Moving to Rancho Peñasquitos

Are you looking at living in Rancho Peñasquitos? Located in the central west part of San Diego County, this beautiful California city is only about 20 minutes away from the nearest beach. As with many California settlements, the area has a rich Native American history.

Known as the first rancho in the county, it was previously called Rancho Santa Maria de Los Peñasquitos and covered just over 4,200 acres. From the 1820s to the mid-1900s the area was little more than a way station and mail line between San Antonio and San Diego. In 1962, it was purchased as part of a 14,000-acre real estate development project with the intent to up to 150,000 residents.

With a current population of about 63,000 locals, the area still has plenty of room to grow. And if you’re thinking about filling one of those slots by moving to Rancho Peñasquitos, we would love to help with your transition. As a top-rated moving company, Move Central has been around for more than 10 years, assisting with over 21,000 moves during that time.

The word Peñasquitos translates to “little cliffs” from Spanish, fitting the setting well as the city rests along a small canyon. Known as Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve the area offers many fun things to do including picnic sites as well as hiking, biking, and horse trails. On the other side of town, you’ll also find Hilltop Community Park and Black Mountain Open Space Park.

Although it is more like a large neighborhood, Rancho Peñasquitos is often recognized among the top 10% of the safest cities in California, thanks to its low crime rate. It is a great place for young families, especially with the Poway Unified School District, which has multiple schools ranked among the top in the nation.

Though the area is mainly residential, many locals have fairly simple commutes to jobs in surrounding cities. Some of the top employers nearby include Sony Electronics, General Atomics, Millenium Health, as well as a handful of video gaming giants like PlayStation and Rockstar Games.

And for anyone wondering about the area’s weather, Rancho Peñasquitos joins the ranks of San Diego suburbs with one of the best climates in the world. Comfortable temperatures last all year long, with little more than a light jacket needed during winter. Beyond that, shorts, t-shirts, and tank tops are common attire around town.

    5 star ratingVery professional service! Kelly and Anthony arrived on time and worked their ways through two large rooms very quickly.  They asked the right types of questions regarding boxing like items together and got the job done.  Very friendly also I must add!
