Poway The City in the Country

Known as the "The City in the Country,” due to its inland geographic location, lack of urban culture and large open spaces, Poway approximately twenty miles from downtown San Diego.

Visitors to the areas can enjoy nearby Museums, Zoos, Parks, Arenas, and Botanical Gardens, including the Stuart Collection, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, San Pasqual Battlefield State Historic Park, and Old Poway Park, all within easy driving distance while taking in the relaxed atmosphere of the surrounding wilderness areas.  A good place to start your trip would be to visit the Poway Historical and Memorial Society, located in the Heritage Museum at the Old Poway Park. The society serves as a repository for many Poway historical artifacts and memorabilia. More about Poway California.
