Community & Education

Escondido is the “Hidden Valley” of San Diego, located just 30 miles northeast of Downtown San Diego. Escondido blends small-town friendliness with big-city buzz and is known for its mild year-round climate. Our local businesses, large and small, contribute to creating our strong local economy and your Escondido Chamber is committed to its vision of “connecting commerce to community” by providing member benefit programs and resources that support Escondido’s quality of life… work, play, live – Escondido has it all!
