Unique, hip, and vibrant, Vista is close to the coastal cities of Oceanside and Carlsbad, but is in a league of its own. Located just 7 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the City of Vista was recognized in the book, 50 Fabulous Places to Raise Your Family, for good reason. This well established North San Diego County town boasts a variety of neighborhoods and homes, with shopping, dining, professional services, recreation, lots of parks and advanced education close at hand. Recently the city has had several new developments and projects. The annual BestPlaces Comfort Index for Vista is 9.1 (10=best), which means it is one of the most pleasant places in California. If you are looking to relocate to North County this just might be the place for you.
