A booming place to live, Escondido is home to a relatively large number of residents and is 30 miles from San Diego. It has a plethora of sights to go and see and is as dynamic as any cosmopolitan neighborhood in San Diego.
One of the more famous features of Escondido is the California Center for the Arts. A performing arts center which has both a concert hall and theater, offering various programs all year long. Alongside the concert hall and theater, it also features a contemporary art museum and dance studios.
For people who like to revel in the history of where they live, Escondido features the aptly named, Old Escondido Historic District. Located downtown, this zone of Escondido has turn-of-the-century architecture on display. The area is also lined with art galleries, ships, rustic locally owned restaurants. Walking tours are also offered if you want to learn more about the rich Escondido history.
The area is also a dream for people who really love to shop; both the Old Escondido Historic District and the Grand Avenue are full of shops that cater to every want and need of its residents. There is also a selection of malls in the area for more traditional “big box” shopping.
To put it simply, Escondido offers everything that you may want. It is cheap, has access to shopping, is close enough to San Diego, and is very historic as well.
