Situated between San Diego and Los Angeles, MiraCosta College benefits from multicultural influences and cultural opportunities. Interstate 5, Amtrak, and Carlsbad regional airport provide easy access to either metropolis and to Mexico. The district, which extends 25 miles along the Pacific Ocean from Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base to the city of San Diego, attracts diverse ethnic and socioeconomic populations who live in urban and suburban communities. The intellectual environment is enhanced by the college’s proximity to the University of California San Diego, California State University San Marcos, and other institutions of higher education. Along with numerous theaters, galleries, and museums, residents enjoy a moderate, year-round climate, which provides many opportunities for outdoor activities.

The San Diego Tourism Authority website describes San Diego's North County as a vast, expansive region known for its pristine beaches, natural preserves and miles of open spaces. From Del Mar to Oceanside, the North County coastline is a string of unique picturesque seaside villages that have a small-town feel.

If you're looking for opportunities for outdoor activities in San Diego, the north region has plenty. From hiking and horseback riding in Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking in Carlsbad Lagoon, to biking along historic Highway 101, or sport fishing, whale watching or surfing the coastline from La Jolla through Oceanside, outdoor enthusiasts are sure to be entertained. San Diego's north coastal town of Encinitas was recently named among the best surf towns in the world by National Geographic.

The North County Coastal region is home to some of San Diego's top attractions, including LEGOLAND California, Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland Water Park, the Flower Fields at Carlsbad, and the Del Mar Fairgrounds, host to the Del Mar Fair from mid-June to early July, followed by the Del Mar Thoroughbred Races until early September. There's also the San Diego Botanic Garden for a look at San Diego native flora and fauna, and at the Eastern border of North County, you'll also find the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Las Vegas-style Indian casino gaming and a handful of great wineries and local breweries. Art enthusiasts will love the Oceanside Museum of Art and the LUX Art Institute.

San Diego's North County coastal and inland regions are also a paradise for golfers, with over 40 diverse courses to choose from. Graced by cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean, the Arnold Palmer-designed Park Hyatt Aviara and Tom Fazio-designed Grand Del Mar golf courses are uniquely sculpted around the natural landscapes and native vegetation. San Diego's North region puts you just an hour from Disneyland yet still close to downtown San Diego where the museums of Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo, the Gaslamp Quarter and SeaWorld San Diego are nearby.

North San Diego County is home to eight of the county’s fastest growing cities, businesses and families are drawn to North County’s sunny inland valleys and scenic coastal communities. Additional information about the business environment can be found on the San Diego North Economic Development Council website or on the Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, or San Diego Coastal Chamber of Commerce websites.
