Global Discovery Vacations Review: Sun, Sand and Golf in San Diego

Utah natives Janet and Blaine G. recently hopped over to Escondido, California, for a Mother’s Day/birthday retreat. Staying at the Lawrence Welk Resort, Janet tells us how to have a good time in a gorgeous city in this week’s Global Discovery Vacations Member Monday.

Where would you recommend a fellow member to go to…
Eat:
We ate three times at the onsite restaurant and every meal and service was excellent.

Also, the Festival Under the Lights with an outdoor meal, fire for roasting S’mores and live music was great. Having the pools and a huge fire to sit by was awesome.

Cafe Patio is a must for a margaritas!

Shop:
The farmers market comes to you for shopping and fresh food to take to the condo.

Have fun/attractions:
One of the must-see attractions nearby was La Jolla Cove. A must see! Beautiful water and seals. And don’t miss the Cave Store there. A real cave to see!

What was your favorite…
Resort/Condo Amenity:
It really was a relaxing getaway. For us living in Utah, it was a short flight. We stayed in the Villas on the Green. It was super quiet and gave us a great view over the golf course.

The ocean isn’t far and it’s very fun for strolling.

Place to go in the destination:
The resort is not far from SeaWorld or Old Town!

Why did you choose this destination? Were you traveling for a special occasion?
It was for Mother’s Day and a birthday – just the two of us.

What was your favorite memory of your vacation?
Our favorite memory was the resort itself.

Any tips for a traveler going to this resort or destination? Anything you think they should bring?
For the resort, bring a bathing suit, golf clubs and relax.
