24 hours in idyllwild

Hi! We are a group of 4 girls and a baby coming to Idyllwild for one day/night. We would like to hike, go into the town for a bit and then dinner. Any recommendations?

The best place to eat is the Gastronome or Gastro Gnome. It's also probably the most expensive, but it's worth it. The worst place to eat is Jo'An's. Hiking can be done at Humber Park, Idyllwild Nature Center and nearby Mt. San Jacinto State Park. Note that parking permits may be required at these parks. There is a ranger station in the town where you can buy the permits.

We welcome you to town!

sunrisesandiego has good recommendations. Restaurant Gastrognome is excellent. There are other excellent restaurants: Cafe Aroma, FERRO, Fratello's Italian Ristorante, La Casita Mexican Restaurant, Idyllwild Pizza Company, Mile High Cafe (amazing menu, "cafe" is misleading), Tommy's Kitchen, and others.

While you're in town, be sure to meet our Golden Retriever elected Mayor, Mayor Max! More at www.mayormax.com. He's in town a lot, but to be sure, call to schedule a meet-up. Contact information is on his website. He'd love to meet you!

Enjoy your trip!
