Bonsall Information and Highlights

Here's a quick rundown of our list:

Bonsall Information and Highlights

Bonsall is a small area that resides in the North County Coastal area. With a population of a little less than four thousand people, Bonsall is a small piece of Californian heaven when it comes to the San Diego area. It focuses just as heavily on the beach culture aspect of things while mixing in some of the California country and nature that it is well known for. What would become Bonsall was originally titled Mount Fairview, and had a post office by the same name from December 28, 1871 to December 28, 1880. It received another post office in 1881 under the name Osgood, after the then California Southern Railroad chief engineer named Joseph O. Osgood. Following a contest in 1890, the town was renamed Bonsall after a local minister named James A. Bonsall. Through all of its history, Bonsall has become a lovely little suburb with plenty to offer.


Bonsall experiences the typical Californian weather, as well as the swells, heat and light breezes off of the Pacific coast. Temperatures stay fairly consist throughout the year with higher heats, precipitation and humidity involved, especially in the summer months. Residents and visitors alike can expect occasional rainstorms, thunderstorms and high wind velocities associated with storms off the Pacific coast, especially during hurricane season.
