Spending the Holidays in Rancho Santa Fe

When it comes to the holidays, there’s no place like home. If you’re fortunate to own a luxury home in Rancho Santa Fe, then you know it is a lovely place to spend the holiday season. With our amazing climate, variety of outdoor adventures, excellent shopping experiences, and world-class dining options, you have everything you need to celebrate in style right here at home. Here’s a taste of what we love to do during the holidays in and around Rancho Santa Fe.

Shop local

If you haven’t finished your holiday shopping, then don’t fret. You’ll find a huge array of places to shop locally so you can check everyone off your list. One of our favorite places to spend an afternoon is the Village of Rancho Santa Fe. Here you’ll find a charming selection of unique retailers such as Country Squire Gifts and John Matty Company Jewelers. There are many other options for holiday shopping in the area as well. Some of our favorites are Carlsbad Premium Outlets, the Del Rayo Village Shopping Center, and the historic Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego.

Dine in style

If dining out is part of your holiday celebration, then you’ll be pleased with all the options available to you right here in town. Hit up Nick & G’s Restaurant for the best Italian-American fare or Mille Fleurs if you’re more in the mood for an elegant French meal. Morada Restaurant is another great choice with a refined American menu, while Thyme in the Ranch is a charming cafe with outdoor seating so you can enjoy those warm late fall breezes.

Enjoy family time

The holidays are all about spending time with family and loved ones. If you’ve got kids in tow, then you’ll want to schedule some fun outings for them over their school vacation. The Helen Woodward Animal Center is a great place for family fun over the holidays. Experience hands-on animal encounters, craft-making, and time with Santa at Wild Winter 2022. Or head to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park for Wild Holidays. Explore places decked out with holiday cheer, listen to holiday tunes throughout the park, and snack on seasonal food treats.

Relax in the great outdoors

Finally, after a busy year, it’s always wise to spend a little time relaxing and unwinding during the holidays. Fortunately, here in Southern California, there’s no end to the opportunities for relaxing in the great outdoors. Spend an afternoon soaking up the sun and playing in the waves on one of the area’s beautiful beaches. Schedule a tee time at one of our award-winning local golf courses or go horseback riding at one of Rancho Santa Fe’s acclaimed equestrian facilities. You can also work off that turkey dinner at one of the many hiking trails in the area.
