For decades, La Jolla has been noted as the Jewel of the Pacific, Rancho Santa Fe has been recognized as the second wealthiest community in North America, Del Mar, with its colorful history and prestigious location on the shoreline adds luster to the sheen as do the communities of Solana Beach, Encinitas, and Carlsbad.


Our Magazines are direct-mailed to every business and residence in Rancho Santa Fe along with business and premier residences in La Jolla, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Carlsbad, accounting for over 75% of our publication. Coupled with our Social and Digital Media, our publications reach directly into the homes of this Informed, educated, upscale clientele making us a source of marketing that is difficult to surpass.


The resulting exposure our clients receive from this upscale demographic is simply enormous. With a focus on exceptional literary content, and a readership in excess of 100,000, our publication has rapidly become a prominent feature of North County life.

Our Team

  • Robert Kenyon
    Publisher & Editor

    Robert Kenyon began publishing in 1989 with the mailing of a luxury-styled custom travel brochure highlighting worldwide travel. Some five years ago in 2014, Robert began Discover Magazines, which now has four editions throughout San Diego County. Rancho Santa Fe / North County / La Jolla / America's Finest City® editions.

       

    His focus was on offering an excellence in literary content, while creating a window of opportunity for others seeking to gain marketplace exposure for their products or services in a luxury-styled magazine at uncommonly reasonable pricing. The corollary to that successful campaign has been to offer local non-profit charitable organizations a conduit to showcase their worthy efforts at making a difference to those in need within all of our treasured communities.

      

    The First Cabin Travel marketing campaign with both print and social media has worked extremely well and offers the same successful result for your product line or services.
