Solana Beach Real Estate
The name Solana Beach means "sunny" in Spanish. The town enjoys a great seaside location in North county San Diego. Evidence shows that the earliest settlers of the area were Indians that lived there amongst the abundant wildlife, seafood and sunshine as early as 9000 BC.

The El Camino Real runs through the eastern side of the town; the route that the Spanish traveled on their way north to Monterey in 1769. In the year 1840, the area was part of the Rancho San Dieguito which was granted to Juan Maria Osuna.

In 1850 when the County of San Diego was established the population of the area which is now Solana Beach was listed as 790. The first American settler arrived in 1862. William A. Ewing built on 180 acres in the San Dieguito River valley.

After the Lake Hodges Dam was built between 1917 and 1918 water was more readily available to the area and development accelerated. The town was established in the 1920's when a well-known civic leader named Ed Fletcher purchased 20 acres of land for $400. Avocado farming was touted as the area industry.

Fletcher cove was created over a three month period by one man who used a fire hose and water from Lake Hodges Spillway. The hydraulic pressure of the water eroded tons of earth in order to give the town an ocean view! The great depression had a slowing effect on the development of the town, but by the 1950's the area was prospering once again.

In 1986 the city of Solana Beach incorporated. The town currently has approximately 14,000 residents, many of which are artisans, high tech and business professionals. Average property values continue to rise.

In 1995 the railroad station was relocated from Del Mar to Solana Beach. The railroad was lowered so as to not interfere with traffic flow on surface streets and a new station was constructed. The depot's modern design reflects the look of the building that line Cedros Avenue in the town's design district. The city is now served by both North County Transit Authority's Coaster Commuter trains as well as Amtrak. The station serves as a transportation hub for the neighboring north coastal communities. The Cedros Design District features artisans, galleries, decorator studios, and antique dealers.
