Carmel Valley is an affluent car-dependent suburban planned community in the north-western corner of San Diego. The community is composed of commercial offices, residential units, hotels, and retail stores and restaurants.  Carmel Valley has many businesses and corporate headquarters. It has a decent amount of bars and restaurants, but there is not a “main drag” where most of the bars and restaurants are grouped together.

Carmel Valley is one of the newer neighborhoods of the City of San Diego, California. The community was formed by the City of San Diego on February 1, 1975. The construction later began in 1983.  The name Carmel Valley comes from the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy, who established a dairy farm and monastery in the area circa 1905.  Although the area was known locally as Carmel Valley, in 1974 the area was given the institutional name North City West in the master plan. The name Carmel Valley was readopted in the early 1990s.

Carmel Valley is a master-planned community, and it is one of the newest communities in the city. The community has many community-oriented events such as festivals and the Carmel Valley 5K. The Del Mar Fairgrounds is close to Carmel Valley, which is the home of the San Diego County Fair, horse races, concerts, the Del Mar Scaregrounds, and other events throughout the year.

Carmel Valley is fairly central in San Diego and is close to the 5 and 56 freeways, so it is easy to get around town.

Carmel Valley is known for its top-notch schools and family friendly community
