Mount-Palomar is a beautiful mountain region located in San Diego County. Just 35 miles from Oceanside off Highway 76, Mount Palomar stands isolated from the rest of the Agua Tibia Mountain Range. The climate in Mount Palomar is wet, making it perfect for growing grapes. Mount Palomar Winery produces 14,000 cases of wine annually on 50 acres of vineyards. The winery's landscape is a lovely mix of vineyards, olive trees and picnic areas. Visitors may enjoy wine tasting at the guest center and dine at the Mediterranean Deli. The Palomar Observatory is located at the 5,500 foot elevation, and the museum and telescope viewing gallery are open year round daily 9 - 4. For more outdoors recreation, Palomar Mountain State Park offers excellent hiking and biking trails, and has 31 campsites. Boucher Hill in the State Park offers views of most of San Diego County and the Coronado Islands. The Welk Resort Center on Palomar Mountain has over 1,000 acres of spectacular scenery; two golf courses, a dinner theater, pool, tennis courts and a shopping pavilion. For something private and low-key, yet near all the excitement and attractions of southern California, Mount Palomar may have just what you're looking for in a vacation resort destination.

Mount Palomar Weather & Climate

The lush valley region located between Los Angeles and San Diego enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate. Elevations range from 1,175 feet in the east to 2,600 feet in the west. The weather is comparable to the Napa Valley in the northern part of the state, with warm, dry days and cool evenings. Located near the Pacific Ocean, the warm summer temperatures are often cooled by afternoon ocean breezes blowing in to the valley through gaps in the Santa Ana foothills. Although separated from the Pacific by the Santa Rosa Mountain rag, the Rainbow Gap funnels the mild beach climate into the valley. Mild wintertime temperatures average in the mid-60's. Yearly average rainfall is approximately 14 inches, and the air quality is consistently better than that of surrounding communities.
