Rancho Bernardo sets the standard for master-planned communities in San Diego. Although within the City of San Diego, the ambiance, culture, and feel of the community distinguish Rancho Bernardo from other parts of the county.
Nestled in a valley, Rancho Bernardo’s 7,000 acres house more than 45,000 residents in North County San Diego. Spanning the east and west sides of the I-15 freeway, the community is included in the 92127 and 92128 zip codes.
A town plaza contains small businesses including financial services, insurance companies, law firms, computer services, real estate, mortgage and escrow companies, high-tech and entrepreneurial-type businesses. Industry giants such as Sony Electronics, Hewlett-Packard, Northrop Grumman, BAE Systems, NCR Corporation, SAIC, and Eastman Kodak Co. operate in one of the largest business parks in San Diego.
Rancho Bernardo residents and visitors can choose from a selection of golf courses located in the community. Oaks North Golf Course is a favorite executive course in the area. The Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Course and Country Club of Rancho Bernardo offer championship courses. The Bernardo Winery is an inviting place to taste wines, dine, or visit village shops.
Hiking and fishing opportunities are just moments away at both Lake Hodges and Lake Poway. Just north of Rancho Bernardo is the world-famous San Diego Zoo Safari Park, where patrons of all ages can enjoy animals in natural settings.
