I loooove Grand Ave in downtown Escondido. It's an old-fashioned downtown that has the potential for a really, really cool atmosphere and could offer the residents of Escondido a wealth of entertainment, shopping and dining choices, but, sigh......it looks like the City of Escondido isn't very interested in this. The businesses that are there like the French Bakery, The Loft, some art galleries and restaurants and a coffee house are great. They defintely hold this downtown area together, but there are so many opportunities for additional retail businesses it blows my mind. I will keep giving my business to Grand Ave because I love it and I want it to prosper. But the City of Escondido has to get its act together and start attracting business to the area if it wants to survive.
