Only two hours from Los Angeles or San Diego, Idyllwild is a fun day trip- cruise the scenic byway, take a hike, enjoy a relaxed meal with your dog curled at your feet, and discover an unusual souvenir. Mile high (an hour up from Riverside and Palm Springs) our cooler weather is a welcomed break from the heat below too. With so much to do (or not do), depending on your mood, you’ll want to come and stay awhile. Perfect for family vacations, winter holidays and romantic getaways, we have charming inns, rental cabins, and camping of all sorts.
