North County is the northern area of San Diego County, and consists of two regions with cities, communities, organizations and residents that work together to promote a healthy, safe and thriving region. The North Coastal Region has a population of nearly 475,000 and consists of six cities (Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Oceanside, Solana Beach and Vista) and over a dozen more communities that stretch geographically from Del Mar in the south to the Orange County border in the north and east to include Vista and Rancho Santa Fe. The US Marine Corps' largest installation, Camp Pendleton, is located in the North Coastal Region. The North Inland Region has a population of nearly 486,000 residents, living in four cities (Escondido, Poway, San Marcos and the northern part of the City of San Diego) and dozens of smaller communities. The region's diversity can be attributed to this vast geographic expanse, which includes suburban areas, remote desert communities, historic mountain towns, rural homes and farms, and Indian reservations.
