Solana Beach is a charming coastal San Diego community...a beach town feel yet contrasted with upscale dining, art, design and sophistication, sometimes in surprising places.

In this San Diego real estate series we are exploring the options for buyers who are looking for homes for sale within walking distance of amenities. While walking distance is rather personal, in general we are considering Solana Beach real estate that is within about a 15 minute walk, and to bolster my own perspective on walking distance we are using Walkscore to calculate walkability. You will find the earlier articles in this series below. Solana Beach is a charming seaside town about 20 miles north of downtown San Diego, sandwiched between affluent Del Mar and south of Cardiff-by-the Sea.

The outdoor fairs and festivals are now in abundance here in North County San Diego, and what better way to enjoy the terrific weather and all the cultural activities we have in our coastal beach communities (the Annual Carlsbad Village Street Fair was May 4; the Encinitas Street Fair was the previous weekend). Coming in June, the Fletcher Cove area in beautiful Solana Beach will be the setting the for 2008 Fiesta del Sol Festival, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, the City of Solana Beach, and the famous Belly Up. The Belly Up, well known for the live music for 31 years at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach’s Cedros District, will oversee the musical talents for the Fiesta del Sol Festival, so we are assured the musical performances featuring some fun bands will be outstanding.Vi...

Here's a new aerial that I took of Fletcher Cover Park in Solana Beach.  This is a really nice park with awesome ocean views and path to the beach!I took this picture using our pole camera rig.  The one item that I thought became really obvious was the infinity symbol shape of the rubber tot lot mat.  From the ground, you could see that it had a shape, but it wasn't so obvious at all.  With the aerial shot, it really sticks out.  It was a great January day!Margaret Hokkanen, Solana Beach Real Estate

Attention Ocean View Condo Buyers -- just wanted to let you know I've seen a few good values on Solana Beach under $500k. This was unheard of 18 months ago.
