Rancho Santa Fe is located close enough to the coast to enjoy a quick drive to the beach, and just far enough away from the coast to enjoy a relatively fog-free and Mediterranean climate. Rancho Santa Fe has a long reputation for being one of the highest per capita income communities in the country with a total population of approximately 3,200 residents. Rancho Santa Fe is made up primarily of residential housing with a few shopping centers, schools, and local eateries.
Well-known with the "horse crowd", Rancho Santa Fe enjoys a very laid-back, casual atmosphere; a wonderful place to be for those who own, ride and show. And polo? That, too!
Golf is another favorite of the Rancho Santa Fe crowd with many private communities and courses to choose from. Rancho Santa Fe is home to courses at The Bridges, The Farms Golf Club, Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, Fairbanks Ranch Country Club and Del Mar Country Club.
For the non-golfers, you'll find world class tennis and fitness at Rancho Valencia Resort. End your day with a message and one of The Pony Room's classic margaritas; you'll not be disappointed.
Rancho Santa Fe is served by the Rancho Santa Fe School School District and several private schools, as well. Schools include Solana Santa Fe Elementary, R. Roger Rowe, The Nativity School and Horizon Prep.
