Olivenhain is largely a quiet, inland estate community, in fact there are community ordinances against too much light and noise at night, keeping the rural ambience of this highly desirable living area intact. However, a great night scene is nearby for both young adults and visitors in the coastal communities. There are great neighborhood bars offering a unique Southern California atmosphere. Live music of all kinds is to be found at the nearby in Encinitas and at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, a popular place for an evening out, and the great food along Restaurant Row on Highway 101 provides for a fantastic evening of food and fun. Located in North County, Olivenhain is within a short drive of great dancing, movies, restaurants, and sporting events that make San Diego such an attractive place to venture out for nighttime fun.
