I highly recommend the walking excursion from Rancho Bernardo (starting from the Lake Hodge bridge) to the Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead. It takes around 45 minutes at a slow/normal pace and is not only a great workout on a sunny day, but also you will see how well connected is Rancho Bernardo with that initial portion of Escondido. I saw the Adobe house before and after remodeling and I have to say the job done is amazing. Besides, the volunteers and staff working there are very knowledgeable.

Such a great place to visit! The dia de Los muertos festival was amazing. The food the music the people made it feel super soaked in the culture. They had stations for your children to craft masks and sweets. Really great performances by volunteers. The complex is way bigger than it looks as it keeps going and going. I found myself wondering through the various building that are filled with amateur art work which is beautiful.

Came in on the way back from wine tasting in Julian ca. Just to check out the place and stretch my legs. There was a super cute dog named Baxter to came out to greet me and my mom right away as well as a nice girl with dark brown hair who worked there who was also really nice and smart. A large room with plenty of interesting displays that tell a story of the early settlers in the area and their way of life.
