Vacasa's growing list of Escondido vacation rentals offers a laid-back location for your next sunny California getaway.
Well, this quiet little inland community filled with groves of avocado and citrus trees, wineries, restaurants, and galleries, is just about 30 miles northeast of bustling, busy San Diego.
The name Escondido may mean "hidden valley", but the attractions and activities are not at all a secret! Visit the California Center for the Arts, the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park, the San Diego Children's Discovery Museum, or see a show at the Welk Theater. Escondido is home to four Farmers Markets on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays at different locations around town. On the days when you choose to prepare your own meals instead of going out, you'll have lots of options for finding local produce. The Daley Ranch has over 3,000-acres of biologically unique conservation area. There are over 20 miles of hiking and biking trails through woodlands, grasslands, and riparian habitat.
When you leave your Escondido retreat for the ranch, pack a lunch and enjoy time by the one of the small ponds. And even though you'll have a kitchen at your Escondido getaway, this town offers a plethora of dining choices, with everything from Pho to award-winning Mexican fare at the Cenote Grill. You could also easily spend a whole afternoon visiting area wineries like Bella Marie, Vesper Vineyards, and Bernardo. More of a beer fan? Stone Brewing Company is also located right in the town of Escondido,and offers tours and tastings as well.
When you're researching San Diego vacation rentals, don't forget a cute Escondido vacation cottage or elegant Escondido villa. Like La Jolla 30 miles southwest, Escondido offers a location that's near San Diego for day trips, but away from the hubbub and crowds.
