Default Is there a rural part of San Diego?

Is it possible to go east of San Diego to a point to where it gets rural and still have the good weather? I am thinking maybe get a house on an acre without paying a million dollars and the developers are not there yet. Or do I have it confused with how it still is up north of Seattle Washington?

Yes you can go east and live in a rural area with a house on an acre of land. The weather will not be as good as it is in the temperate zone along the coast. The summers will be hotter, the winters colder, and the Santa Ana winds stronger. However, the climate won't be like El Centro, which is an earthly manifestation of the fires of Hades itself.

Places to look into would be Julian, Ramona, Dehesa Valley, etc.

Kettle pot is "right no the money" here...There's also Lakeside, Harbison Canyon, Crest region (on the mountain just to the East, above El Cajon), and in little places out past Alpine.

You can go further out (toward Pine Valley) but then it's WAAAAAY out in the boonies (although Pine Valley does get snow occasionally, and lots of "wind" days off from school!!!)

If you think of terms "to the south" that are rural, there's places like Barrett Junction (below Jamul), and little comunities just North of Tecate Maxico...there's LOTS of rural places there... but it's a ways to civilization.... EXPECT a looooooong drive if your job is near San Diego....

I think what you are looking for is Arizona. Ramona or Fallbrook are about as rural as i can imagine in the San Diego area. Both are still expensive. The time to buy a nice piece of property in CA. was 30 yrs. ago. Developers have pretty much found it all.

You can also try parts of Fallbrook, Eastern Escondido or even Valley Center. Fallbrook would be the coolest, though, with some ocean breezes.

I'm very interested in moving to Fallbrook - somewhat away from everything I guess. I don't mind having to travel for shopping - out of curiosity, would Escondido or Temecula be the most convenient mall ? And I am worried about medical .... I'm diabetic and have recently had a heart attack. I can see there are physicians, and there is a hospital - any idea how I can rate the medical available there? Thank you,

I have relatives who live in Fallbrook. They mostly shop in Temecula, but occasionally come down to North County Fair (or whatever it's called now) in Escondido. There is a hospital in either Temecula or Murrieta, I believe. I've never been there, so I don't know the quality of care. Also there are hospitals in Escondido (Palomar) and Vista (Tri-City).
