Six miles from the Pacific coastline sits the San Elijo Hills community, a master-planned community of 3,400 homes. Since its inception, San Elijo Hills has drawn people to it with its focus on a ‘small-town’ feel; hosting concerts in the town square, an Oktoberfest celebration, nature hikes and movie nights, where projection screens show family movies in the park to hundreds.
San Elijo Hills was designed to give its residents the four essential elements of a strong, nurturing community: a vibrant town center, including a major grocery store, shops, eateries and convenient services; ample parks and trails; award-winning schools; and an ideal community lifestyle incorporating activities and traditional events that foster a close-knit, small-town environment.
