Just down the road from Temecula in Escondido, CA, is a car adventure you have to check out while you’re visiting California. Since the early 2000s, Downtown Escondido has become a place where hot rods gather and the community and visitors come to check them out. They call it Cruisin’ Grand, and it’s quickly become one of the top pastimes in this California community.

Temecula CA attractions

Cruisin’ Grand happens every Friday night, usually beginning in April. You can come to Grand Avenue anytime between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. to join about 5,000 other visitors to see over 500 hot rods, classic cars, vintage vehicles, and more line the streets. People love to see the cars, meet up with friends, and just enjoy the atmosphere. Plus, you can check out all that the area has to offer in terms of restaurants, bars, shopping, and more.

At Greenleaf Rent A Car, we encourage Temecula visitors to check out this local tradition. Not only does it make you feel like you’re transported back to the mid-1900s, but it’s also a free event. You just can’t pass up enjoying a little piece of California Americana. Escondido is only about 30 minutes from Temecula, CA. You can hop in your car rental, take a cruise of your own, and enjoy some time at the Cruisin’ Grand.
