About Rancho Santa Fe

Rancho Santa Fe is home to several neighborhoods, each with its unique atmosphere and charm. The Covenant is the community's oldest and best-known neighborhood. It is here you'll find most of the local shopping and dining. Formed in 1928, the Covenant features large, luxurious homes on oversized lots.

Although Rancho Santa Fe is mainly residential, there's a good selection of shopping and dining in the neighborhood's commercial center. Here, you'll find some of Rancho Santa Fe's most beloved local eateries, as well as an art gallery, library, post office, banks, and a pharmacy. This vibrant commercial zone, located in the Covenant, is the community's social hub, and locals gather here for coffee, lunch, or a relaxed dinner with friends.

For more high-end dining, residents of Rancho Santa Fe are fortunate enough to have some truly superb options. The world-class Rancho Valencia Resort sits in the heart of the community, and it’s here that visitors and locals alike come to sample elegant California cuisine at the resort’s elegant restaurant. Elsewhere, the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe offers inspired, chef-driven cuisine at its upscale signature restaurant.

The weather in Rancho Santa Fe really couldn't be better - that is, as long as you enjoy warm, sunny days throughout the year. Although summers can get quite hot, the Pacific Ocean's proximity means that moderating breezes keep things from becoming stifling. With almost 300 sunny days each year, it's no wonder folks around here enjoy spending much of their time outdoors.

Golf is among the most popular activities in this community, and the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club has one of the best courses in the region. The 18-hole, 7073-yard course was designed by Max Behr in 1927. It's since had an extensive remodel but still feels steeped in history.

Other popular outdoor activities include tennis and horseback riding. There's a prominent equestrian culture here, with Rancho Riding Club acting as the horse community hub. There are miles of picturesque trails to ride, and the club also offers stabling, lessons, and community shows and events.

The community center offers classes and events, catering its services to residents of all ages. The Art Guild runs a local gallery and works tirelessly to promote the local art scene.
