Perfect weather and tons to do! - 7/14/2018
Weather is perfect year round. There are tons of things to do with the lakes, parks, the world famous San Diego Zoo's Safari Park, performing arts center, numerous wineries, and close proximity to both beaches and mountains. Not to mention, Mexico is easily accessible and within a day's drive, you can be in Scottsdale, Santa Barbara, or San Francisco. Housing costs are definitely high but in accordance with the lifestyle you get. As they get what you pay Read More

not too bad - 1/10/2012
some areas are good, other areas are not. I just want to make a short comment aside from that. I don't know why some people refer to "hispanic" as a bad thing. I am hispanic and my wife and we are college grads with good salaries and professional. my wife was born in Huntington Beach and I was born in Costa Rica, her parents are Doctors and my dad is an attorney. I also have many friends that are hispanic and they all go to college, one of them is even a Judge. Yes, I have to accept that there are groups of certain hispanics that live in the chepear areas of a city, sometimes some of them tend to be illegal aliens from Mexico and many others have papers and are just blue-collar workers. we moved back to Irvine because of my job but I am also aware that Anaheim is one of the safest cities in America but it's full of that type of "blue-collar type of hispanics" as you can see they are dangerous or bad people at all. there is good and bad in every race. well the point is that Read More

I've Lived here and there a long time.... - 10/22/2010
Escondido is in the north east section of San Diego County - Many people consider Temecula to be part of this metro area. This area over all is very diverse - you could be 50-60 miles from the ocean and still have a sneak of a view.

Escondido itself has a great cultural arts center that really does it's best on it's limited income but it is an absolutely beautiful building. The arts here have tried and tried to make it. There are several galleries and it seems there just isn't enough "umph" to make it "artsy" like some other towns in San Diego.

Unemployment is high right now. Classified ads are dismal, rents are still a little high unless you rent in the center of the city which is mostly Hispanic. Crime isn't really a big issue here compared to other suburbs in america from my experience.

The weather is frustrating here. In the summer time when you want to be at the beach it's foggy and cold, believe me, I paid the outrageous rent to Read More

I LOVE ESCONDIO - 6/23/2009
I moved from New England to Escondido 10 years ago and I really love this town. It has a wonderful mid-century downtown with museums, theaters, restaurants, coffee shops and a wine bar, right next to neighborhoods with small bungalows and ranch-style houses. There are lakes, hiking trails and parks as well as a lots of places to shop. Less than 30 miles to San Diego and the beaches, it is sunny almost all year round, though it can get too hot for some late summer. For an ongoing discussion about what makes it a great town you can go to  Read More

Noise! Noise! Noise! - 12/31/2007
I was warned by people not to move here. After living the last five years in the north county coastal cities of San Diego(Solana Beach, Carlsbad, Oceanside) I got tired of all the coastal fog and wanted warmer day time temps(yes it is colder here at night than the coast in the winter, but I am asleep at night and it is warmer in the day time here). I went on to Craigslist and found a great small house with a big yard to rent for a bargain price of $900 a month (vs $1500 a month on the coast for a tiny one bedroom). Plenty of space for my small dog and my partner to live in comfort.

In the last six months we have endured loud music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night from various neighbors(sometime during the week too). Most of the music is mexican music which I am not fond of and give me the sense I am stuck in a mexican restaurant all the time. The other music is loud hip hop music which I like to listen myself as well. I just don't like to be forced to listen to it Read More
