Escondido may mean “hidden” but it’s no secret there’s a lot going on here! Located just 30 miles northeast of downtown San Diego and 20 minutes from the coast, Escondido is home to major attractions, beautiful wineries, craft breweries, unique arts and theatre, delicious culinary experiences and a charming historic downtown. Enjoy our beautiful climate with year-round golfing, hiking, biking, fishing, and fantastic events!

Escondido is the heart of northern San Diego… rich in history and culture. The list of “must do’s” includes the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, a unique performing arts complex, museum, and conference center; the San Diego Zoo Safari Park; Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens; the amazing sculpture garden, Queen Califia’s Magical Circle, created by the late world-acclaimed artist Niki de Saint Phalle; Cruisin’ Grand Escondido, one of the greatest ongoing traditions in San Diego County; the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum; and Daley Ranch, a wilderness preserve with extensive hiking, biking and equestrian trails.
