Valley Center is a community in transition from a small rural town to a suburban “bedroom” community. Valleyites are used to eating fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grown, sometimes grown on their very own two-acre lots. The Valley’s famous microclimates are responsible for the community being home to an amazing mosaic of agriculture. The list of the notable residents includes musicians, athletes and Hollywood elite including the legendary John Wayne so it’s clear the lifestyles of the people in Valley Center are as varied as the crops. With the Valley View Casino & Hotel in town and The California Center for the Arts Escondido just 20 minutes away offering symphonies, ethnic music, jazz, country and rhythm and blues there is a wide variety of exciting entertainment available to this community.
