Escape to Alpine in the hills east of San Diego and enter a little slice of heaven! Children’s Nature Retreat is a magical and serene ranch-style animal sanctuary that is a safe haven to over 200 animals from around the world. On a docent-led, interactive tour we’ll befriend all different types of creatures such as tortoises, turkeys, pigs, llamas, alpacas, zebras and so much more!  They even have a mini farm section with all miniature animals such as goats and ponies! While home to mostly herbivores and omnivores, the sanctuary is home to 25 different species and 69 different breeds – the smallest is a guinea pig while the largest is a camel or bison!  Many of the animals were donated by owners that could no longer keep or care for them because of illness, old age, financial hardship, relocation, or death, while others were rescued after being abandoned. These animals will now live out the rest of their lives in the serenity of this retreat that is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and their families, though all ages can explore and make beautiful memories here. We’ll enjoy an included boxed lunch picnic under a picturesque large oak tree and soak up the sights and sounds of this special oasis. This afternoon we continue to Summers Past Farms, a charming country destination on Old Highway 80 in the foothills of the Cuyamaca Mountains. The beautiful gardens are in bloom year-round and feature both a fairy garden and a nursery stocked with sage and native plants, herbs, succulents, annuals and perennials for sale. The Barn Shoppe is a rustic post and timber barn filled with a collection of fairy items for your garden, as well as garden and home décor. The Soap Shoppe is filled with handmade herbal soaps, lavender sprays, herbal salves and a full line of essential and fragrance oils. We’ll stop at a locals’ favorite on the way home and enjoy an included ice cream. This tour involves moderate walking over uneven terrain.
To ensure a healthy and enjoyable travel experience for our guests, this tour will operate with additional health and safety measures in place and require each guest show proof of vaccination and complete a Wellness Pledge.
