Escondido reflects its Spanish and Mexican roots (it’s the oldest city in San Diego County) through historical architecture with short stucco buildings painted in pastel colors. The city's culture represents the epitome of Southern California valley life, with outdoor activities that take advantage of the warm weather and wide streets. Galleries, shops, and restaurants fill every Friday for "Crusin on Grand," an event that brings in classic cars and hot rods along Grand Street. The weekly event also brings DJ booths, live bands, and hula hoop contests for kids. The temperate climate makes for a wide variety of plant life in the parks, from desert flowers to thick foliage. Take a look at our United States travel planner to refine the details of your trip to Escondido.
