Explore Rancho Santa Margarita
At the foot of the Santa Ana Mountains, Rancho Santa Margarita is a beautiful community with superb weather, a central park and award-winning schools. This small city hosts a mixture of retail shops, restaurants, and year-round community events. The city also has the scenic Rancho Santa Margarita Lake, which is hugged by a pathway for walking or jogging. Carmelita’s Mexican restaurant overlooks the lake, with an alfresco dining area for panoramic lakeside sunsets.
While the Ted Robinson-designed Tijeras Creek Golf Club is a nationally recognized public course, Dove Canyon Golf Club and Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club have remarkable private courses, each distinguished in its own right. Rancho Santa Margarita is also in close proximity to over two dozen courses within Orange County.
This city is absolutely perfect for families. There are parks galore, Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas, a private beach club and a Cal Elite Kids Gymnastics Center. Every holiday is observed with activities at the town’s Central Park, which also plays host to a Summer Concert Series.
