Set at the foot of North San Diego’s rolling hills, Bonsall is the place to live if you crave a more country lifestyle. The unique vibe of Bonsall is a stark departure from the more urban and fast-paced energy of other neighborhoods. “Rustic”, “nature”, and “relaxed” are some of the words commonly associated with life in Bonsall. If you’re into farming and riding horses, then a house in Bonsall should be on your radar. Bonsall is home to a wonderful wildlife rescue center called “Wild Wonders” that aims to educate the public about wildlife and the protection of our planet.
The area is one of the least populated in all of San Diego County. Most residents here opt to own their houses as opposed to renting. The school district in Bonsall is great, and along with its smaller population, it makes the area a nice choice to raise kids in.
One of its biggest upsides is the comfortable year-round climate, being described as Mediterranean-like, which simply means year-round comfort without drastic spikes and dips in temperature and humidity.
Bonsall has a higher average home selling price, adding to higher than the average cost of living and entertainment rates. The area is not the cheapest to settle down in, but the tradeoff here is clear. A neighborhood offering a more country lifestyle right in San Diego, with less crime than the national average, a great climate all year round, an area that is as close to nature as you can get and is perfect for raising a family.
