Smoke-Free Outdoor Dining


Smoke-free Outdoor Dining is Good for Business and Good for Health!

More than 150 cities and counties across California have passed ordinances for smoke-free outdoor dining, including Chula Vista, El Cajon, National City, Del Mar, Encinitas, Coronado, Solana Beach, Carlsbad and Oceanside in San Diego County.

Vista Community Clinic’s Tobacco Control Program is working to extend those protections to our North County communities.

If you live in Escondido, San Marcos or Vista and are interested in helping to create smoke-free outdoor dining in your community, please contact us at contact Tamara Robinson at or 760-631-5000 Ext 7103


Other Smoke-free Outdoor Areas

Many other outdoor areas can be smoke-free, such as parks, sidewalks, golf courses, colleges, hospitals, healthcare campuses, public attractions, and worksites. These smoke-free policies provide protection to the general public, visitors, and workers.

All parks and beaches in San Diego County are 100% smoke-free. There are several other smoke-free places in North San Diego County like the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Vista Wave Waterpark, Palomar College, Mira Costa College, California State University San Marcos, Tri-City Medical Center, Vista Community Clinic, and Palomar Hospital.
