Valley Center is a unique town. In San Diego county it's not too difficult to find metro areas or beach cities. In fact, I believe when most people think of San Diego county they automatically think of the beach. Makes sense, right? But what gets overlooked sometimes are the rural areas of the county... places such as Valley Center. Valley Center is a small community on the eastern outskirts of Escondido. The community has a quaint, small town feel, which is hard to come by these days. There are a wide variety of homes, many with several acres of land attached to them. It is not uncommon to see residents of the community walking or jogging the bike paths. or even riding their horses. Looking for a small town feel, then I suggest taking a look at what kind of properties are available in Valley Center.
