SAN MARCOS

Taking the Open House San Diego 2021 spotlight is North County trendsetter San Marcos. Touted for its accessible public transit and family-oriented communities, the city also offers historical homes and hiking trails with impressive panoramic views, like the ones at Double Peak Park.

During Open House San Diego 2021, San Marcos residents and visitors can partake in self-guided tours of the beautiful campuses and stunning architecture at Palomar College and Cal State San Marcos. A college tour without the crowds!

The San Marcos neighborhood North City is having its moment, so you’ll want to check it out with a self-guided tour. The explosion of development taking place there is transforming this sleepy slice of surburbia into an urban destination. The North City awakening features new eateries and taprooms, artisanal coffee at Copa Vida, and gems like Tuesday’s open-air farmers market. So head to North City during OH! San Diego for a closer look.
