North County Inland

Wide Open Wonderful

Photo By Luis Garcia

Get outside and play

A beautiful area of rolling hills and winding roads, San Diego's North County Inland is an exceptional place to spend time outdoors. 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. And no trip to San Diego would be complete without a visit 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.

North County's inland region provides easy access to the best of Southern California with plenty of luxury resorts and family friendly hotels. Halfway between downtown San Diego and Anaheim, North County is an easy freeway drive to the Magic Kingdom at Disneyland, the gorgeous beaches of North County Coastal, the museums of Balboa Park, and Downtown San Diego, where the nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter awaits. 

Dining is a treat in North County 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.

Getting to North Inland

Most of North County Inland is accessible from the I-15. If you're heading inland from the beach in North County, take the Ted Williams Parkway (Route 56 east) and merge north on I-15. Hotels along the North Inland corridor can be reached by exiting on Carmel Mountain Road and Rancho Bernardo Road. Stay on the I-15 north to Escondido and smaller towns including Fallbrook and Vista too. The Sprinter light rail runs from coastal Oceanside to inland Escondido. Bus Routes 20, 30, 50 and Rapid 235 are express routes that run from Downtown San Diego to Escondido.
