Hidden Treasure

Escondido reflects its Spanish and Mexican roots (it’s the oldest city in San Diego County) through historical architecture with short stucco buildings painted in pastel colors.
Bring the kids along to LEGOLAND California and Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage & Meditation Gardens. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Escondido: South Carlsbad State Beach (in Carlsbad), La Jolla Zip Zoom (in Pauma Valley) and Moonlight State Beach (in Encinitas). And it doesn't end there: get to know the resident critters at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, stop by Carlsbad Village, admire nature's wide array of creatures at California Wolf Center, and take in the waterfront at Oceanside Pier.

To see maps, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Escondido road trip planner.

Live Music Capital of the World

Despite its laid-back college vibe, Austin is an influential center for politics, technology, film, and music.
Family-friendly places like SeaWorld and Texas State Capitol will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Austin: Lake Travis Zipline Adventures (in Volente), Landa Falls (in New Braunfels) and San Antonio (Friedrich Wilderness Park, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, &more). The adventure continues: take in the views from Congress Avenue Bridge / Austin Bats, hike along Lady Bird Lake Hike-and-Bike Trail, get engrossed in the history at LBJ Presidential Library, and admire the natural beauty at Zilker Metropolitan Park.
