Loved O'Reilly's Irish Pub (great music on Sunday night!) and A Delight of France (great pastries; took some home to my France-loving family, who concurred) in particular. Was very sorry to have to miss the tea room.

Make sure and go on a Friday night for "Cruisin' Grand"-hundreds of classic cars, sidewalk cafes, always a new restaurant popping up. Open every Friday night during daylight savings time.

Lots of variety including antiques, tea shops, restaurants, delis, and salons. You can even stroll onto Maple Street Plaza to sit and read, play a card game or let your kids play in the water. The arrival of the Catholic University has brought new life to town center.

We visited Escondido in January and walked Grand Street on 2 separate days. After having lunch at Bellamy's, we walked and shopped for several hours. Cute shops, huge variety. Not the mall-variety chains; everything from a pet shop specializing in birds to antiques to bakeries. We were there on Tuesday, when the farmers market is there in the afternoon, and... More
