Make San Diego Home

CSUSM Campus

There’s more to the climate in San Marcos than the near-perfect weather, scenic environment and proximity to all the best Southern California has to offer. There is a climate of innovation and entrepre- neurship. Known as the craft beer capital of the U.S. (did we mention we launched an EngiBeeringTM program?), a hotbed for biotech and aerospace, and fueled by tourism (which brings a whole new meaning to staycations), San Diego County is an es- pecially attractive area for dual-career families.

Is an urban city lifestyle your thing? We have you covered. Like a laid-back coastal vibe? Prefer rolling hills and ranches? We have that, too. Want the perfect mix of everything? Welcome to San Diego County. Add vibrant culture, top-rated K-12 public schools, a foodie’s paradise, world- class attractions, and you are home.

With an average temperature of 72 degrees, San Marcos is a year-round outdoor playground. It’s a short 15-minute drive to the beach and less than two hours to snow-capped mountains in the winter.
