Why We Love Carmel Valley
Carmel Valley is a beautiful planned city located in the northwest corner of San Diego. Located south of Los Angeles, the region has a warm and dry climate year-round. This outdoorsy area is filled with scenery and wildlife. It contains the Carmel Mountain Preserve, Dragon’s Backbone Trailhead, and the Del Mar Mesa Preserve. Residents often hike the Los Penasquitos Trail Head to the Penasquitos Creek Waterfall. The area is known for its canyons as well, including Sage Canyon Park, Crest Canyon Park, and Lopez Canyon Trail. Just a short drive away is the Torrey Pines State Reserve, which features oceanside trails. Visitors often report seeing dolphins or even bobcats!
Carmel Valley is a huge tourist spot because of its prime location, equidistant between the coastline and inland forests. In addition to outdoor parks, there’s Balboa Park. It’s a multi-attraction park with 1,200 acres containing the San Diego Zoo, gardens, and museums. There’s also the Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, giving visitors the chance to get hands-on and up-close with marine life. Carmel Valley boasts a number of museums, including the Qualcomm Museum, the Victor House, and the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. For those looking to appreciate art, Carmel Valley has the Stuart Collection, a sculpture museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. And of course, there’s the San Diego Natural History Museum, where guests can appreciate animals, dinosaurs, and more. Fresh Brothers loves that Carmel Valley has such a rich culture and appreciation for the outdoors, and that’s why we’re so proud to serve this area.
