Explore North Inland
San Diego’s North Inland is an exceptional place to spend time outdoors with its rolling hills and winding roads. Hike or bike to the top of Palomar Mountain, or golf at over 40 courses carved out of the natural landscape. Spend an afternoon at one of the local wineries or on a craft beer tour at one of the many local breweries that enliven this area. Tourists and locals alike enjoy frequent visits to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, where you can venture to Africa and Asia without having to leave Southern California. For an off-the-beaten-path experience, head to the family friendly Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park where the entrance is free and the kids can get up close to dozens of brilliant peacocks.
Dining is a treat in North Inland too and options range from elegant to more casual experiences. As a region with strong agricultural roots, many of the chefs have also forged strong bonds with area farmers and infuse their cuisine with local, seasonal and farm fresh ingredients.
