Escondido (pronounced /ˌɛskənˈdiːdoʊ/ "es-cone-DEE-doe") is a city located in California, just north of the city of San Diego. The name means "hidden" in Spanish—it occupies a shallow valley ringed by rocky hills. Founded in 1888, it is one of the oldest cities in San Diego County. The city has an estimated population of 144,831. The city is known as Eskondiid in Diegueño. A nationwide study in 2005 ranked Escondido #11 out of 25 of the most conservative cities in America.
Escondido is located at 33°7'29" North, 117°4'51" West (33.124794, -117.080850).
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 94.5 km² (36.5 mi²). 94.0 km² (36.3 mi²) of it is land and 0.5 km² (0.2 mi²) of it is water. The total area is 0.52% water.
The city is growing at a rapid rate with new communities like Hidden Trails appearing at the east end of East Valley Parkway. The city proper is surrounded by several sparsely populated unincorporated communities. These include Jesmond Dene and Hidden Meadows to the north; Felicita Park to the southwest; and Rincon Del Diablo to the southeast. Residents of these communities have Escondido mailing addresses and zip codes, and they are sometimes assigned to Escondido schools, but they cannot participate in city elections.
The city is made up of several neighborhoods:
Downtown Escondido is an area of approximately 460 acres (1.9 km2) extending from the intersection of I-15 and Valley Parkway on the west to Palomar Hospital on the east. The Downtown Retail District is an area of 24 acres (0.10 km2) bounded by Valley Parkway, 2nd Avenue, Maple Street, and Juniper Street.
Old Escondido is bounded by Escondido Boulevard on the west, Chestnut Street on the east, Fifth Avenue on the north, and Thirteenth Avenue on the south. This area is made up of mostly single-family residential housing.
