Rancho Bernardo

“Rancho Bernardo is a great place to raise children. You have the Poway school system, one of the best in the state. That's what drove me here (in 1986). A Realtor showed us property. I saw a beautiful part of San Diego County and this is where I wanted to be. I'm living on sacred ground. I'm a New York guy, but I never felt at home until I landed in Rancho Bernardo.” -- Sam Bass, San Diego radio/TV personality, and a resident of Rancho Bernardo since 1986.
