Historic Walking Tour Schedule
The Old Escondido Historic District, in partnership with the Escondido History Center, is pleased to offer free Walking Tours of Historic Escondido.
Held in conjunction with the "Second Saturday" Arts and Museums events, the 90-minute tours take place on the second Saturday of every month, beginning at 10:00 a.m. on the southeast corner of Broadway and Grand. No reservations needed.
Four different routes are offered:
Downtown - a tour of Grand Avenue, a glimpse into the history of Escondido's early business district.
Rediscovering Escondido - a tour of buildings no longer standing! See the sites where once stood the USC seminary, the Hotel Escondido, Escondido High School and more. The walk includes a fairly steep hill.
Old Escondido West - a tour of the Old Escondido Historic District, the city's oldest neighborhood, along Broadway and to the west. You'll see a house where mayors have lived and another where the town barber lived with his goats and chickens! This walk also includes a steep hill.
Old Escondido East - a tour of the eastern part of the Old Escondido Historic District that includes two of our most notable Victorian period homes.
