MatthewMetcalfe Says: You'll see signs to the winery when you go to the Wild Animal Park. We stopped by on a whim to see what they had and were rewarded for it.The winery itself is fairly small and we didn't take a tour. Once you've seen a few wineries you pretty much get the idea.The tasting was...
This sign at the Battlefield Park has good advice on it. Here is some better advice. Take sunscreen with you if you are going to hike over the hill to see the monument. I got a sunburned nose. Here is some even better advice. You can see the monument from a parking area along side the road without having to take that long hot hike if you don't want to. The hike was worth it for me. I saw some cactus wrens and california quail there. From the top of the hill I also got a good view of the Wild Animal Park.

Lake Wohlford is a nice place for families such as for fishermen.
And for cyclists, it's close to Cole Grade Rd which leads you all the way (follwoing Cole Grade and Nate Harrison Grde) up to Palomar Mountain
Equipment: depending on your activity
cyclists: adapters to pump your inner tubes at public gas stations, or hand-pump your extra tube you're hopefully taking with you

Favorite thing: The weather in Escondido during Novemeber and December is reported on average as:
November 74° High 47° Low
December 70° High 42° Low
I'd say the weather is usually a bit cooler during the day, most of the time, maybe in the mid to low 60's, sometimes (rarely) rainy, but in general a bit cooler than the suggested average.
Besides that which has been mentioned, Lawrence Welk has a pool with water slide, but this might not be a big draw at that time of year, unless you experience one of the hotter days.
Lawrence Welk Resort is located amidst the trees and hills of Escondido This resort is in a more "countryfied" section of San Deigo and not at the hub of the area.
However, when not visiting relatives, I'm sure you will find plenty of interesting things to see and do in and around the area.
In Escondido, there are lakes where fishing is popular, a few shopping areas such as North County Fair, wineries, Orfilia and Rancho Bernardo. Oh, and for the daughter, a pretty interesting sculpture park, "Queen Califia's Magical Circle" is situated in Kit Carson Park.
Escondido is especially known for it's artistic bent and besides, antique shops, galleries and restaurants, there are several live theater venues, including the very popular, California Center for the Arts, Escondido
MODE, The Museums of Downtown Escondido, include the Children's Museum which might interest your daughter as well as the Mingei International Museum. My granddaughter liked it quite a lot, especially since I gave her a "throw-a-way" camera to take photos with.
