Real Californian life in Ramona

In its jumble of hearty cafes, American diners, wide streets, cowboy saloons, barbershops, and Tex-Mex houses, little Ramona is just about as local as it's possible to get in this much-visited southern section of California. Inhabitants bustle about the town in mud-spattered pick-ups with a beaming smile across their face, while travelers can make the most of rustic country lodges with sweeping views over the rugged Swartz Canyon, or cozy Ramona vacation rentals that nestle in the shadow of the alpine Cleveland National Forest.

Reaching the South Cali outdoors in Ramona

For some visitors to dusty Ramona, it's all about the wines. Organized tasting tours depart most days to flit between the cellar doors of the greater Ramona Valley, offering a tipple of South Cali's world-famous reds and whites, along with sommelier classes, cooking courses, and more. The great outdoors beckon, too. You'll have hardy canyons to clamber through. You'll have wild chaparral-surrounded campsites to gaze skywards at the desert stars in. You'll have snow-dusted ridges to walk, and dense spruce forests to explore by foot.

Enjoy wine-tasting tours in Ramona

From the colorful Salerno Winery on the south-west of town to the award-winning Turtle Rock Ridge Vineyard in the east, the beautiful Milagro Farm Winery with its views over the rolling chaparral hills to the refined Principe di Tricase farm with its ranges of Italian-origin grapes, there are simply oodles of cellar doors to taste your way through here. Alternatively, you could just shoot for the trails straight away – the vast Cleveland National Forest is the place to go for adventures through alpine valleys and woods.

Long summers in Ramona

It's all about feeling the sun on your face in this southern corner of California. The warmer months tend to stretch out well past October, making dry, dusty days the norm, even higher up here in the Cuyamaca Mountains. The best months to visit are typically in the spring and fall, when the temperatures are more like summer elsewhere in the US. Book your Ramona vacation rentals in May, June, or September to enjoy those sorts of prime wine-sipping and hiking conditions.

Ramona is rugged American country

Ramona's seat on the westward ridges of the Cuyamaca Mountains places it neatly between some of the most defining wildernesses around San Diego. Some will search for Ramona vacation rentals in the Cleveland National Forest, which spreads out northwards from town. Loop trails like the Sunset Trail and the Meadows Trail there wiggle through alpine flower fields and fir groves, while prowling mountain lions and gray foxes scurry this way and that. The Swartz Canyon County Park is closer to the center, and hides gushing waterfalls between its red-hued gorges.
