Developed in the early 1960’s as a planned community, Rancho Bernardo is often termed a 52-week vacationland. Visitors are in awe when they first feast their eyes upon the lush valley nestled between rock-studded hills. Rancho Bernardo is known for its many fine accommodations, dining possibilities, shopping boutiques, golf courses, one of the best school districts in the state, and the Bernardo Winery, one of the oldest continuously operating wineries in Southern California.
“Rancho Bernardo, Escondido and San Diego North overall are honored to participate in an event of this magnitude and to have been chosen to host the final stage of the 2009 Amgen Tour of California. Rancho Bernardo and Escondido will provide the perfect backdrop for the final day of racing and through the national and international exposure the race brings, we look forward to sharing that with race fans everywhere.”
—Cami Mattson, President/CEO of San Diego North CVB
