Situated at the base of Palomar Mountain, the area is famous for both its agricultural heritage and the upscale communities calling it home. Visitors and new residents will find the breathtaking vistas and a close-knit community comforting and a joy to experience.
The Pala-Pauma Valley area is home to the Pala Indian Reservation and the Pauma Casino. The casino is one of the area’s tourist spots and serves one of its more famous claims to fame. Another famous landmark of the neighborhood is the Pauma Valley Country Club, which offers tons of services and amenities; most notable is its excellent golf course that attracts players worldwide.
The fun in the valley isn’t all indoors, mind you. In fact, the area may be even more famous for its views and all the outdoor activities you can enjoy. Calling the area “scenic” would be an understatement. The views here are out of this world, and enjoying them while trying the fantastic trails and crags of the Palomar Mountain State Park is a must-try. There is also the Palomar Observatory and the Boucher Hill Fire Lookout, where you can savor the fresh mountain air, the great view of the valley, and all the stars during clear nights. For a more thrilling night out, try the La Jolla Zip Zoom, the area’s outdoor zip line facility that offers ziplines from 300 feet to about 2,700 feet.
Check out the Pala-Pauma Valley if you are looking for a more laidback, outdoorsy, adult-focused place to live in.
