Poway and its surrounding neighborhoods are mostly comprised of families. It’s one of the safest areas in San Diego county and is a 30-minute drive from the bustling city areas and the beaches. Poway is a popular city for families because it has one of the best school districts out of all the surrounding counties. It was ranked #14 out of 481 in the state of California. There are plenty of schools to choose from, whether you’re looking for elementary, intermediate, or high schools.

There’s a strong sense of community here, too. There are always events going on, especially around the holidays. There are usually events geared toward children and teens as well. In January, they have a 2-day Winter Festival with an ice rink, games, and more. Check out the library for more fun events and crafting classes. They even have a digital bookmobile dedicated to helping people set up and download books on their devices!
