Escondido Real Estate Homes and Condos

Incorporated in 1888, Escondido is one of the oldest cities in San Diego County. Escondido, which is Spanish for “hidden,” is situated in a valley amidst rolling hills and mesas. No longer a ‘hidden valley’, today, Escondido has a population of over 140,000 residents and is the fourth largest city in San Diego. The community is well connected with the rest of the County by Interstate 15.

In the past, citrus and grape cultivation contributed largely to the community’s growth; which once had the largest lemon-packing house in the world. Besides agriculture, Escondido’s economy today is fueled by industries such as tourism, service, high-tech and retail sectors.

Escondido is famous for its vineries and boasts of some of the oldest vineyards in San Diego. The Grape Day festival and parade is held every year to commemorate the city’s main cash crop of the yesteryears.

There are a variety of shopping and recreational options in Escondido. The community’s numerous art and antique stores are a popular shopping destination for residents and visitors alike. For those wanting modern products, the Westfield Mall of North County has products and services to meet all your needs. Other popular destinations include the California Center for the Arts, Escondido History Center, Wild Animal Park, and the many local Wineries and Casinos. For outdoor enthusiasts, boating and fishing are readily available in the three lakes located in close proximity to the community.

There are more than 43,800 households in Escondido with over 31,100 families residing in the community. Real estate projects such as the downtown Escondido revitalization project, property improvement programs, and Business Retention and Expansion Programs are poised to take the community to higher economic heights.

Escondido was ranked as the best place to retire by Money Magazine (2001 issue).
