Local Attractions

Escondido is centrally located in southern California. Only 25 miles from San Diego, 15 miles from the Pacific coast, and 100 miles from Los Angeles, there are a wide variety of things to do in and around Escondido. Sunny and 70 degrees most of the year, Southern California is a beautiful place to learn, grow, play, and study.  While many days will be spent in the library, be sure to enjoy the local scenery!
