I’m pretty sure Lakeside is overlooked by San Diego tourists, maybe even by most San Diego county residents. Which is a little sad, since it’s a small town with some rural character and some beautiful gems. If you were to make a list of things to do in Lakeside, it wouldn’t include beaches and theme parks, because there aren’t any. But what it WILL include is lakes and mountains, impressive parks, a historic main street, ranches, rodeos, and some great eats. And that’s just for starters.

The park surrounding the lake includes a walking trail all the way around the park, plenty of parking spots, restrooms, a skate park, fitness stations, a dance pavilion, softball field, butterfly garden, horseshoe pits and tennis courts.
