The fifth largest city in San Diego County, El Cajon is a wonderful place to call home. This vibrant and active community is just 21 miles from downtown San Diego and offers award winning schools, ideal family neighborhoods, shopping, museums, and other popular amenities such as parks, walking trails, and farmer’s market just to name a few.
Spanish for “the big box,” El Cajon is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains with San Diego and La Mesa west, Spring Valley south and Santee just north. Sought after suburban communities here include Fletcher Hills, Rancho San Diego and Bostonia. Throughout the city you will find a wide variety of home styles, from modern condominiums, expansive properties on large lots, to traditional homes on tree-lined streets. With our classic southern California weather, this is a sought after community for even the most hard to please homebuyer. Three school districts serve El Cajon.
While El Cajon has a larger population, it also captures the spirit of a small town. With an active downtown presence that hosts a variety of community related events each year such as the Mother Goose Parade, HauntFest on Main, Classic Cruise Car Shows, and America on Main Street, this is where families gather to celebrate nostalgic celebrations seeped in a rich and honored heritage.
A short drive to the beaches, professional sporting events and other popular San Diego attractions, El Cajon offers easy access to major freeways as well as a public transportation system.
