If you happen to be in the Carlsbad area and remember the TV show "The Cisco Kid" take a trip to the Leo Carrillo Ranch. Although you can explore on your own any time the park is open, tour guides have keys to open doors to historic buildings and have much fascinating information to share, such as how a structure...

this place is cool to hang out and there are a bunch of beautiful wild Peacocks running around! Feels really historic - will have to go again and spend more time. I was there for a baby's birthday party.

Interesting and charming place to visit. Leo Carrillo was a California icon and his ranch gives you a great look into the personality of this man. Some wonderful parties were held here, I hear.

Built in Spanish Mission style, a visit provides a look at some of his film memorabilia and a walk about the ranch including an old adobe. My favorite part is a chance to hike the adjacent trails, some of which are just across the road from... More

An authentic, beautiful & well preserved piece of local history. Walking the park makes it easy to imagine life on the hacienda decades ago. The short film in the barn is well worth watching.
