A shitty suburban part of the northern SD county. Built in 1974 (?), they have their own shit newspaper, some parks, a decent library, and a couple strip malls (the most popular being the 'Highlands', as the locals call it). The town is an even 10-20 or so miles across.

For the most part, rich whites/asians live on the upper half of CV and poorer middle class people live on the lower half of CV. No black people whatsoever, a decent amount of Mexicans though.

The people who live in CV tend to go to the 'Highlands' and buy useless crap and/or shoot the shit. Sometimes they walk dogs around the parks. Sometimes they just stay in their houses and get locked into the daily grind, resulting in chronic depression.

Politics in CV consists of white people running for the council and debating about the new strip mall that might be built next to the current strip mall. The people opposing the new development go on hour long rants about the extra 30 seconds of traffic they'll have to endure if it's built. The people supporting it just want another place to sit around and jerk off at.

Schools in Carmel Valley are well funded and enough rich white kids / asian kids go to them, making the schools in the area consistently rank high on national ratings.

Carmel Valley is like any other suburban California town. Not too interesting, but probably has a higher than usual suicide rate.
Carmel Valley is a great place to live if you just don't give a shit anymore and want a place to raise your asshole teenagers.

A perfect example of sprawling San Diego, Carmel Valley is a community located in North County San Diego just inland from the city of Del Mar. It consist mostly of happily married young couples, expensive German cars, condos, and shopping centers. Not known for having extensive public transport or any sense or a real community center.
After driving on three streets with the word "Carmel" in them and getting stuck behind a BMW SUV, I realized that I was definitely in Carmel Valley.

Carmel Valley is probably the worst part of North County San Diego. The houses are all the same, and the people are all the same. They all try to fit into a certain group, emo, scene, and the like. There is no individuality. Everyone spends their weekend at the highlands, the only decent feature of Carmel Valley, talking about their money(real or not) and shallow friendships.
Del Martian: Hey, you want to go to Carmel valley tonight?

Solana Beacher: Screw that.
