    Friendly staff. Good amount of restrooms and restaurants. The animals looked like they were healthy and happy. I wish there were more exhibits there. There's so much room. It would be great if there were more animals.

    We saw a Beatles tribute band and an Eagles tribute band during our week vacation. Great bands, great sound system, comfortable seats, not a bad seat in the house. Nice selection of drinks and snacks.

    My friend had told us about this place from a family member that tried it before. Pretty awesome place we did not do a brewery tour we went for dinner only. When on a weeknight it was not very crowded was able to get a table without reservations, but I think if you're coming on a weekend it's probably wise to do so. Pretty awesome place did not walk around the entire place but from where we are resetting it look huge. Plenty of bidders to try along with a full bar. Dinner was fantastic I went with the pulled pork sandwich along with the order of onion rings. There are several other things I wanted to try in the menu that went with the pulled pork sandwich which I felt was a good choice. Other friends enjoyed a fish taco, a burger and southern fried chicken sandwich. Pretty reasonably priced menu would like to eat there again and try some different options. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

    This exhibit was a bit hard to find, but well worth looking for. My husband and I both loved it. It is very unique. We have never seen anything like it. It is open very limited times so be sure and check times/days before going.

    We enjoyed our tasting experience at Orfila. Our red flight consisted on four generous pours from their San Pasquale valley estate: Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Ambassador’s Syrah. All were good but the Syrah’s were very dry and needed rich foods to better appreciate. We elected to purchase a bottle of the hostess’s favorite: 2018 Tempranillo from their Arroyo Grande vineyard… it was Excellent!

    Wow! The current exhibit by artists inspired by Frido Kahlo is great fun and educational. In Covid-19 this museum is limiting the number of visitors and taking temperature checks upon arrival. There is free parking in the adjacent lot and tickets can be purchased on line or upon entry to this museum. Because it's quite popular and free for residents of Escondido, I'd suggest arriving at the opening time to have a pleasant, safe visit prior to mid-November when this special show closes.

    Very nice bridge to walk across. Not much of a lake but we did see some water in the distance. My only gripe about the bridge is that a child could easily squeeze through the railing if weren’t paying attention.

    The view in this video lace is out of this world. It is basically on top of the hill and allow you to see so many hills, valleys and mountains while sipping wonderful wine and enjoying decent food along with a cool breeze. Friendly and fast service along with the location is what caused the high rating. Also, the pizza is excellent.

    This was my first venture to Daley Ranch, starting at the parking lot off Honda Drive. There are toilets and potable water at the parking lot.
    There are two options just off the parking lot - the paved road, which is about 3/4 of a mile long and leads directly to the Ranch house, which is a private residence and open once a month for 3 hours to visitors. The initial incline is very steep and a little bit of a slog but not too long. The path goes up and down a few times before reaching the ranch house. The land surrounding the ranch, and outbuildings are interesting to walk around. There are flush bathrooms there and potable water. There are benches and a few picnic tables.
    The other option off the parking lot is a wide dirt path. This branches off a few times, so if you don’t have a map, remember to take photos of the junctions or notice land marks. I visited shortly after some rain and some of the path was severely rutted and slightly tricky to navigate in steep locations. I don’t know how often a ranger traverses they trail, but one passed me in a utility vehicle - possibly checking out the trail condition. Eventually they had to turn back because of the ruts.
    There are some benches along the way. If you want to make it to the ranch house, take the left branch called East Ridge. I believe it is about 3/4 of a mile from there. There are other trails I didn’t have time to take. This was a nice break from the city, felt fairly remote but safe. I saw other hikers and some mountain bikers.

    We ate outdoors and the food was wonderful. Especially the fried mushrooms, octopus and the the warm mussels are our favorite.

    With a number of places for the little ones to visit, I was very intrigued by Eco Vivarium for my 15 year old grandson. We booked a private tour and we’re cheerfully met by Shelly who proceeded to give us an in-depth back ground on many of the rescued reptiles. We were were also able to hold or touch many of reptiles. There were a number of sad stories as to how the animals came to stay here. Shelly knew each one and had background stories for all. Without Eco Vivarium these animals would not exist. My grandson loved this tour! Thanks Shelly 5 Stars!

    Lovely hike, it is not an easy stroll, you do go up in elevation, but the views from the top is worth it. Summertime I would recommend early morning or very late afternoon, not much shade. The stream at the bottom is always a welcome site.

    My husband and I had a a truly extraordinary time at Avian Bird International! Hillary and her team were friendly, capable, and knowledgeable. We were able to hike with Kipling the hornbill who was such a charmer! The macaws were incredible to see in majestic flight, and it was so exciting to get to meet and hold Ripley the spectacled owl! We also very much loved socializing with Linus the white-necked raven. We learned so much from Hillary and her team while we were there and had a great time. 10/10 experience, would absolutely recommend!

    Stopped by here and had some cheese and crackers and did the wine tastings. The first couple of wines were rough, but 3-5 were decent. There's also a car museum and cool grounds, but we didn't have time for that. Worth a stop if in the area. The staff and guy up front were friendly and deserve a positive shout out. Would return if in the area

    If someone told me that I am too easy of a grader/rater, and that I needed to retract some of the 5-star ratings that I have given, I can tell you that my 5-star rating of Espinosa Vineyards would be one of the last ones that I would reduce. Not only is the setting relaxing and conducive to fellowship, but the wine is of a quality and on par (or even BETTER than) reds (or I should say, "tinto") I have enjoyed in AVA's that always seem to carry the bragging rights (and which put a much bigger dent in your wallet). Roberto has honed the winemaking craft and is sharing it with all who visit. He and his wife are friendly, warm and inviting. I don't feel there is any chance that you'll be disappointed by making the drive out here. In fact, I'm certain you will come away impressed - by how they have crafted the landscape and the wines they serve. I think I have a pretty sharp wine palette for red varietals and I rank Espinosa up there with some of my favorites - and most certainly at this price point (so yes, I bought 5 bottles - mostly Petite Sirah!)
