving 15 stations along Highway 78.
  • Double Peak Park. This rugged, 200-acre park offers hiking trails that lead to a summit with spectacular ocean views. Other amenities include an amphitheater, picnic tables, play equipment and telescope.

*Consistent with California energy regulations, new homes must be equipped with solar panels. These are not included in the posted price, but may be leased for a monthly payment, or purchased for an additional cost that may be eligible for mortgage financing. The required size of the solar system depends on several factors, including home size and climate zone. The installed solar system may reduce your monthly local electric utility company bill. For more information, see sales agent and Solar Energy System Addendum.
