In Rancho Santa Fe, Connie and Bill McNally are regarded international antique dealers. Like most businesses, though, the antique dealing world has also changed with the Digital Age. Responding to those changes, The McNally Company located in the heart of the Village, has added on a new enterprise named McNally’s RSF Estate Auctions, Inc.

Activities available in the area include golf, tennis, horseback riding, sailing, entertaining or just lolling in the wonderful California sunshine.
Residents of this area often refer to their community as "The Ranch." Rancho Santa Fe is a rather exclusive area. It is one of the ten wealthiest communities in the entire USA. Despite this wealth, the area has a low profile and privacy is a prized feature. The main street is Paseo Delicias. Here there are restaurants and small shops. The center of attraction for the village is architect Lillian Rice’s creation the "Inn at Rancho Santa Fe." Horse trails abound in the hilly areas. Maintaining the low-key atmosphere here is helped by no sidewlaks, street lights or street addresses throughout Rancho Santa Fe.
Two local women, Del Mar resident Arline “A.J.” Genis and Rancho Santa Fe community member, Celeste Hudson, are hosting an upcoming banquet, “Touching Hearts Across Nations.” The June 27 event is expected to draw 700 guests at the Morgan Run Club & Resort.

During the month of November, Camp Pendleton has a host of elegant Marine Corps Balls for their active service personnel and veterans. But for some, attending these black tie venues may not become a reality if they don’t have the funds to purchase formal eveningwear.
