There are some condos, however, so if you want to rent, you're not out of luck. Only 5 percent of homes in Escondido are vacant; however, there is an annual residential turnover of 19 percent, so there's always a chance of finding a place from year to year. The median price to buy a home in Escondido is $329,800 - that's a lot compared to most of the country. But people who own a home here get spectacular houses in spectacular surroundings.
  • The Great Outdoors The outdoors reign supreme in Escondido. If you like to golf, there are great courses in the city. Eagle Crest Golf Club is one of the most beautiful courses in the entire San Diego area, while the Vineyard at Escondido offers the chance to play golf in a spectacular setting, after which you can try the wine at the Orfila Vineyard and Winery.
