San Diego North County, also North County, refers to a region in the northern portion of San Diego County, California.

Definitions vary, but always include the cities along Interstate 5 and Route 78 and north of Carmel Valley Road. (west to east: Oceanside and Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos, and Escondido) as well as points north (such as Fallbrook). Cities north of an imaginary line west from Escondido (such as Encinitas) are also included. But for both geographic and political reasons, opinions differ as to whether to include the northern communities within the city of San Diego (Rancho Bernardo, Scripps Ranch), or close in cities such as Solana Beach, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Aviara, Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Rancho Santa Fe, etc.

North County is considered more socially conservative than the southern portion of the county. The name dates to at least the 1970s, when many of the communities in the area were yet to become incorporated cities and local community decisions were made 40 miles away at the county seat. The North County section of San Diego county has historically been the most expensive region of San Diego, with such affluent neighborhoods as: Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Carlsbad, Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, Olivenhain, Rancho Santa Fe, and Solana Beach [1].

Most of North County is located within County Supervisorial District 5, and is represented on the county's Board of Supervisors by Bill Horn, who is also the Vice-Chairman of the Board. The remainder of North County is in Districts 2 and 3, represented by Dianne Jacob and Pam Slater, respectively.

The North County Times is the main newspaper in the region.
