North County Sprinter

North San Diego Sprinter

The North San Diego Sprinter runs between Escondido and Oceanside every half hour.  For $2 you can ride to the beach ($1) for seniors.  Just hop aboard at one of the stations located all along the route and enjoy the scenery of areas never seen before by car, have lunch, shop, or watch the ocean waves.  Take your children or grandchildren with you (under 6 years old travels free).  What a great way to spend a couple of hours and save gas.

Top of the City of San Marcos with 360 degree panoramic views.  On a clear day you can see Catalina Island.  Just opened in 2009,  Double Peak Park is a must visit when you come to San Marcos. You can drive all the way to the top where you will find a picnic area with tables, a children’s rock climbing area and

other childrens play equipment. You will be captivatedby the views. Be sure to  bring your cameras.  For the best photos, come early while the air is clear.  I guarantee you will be  impressed with what San Marcos has to offer.  Take Double Peak Drive from San Elijo Rd (aka Twin Oaks Valley Rd) just north of the community of San Elijo Hills.
