  • Escondido has a lot to offer from the Performing Arts Center to it's downtown restaurants and merchants to the summer events including cruising on Grand. I have been to this event twice, both times by accident - just happened to be downtown at the time. Both times were very enjoyable - the people who come here are wonderful, kind, open, happy to share and willing to strike up a conversation. The cars can vary from the labor of love to the truly special car. No snobs here, just good people and good fun!
  • It a great Friday night walk. One lap is a mile. A bonus is all the pre 75 cars and trucks.
  • A local tradition. Be aware that some weeks are better than others, so be sure to visit several times.
  • My favorite Summer Car Show! Always a good time and great little shops in downtown Escondido!
  • Greatest regular gathering of bitchin rad cars in the USA, maybe the world! Every time I come I see something else new and awesome. TGIF- Cruzn Grand!

Where to stay in Escondido

Like many California cities, Escondido is spread out. Downtown lodgings are close to dining and transportation. If the purpose of your visit is to see one of the notable attractions outside of downtown, then consider staying near the attraction.
