  1. Default From San Diego to Palm Springs help with the route please

    We will be driving from San Diego to Palm Springs in September and were maybe looking at taking a more scenic route than the Freeway.

    Can anyone tell us which would be a good way and how long it should take us.

    Hope you can help.

    Take I-8 east out of SD to Descanso. Take CA-79 north through Cuyamaca State Park to Julian. Stop at the Julian Pie Company for some of the best apple pie you will find anywhere.

    Stay on 79 out of Julian to Santa Ysabel, stay on 79 which will be a right turn. Take that through Warner Springs to Aguanga and turn right on CA-371. This will end at CA-74, turn right and this will take you over the mountain down into Palm Desert, which is right next to Palm Springs.

    This is 160 miles, and it shouldn't take you more than 4 hours plus stops.
