Experience the Old West in Poway, California

I live in Poway, California, and love it. Poway offers beautiful scenery as well as natural and many fun things to do. One of Poway's biggest attractions is the Old Poway Park. Here, you can see what life was life a century ago in Poway by touring a restored farmhouse, watching blacksmiths and other artisans doing their work with wood, glass, soap, textiles, painting and more. You can ride a vintage train and shop in old fashioned stores.

If you want to visit the Old Poway Park, be sure to inquire beforehand about the calendar. The site is open most Saturdays, but not always. A popular thing to do in Poway is hike up Iron Mountain. It is a moderate five mile hike, but the views at the top are worth it. The trails along the way are dotted with pretty wildflowers, but you should beware of rattlesnakes. Once at the top, you can indulge in the stunning views of the ocean and mountains. There are picnic tables and benches at the top where you can picnic or just relax in the beauty of the place. If you are hiking in the summer, make sure you bring water because it does get hot and dry here at this time of year. At the Sycamore Canyon Preserve and Goodan Ranch, you can enjoy more than ten miles of biking, hiking and horseback riding. Poway also features a nine acre public park, named Aubrey Park, where you can enjoy activities like softball, walking and picnicking. Additionally, the city offers a swimming pool and skate park.
