In recent years, the population of San Marcos has exploded. City officials have successfully taken this once average city to new heights, first with the addition of California State University San Marcos in 1989, and later with forward-thinking development projects. In 2004, the community of San Elijo Hills was formed on the southern border near Questhaven Road and Elfin Forest. This lifestyle community changed the face of San Marcos forever. It has become a self-sufficient haven for families seeking the quintessential neighborhood experience. San Marcos schools are high scoring and offer cutting-edge STEM curriculum. As a resident, David can honestly say that it’s a great place to live.
