Welk Resort San Diego is spread on a massive 450-acre property in Escondido, a 45-minute drive north of downtown San Diego. Spacious and well-maintained condo-style suites -- complete with full kitchens and private patios or balconies -- are ideal for families and larger groups looking to be away from the city center. Upgraded room types offer fireplaces in both the living room and master bedroom.
Nestled in an isolated area surrounded by gorgeous mountain views, the property has plenty of activities on site. There are five unique recreation centers spread throughout the property, including kid-friendly and adults-only options. There are multiple pools with waterslides, golf courses, game rooms, rock climbing areas and even a live theater offering Broadway-style musicals, comedy shows and tribute bands.
For dining options, visit the full-service on-site restaurant, Canyon Grille. A few kiosks and snack shops are also located throughout the property, including a Pizza Hut Express.
For even more dining options, guests can take a 15-minute drive into Escondido, home to the popular San Diego Zoo Safari Park, which features giraffes, rhinos and cheetahs. Those interested in wineries and vineyards can visit Orfila Vineyards & Winery, Cordiano Winery or Hungry Hawk Vineyards & Winery -- all are under 30 minutes away. Downtown San Diego is a 45-minute drive away and around the corner from SeaWorld. With beautiful weather year-round, there’s never a bad time to visit this area.
