It’s been 20 years since the passing of legendary bandleader Lawrence Welk. Take the occasion to perhaps stop by one of his legacies, the Welk Village Resort just north of Escondido.

The resort includes a museum dedicated to the “Champagne Music Maker” and is located, of course, on Champagne Boulevard, the former route of US 395, just a few minutes from Escondido; look for the Champagne Boulevard exit.

While your at it, consider taking my Crazy Couser drive, which will give you some more details on the resort, plus a fun, twisting route that ends up at Pala Road and I-15.
