Like many Southern California towns, Solana Beach has agriculture to thank for its birth. Today, a small but thriving seaside city sits on fertile farmland that once boasted fields of lima beans and groves of avocados.
Although Coastal Living magazine dubbed Solana Beach a “Dream Town,” there are plenty of reasons that her nearly 13,000 residents chose to make the dream a reality.
If you hope to do the same, please allow us to help you get to know this gorgeous seaside community on the northern coast of San Diego County.
