Carmel Valley is a wealthy coastal community in the north-western corner of San Diego. Carmel Valley is located a few miles outside of the fast paced area of down town San Diego which makes it a perfect location for growing families. This quiet town has many out door activities such as hiking or visiting the communities many parks. Carmel Valley is a short distance from the beaches and is located near the Torrey Pines State Preserve.
The community is one of the newer neighborhoods of the City of San Diego, California. Carmel Valley was formed by the City of San Diego on February 1, 1975, but construction did not start until 1983. The name Carmel Valley comes from the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy, who established a dairy farm and monastery in the area circa 1905. Although the area was known locally as Carmel Valley, in 1974 the area was given the institutional name North City West in the master plan. The name Carmel Valley was readopted in the early 1990s.
The area, positioned roughly half-way up the San Diego County coastline, is convenient to almost everything. Located adjacent to the beaches at Del Mar and Torrey Pines (and Torrey Pines Reserve), with UCSD and its surrounding biotech and communications industries only minutes away. To the immediate south lie Sorrento Valley and La Jolla's Golden Triangle, which are large employment centers complete with a shopping mall and many fine restaurants. A quick twenty minute drive south brings you to the airport, downtown San Diego, Balboa Park, the Zoo, Mission Bay, Sea World and more. To the north are developing centers around La Costa and Palomar Airport, as well as the Flower Fields and Legoland. In the next few years, the completion of SR-56 will connect the community with the eastern suburbs of San Diego—Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Escondido and more. This area provides access to more jobs, more shopping, and cultural spots such as the California Center for Performing Arts and the Wild Animal Park.
Carmel Valley has an overlay of various school districts. For the elementary schools, the northern section is part of the Solana Beach School District (K-6). The southern section is managed by the Del Mar Union School District (K-6). Overlaying the entire community, the San Dieguito Union High School District manages the middle schools and high schools.
