Overview of Ramona

Ramona is a census designated place located in the southern tip of the state of California, less than 40 miles northeast of the bustling city of San Diego. Ramona apartments for rent are excellent ways to join the population of nearly 20,300 residents across the 15.3 square miles of land.

Ramona is known as the Gateway to San Diego North County's Inland Mountains and has earned itself the nickname of "The Valley of the Sun."

This family-friendly community has more than one-fourth of its population under the age of 18. Fans of equestrian sports will be happy to know that Ramona is a horse-friendly community as well, allowing for easy ridership as other surrounding areas restrict their rules and regulations.
