Now is a great time of the year to visit this great destination Baja California Mexico’s Valle de Guadalupe wine region was a relatively unknown part of the world to many travelers and food lovers. With its breezy climate, bountiful wine, and locally-inspired cuisine, it was a treasured coastal respite for Mexican nationals and, just a 90 minute drive from San Diego, a secret getaway for southern Californians in the know. Over the past five years, however, the sleepy town, which sits about 30 miles inland from Baja’s port city of Ensenada, has become a bonafide tourist destination. Travel media have hailed the region as a place of gastronomic and atmospheric perfection and coupled with a push by winemakers into the U.S. market, the idyllic spot is firmly marked on Mexico’s must-visit map.
In the heart of the United States, there is a day that transcends time and embodies the core values of a nation: 4th of July, also known as Independence Day.
