Carmel Valley

Carmel Valley is one of the fastest growing communities located north of the San Diego county. It started out as an agricultural area with a number of horse farms. When the residential developments began around 1983, the community rapidly expanded to encompass the entire 92130 zip code. It has a variety of housing options like condos, townhomes, and single-family homes. Many condos and townhomes go for an average price of about $200,000 and can go as high as $800,000. Single family homes cost a bit more with a price range that can go up in millions of dollars.

Camel Valley is also easily accessible from other parts of San Diego. It is located not far from the popular attractions at Del Mar and is also located near the large employment centers of Sorrento Valley and La Jolla. Carmel Valley Village has a number of wine tasting rooms, as well as several high-end hotels affiliated with the wineries. Wineries with tasting rooms in Carmel Valley include Bernardus, Boëté, Chateau Julien, Chateau Sinnet, Galante, Georis, Heller Estate, Joullian Village, Joyce Vineyards, Parsonage, San Saba and Talbott. A public bus, called the Grapevine Express Route 24 and run by Monterey-Salinas Transit, stops at most of these tasting rooms.
