Bonsall and Bonsall
Bonsall is located just 10 miles inland from the coast in North San Diego County.  With its small population of about 4000, and its large estate homes, equestrian estates, and avocado groves, Bonsall is resembles the better-known community of Rancho Santa Fe.
Bonsall features a nice mix of custom estate homes, single family dwellings, and townhouse and condominium homes.  River Village Shopping Center is a lovely open air Mediterranean-styled center featuring a major grocery store, several restaurants, shops, a day-spa, various businesses, and a movie theater.  The Bonsall Center features the local Post Office, a veterinarian and animal hospital, and various restaurants and shops. The San Luis Rey Golf Club sits in the river valley, offering a restaurant, lodging, and golf, of course!
The San Luis Rey River generally separates Bonsall from Fallbrook.  County planning and zoning features have organized Bonsall into an area of concentrated single-family homes, townhouses, and condominiums, distinctly separate from the rolling estates and groves which are generally set in the rolling coastal foothills.
Fallbrook is a rural community located in the coastal foothills of North San Diego County, just 12 miles from the coast.  It is known as "the land between two rivers."  The San Luis Rey River runs along the southern border of Fallbrook, following Highway 76 to the Pacific Ocean.  The Santa Margarita River meanders from Riverside County, through the northern part of Fallbrook known as DeLuz, then into Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base and on to the sea.
Fallbrook is easily accessed from coast via Highway 76 - it''s just 12 miles from Interstate 5 to South Mission Road, our main access road.  Interstate 15 provides direct access to Escondido and inland San Diego areas, as well as Temecula and Riverside County.
Fallbrook was founded about 1869 in the area of Live Oak Park, by the Reche family, which named the community after their home in Pennsylvania.  Beautiful rolling hills and majestic ancient oaks characterize the area.  Fallbrook is known as The Avocado Capital of the World, and the town hosts an annual Avocado Festival each year in April. 
Many people move to Fallbrook to enjoy the benefits of rural living, while maintaining the convenience of the urban amenities in nearby San Diego, and Orange and Riverside Counties.  Many houses sit on 1 to 4 acre plots, providing the private, relaxing lifestyle so valued by Fallbrook residents.
We call our downtown area "The Village" - it''s located on Main Avenue and retains its charm with delightfully preserved brick buildings and wide pedestrian walkways.  A haven for artists, Fallbrook was chosen in 2006 as one of 100 Best Art Towns in America by author John Villani.  Stroll Main Avenue in The Village to enjoy Fallbrook''s numerous art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, delicatessens, and charming shops.
The Fallbrook Land Conservancy has acquired over 1850 acres of open space on 10 preserves in San Diego County.  These preserves offer a safe haven for wildlife and native plant species.  Enjoy the bucolic Los Jilgueros Preserve, with its ponds, oak and sycamore trees, and 1.5 mile gentle walking trail.
