Several antique stores
My wife and I were waiting for a lunch spot to open and took a walk for a couple blocks in each direction. There are a good number of shops on the street and a good variety of restaurants available. I understand there are car shows and such on certain nights of the week. Probably a lot more to do... 更多
You might notice from other posts, we did a wine tasting road trip. All of wineries along the road, and there are many, are very good, all different, very busy. The tasting can be very expensive at all of the locations. But yes would do it again, just wish they had a very nice or any restaurant along the route.
Like many town, as malls and bigbox stores have grown, people have lost sight of the great downtown shops, restaurants and events that go on. Grand is a perfect example of this, there are many great shops and great restaurants along Grand and in the summer the activity increases with "Cruisin' Grand" where you can see great classic cars that... 更多
Grand Ave has really started to shine. There is weekly farmers market, fine restaurants, Drapers and Damons (my personal favorite place to shop), and many small shops. During the summer the old cars come out and line the street on the weekend. Right off Grand Ave is the theater.

Tuesday farmer's market is fun,. 2nd Saturday events and Cruising Grand in the spring and summer. Lots of places to eat and meet up with friends.

There are still some junk shops, but there's also a couple of art galleries, an outdoor equipment/clothing store, a beauty salon (a nice one), and a guitar shop (with lessons).

The walk along Grand during the Friday car shows and festivities is really fun and nice. So many restaurants and goodies to enjoy. See people you know and more that you don't but will. Very friendly and enjoyable. Even for kids and pets!
Be sure to stop in Escondido to explore Grand Avenue. There are some really good little restaurants to discover, a wonderful antique mall, unique shops, homemade gelato, and Friday nights between April and October the classic automoblies and trucks are out on display! Street fair atmosphere -- live music and lots of fun.
