Nestled in a long valley in the coastal mountains of Southern California, Escondido provides a thriving urban environment in the midst of gentle rolling hills and avocado and citrus groves. Escondido lies about 18 miles inland, 100 miles south of Los Angeles, and 30 miles northeast of San Diego. In recent years, Escondido was named by Money Magazine as the Best Place in the West to Retire, and, at the other end of the spectrum, was named a Kid-Friendly City for its broad range of youth programs.
