As part of the San Diego backcountry, the community takes pride in its history and in its unique place as a separate area from the city of San Diego. Originally part of a Mexican land grant, the area was developed by ranchers and farmers in the late nineteenth century and is today still a community that loves equestrian events and lifestyle, including shows and riding trials available to all local residents and visitors.
Other events in Ramona include the annual Ramona Rodeo in May, The Air Fair & Air Attack Base Open House in June (Ramona is the base for all air firefighting activity in the backcountry) and the Country Fair days in August.
Historic Old Town Ramona from Third Street to Tenth Street is where you will find Ramona's oldest commercial building. Built in 1883, it is still in operation. There is also an antique shop district as well as the Mainstage Theater which reopened in September 2003. The Guy B. Woodward Museum is a great western history museum open to the public. There you can discover Ramona’s past from being named after a novel by Helen Hunt Jackson to Ramona’s days as the Turkey Capital of the World! Another activity is wine tasting at the Schwaesdall Winery, a family operated winery producing estate bottled, classic European-style red wines and traditional California white wines.
Ramona’s residents put great emphasis on children’s activities and education. There are five elementary schools, one middle school, two high schools, and four private schools within the district. Other activities for kids include Pony League Baseball, Girls Softball, Pop Warner Football, Ramona Soccer League, U.S. Pony Club, 4-H Club, Dance Studios, and the Boys and Girls Club.
