Less than 90 minutes from Escondido, El Monte, San Bernadino or Palm Springs and a lot of places in between is very different, mile high town in the San Jacinto Mountains you need to experience.
Whether your family is into mountain biking or mountain climbing, hiking, camping, snow shoeing, shopping, sight seeing or just relaxing and enjoying the mountain views and the wind in the tall Pines, Idyllwild has something for your whole crew.
Tall pines and unique shops, there’s no franchise stores here, line the criss-crossing streets of this small (population 4,000) town watched over by two large peaks: Lily Rock (also known as Taquitz) and Suicide Rock are both noted for fantastic mountain climbing.
Loads of accomodation from motels to family rental cabins tucked away in the woods and a great selection of local restaurants will look after your every need. Local artists, artisans and crafters offer a collection we found unique to this area.
Why not load up the kids and the camera, I guarantee you’ll enjoy the fantastic mountain views enroute as much as you love your time in Idyllwild.
