The Water Conservation Garden is part of Cuyamaca Community College. It is a beautiful garden planted with an amazing collection of specimens that are adapted to this area and require very little water. It also has great explanations of the difference in water needs of different specimens, instructions on composting, fire safety plantings, and even has classes available for gardening instruction. It has a small gift shop and an amphitheater for group presentations (periodically local agencies give lectures and people even hold weddings here). It is free, but there is a suggested donation. I visit every 2-3 months to get ideas.

Skydive San Diego operates the drop zone to the highest safety standards. We have some of the best skydiving aircraft, equipment and riggers in the industry. Skydive San Diego is also where many of Americas most elite military train receive their solo jump certifications.
One of the things I had to do before I die. It was worth every penny. The people there are very friendly and provide a sense of safety and security to a point that you don't experience fear until you are on the edge of the plane ready to jump. The thrill is unique; nothing and nobody can describe the sensation; it was one of the greatest things I have ever done. If jumping from a plane with a parachute has crossed your mind .... do it!

We are a Small Batch Distillery located in the rural area of San Diego, 15 minutes from downtown in Spring Valley. We make Whiskey, Rum, and Gin. Visit our tasting room and fully functioning distillery. All tastings include tour with insights into distilling in San Diego, and a free gift. Spirit tastings can be in the form of a cocktail starting January 1st, 2016.
This place is a magnificent little craft distillery. It's a short and very worthwhile drive out to visit. The staff was very friendly - and extremely proud and knowledgeable about their product. The spiced rum and whiskey in particular stood out.
A good way to visit this place would be to drive out I-8 and stop for breakfast at Brothers off of Waring Road. Then hit Mission Trails Regional Park for a nice hike, and then proceed to Liberty Call Distilling. Visit close-by San Diego Distilling Company for a different type of spirit (also superb) then snag coffee and lunch in La Mesa. Hit Mission Trails for another hike, then hit a couple of the breweries in Grantville. That would be an awesome San Diego day.

The lake is a reservoir tucked in between residential neighborhoods. The lake offers fishing and kayak rentals. Most people go to the lake to walk, bike, or jog the paved path. The path does not go all the way around the lake. The path ends at a chain link fence. At that point you turn around and return the way you came. There is a lot of parking available at several different parking lots. This is a very popular location on weekends. There are picnic tables under the many eucalyptus trees.

Very nice and friendly winery. There wines are really nice. The owner took lots of time, and told us lots of history about the property.

Beautiful gem in the greater San Diego, definitely worth the short drive up Mount Helix, cruising between wonderful and huge sports players’ and show biz celebs’ houses, up til the breathtaking nature theatre, a “havre de paix”, where nature and the 360 view on all San Diego, mountains and ocean views, are there to shut you up for a while ;)

Golf course near San Diego.
My golf buddies and I live in the area and we play many, many local courses frequently. Steele Canyon is ALWAYS in great shape - plenty of grass on the fairways and superb, fast greens. The views are spectacular and the layout is challenging - first rate golf course.

My wife and I went to the Cozy Thai Massage in Spring Valley, Ca the other day and were pleasantly surprised by how awesome the Thai Massage was for both of us. Yanee and Narin were the massage therapist for me and my wife in separate rooms. We had a 60 minute Thai Combination Massage which was the most intense and relaxing massage we have had in a long time. The different Thai techniques that both Yanee and Narin used on us were new to us, but so relaxing. They gave us a little Hot Stone, and Deep Tissue massages also. After are massages, our lower back pain and range of motion was much better. We will definitely be back to see Yanee & Narin again for another Fantastic way to reduce our stress and anxiety and to feel relaxed.

What a wonderful place to get away from the "town" feeling and enter the country. Beautiful barns with gift shops and homemade soaps plus anything you could want! To sit out on the patio with the birds singing, the beautiful view and such friendly people makes this place perfect. Good for children or for some "couple time" to walk around and enjoy the day! It is wonderful! Enjoy!
