Just west of San Diego in Southern California, El Cajon is a unique city surrounded by mountains. Although the name means “big box,” residents don’t mind being “boxed in” by the glorious mountain views. The city began as Rancho El Cajon in 1845, and the city was incorporated in 1912.

With its ideal weather, proximity to San Diego, and postcard-worthy landscape, El Cajon is a popular location. When you finally find your ideal apartment in El Cajon, you’ll enjoy a friendly community, great shops and restaurants, and a fantastic parks system. Parks include Judson Park, a park famous for its charming gazebo surrounded by roses. Art shows, events, and community activities take place at Prescott Promenade, a lovely downtown park with grassy knolls, bench seating, and the Ronald Reagan Community Center. Dog owners will appreciate the Wells Off-Leash Dog Area, a 1.4 acre park complete with picnic tables, dog-friendly water fountains, and two separate play areas.

The heart of El Cajon is its hip, funky, and pedestrian-friendly downtown. The downtown area is filled with unique shops, boutiques, a large indoor mall, and restaurants. Downtown also hosts live events, including musical performances, fairs, and festivals.
