Tiki Oasis happens at Town and Country Resort. Family-owned since its inception as a 40-room roadside lodge in 1953, Town and Country, Mission Valley’s first hotel, underwent significant expansions in 1968 and 1969. In honor of Town and Country’s history and mid-century roots, the hotel completed a 70 million-dollar renovation in 2020 and has been re-imagined into a modern retreat, unlike any other hotel in San Diego!
