Escondido, CA - Hidden Natural Beauty

Ever since the first time I visited California, I had a good impression and after visiting the wonderful city of Escondido I can still say the same! Escondido is a beautiful city which blends modern design with the elegant natural surroundings to create an overall pleasant experience. I like nature just as much as the next guy but when I visited Escondido I was taken by the wonderful natural surroundings. Escondido is situated about 18 miles from the waterfront and lies in a valley of beautiful avocado and citrus groves. Naturally my favorite part of my stay was a tour through a gorgeous Citrus grove located just off the side of a mountain valley in Escondido. It was stunning to see nature at its best and Escondido is a brilliant example of a city that embraces its surroundings rather than change them! The community is gorgeous and the city area is lined with beautiful natural modern design, I was particularly impressed by the use of fountains throughout the cityscape. There is an incredible amount of restaurants in Escondido ranging from authentic French cuisine through classic American style; don't forget the seafood too!
