Ramona: A Beautiful City with Gorgeous Surroundings

Ramona is a small city as far as Southern California cities go, having a population just over 20,000. However, you would never know this when visiting because it is located in San Diego county which is a lively and well-populated county in the state. I love Ramona and find it to be a nice place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of San Diego when I visit family there. Living in Ramona would be a dream come true for myself!

Ramona is located just a short drive from the beach and you can get to the waves in about a half an hour. These beaches have views that make the perfect backdrop for weddings, picnics, photographs, romantic walks and so much more. Ramona also has an abundance of vineyards, golf courses and horse back riding stables. The best areas in Ramona tend to be those up in the beautiful hills.

My favorite thing to do when I’m in Ramona is to grab some pizza from one of the excellent pizzerias and eat it in one of the many green parks. Occasionally, I like to visit the Oasis Camel Dairy or take a hike on one of the gorgeous hiking trails that can be found throughout the area.
