East San Diego County
The communities in East San Diego County offer a warmer climate and quieter atmosphere than those in the metro region. While the landscape is still largely suburban, natural wonders and preserves are never far away, including most notably Lake Murray and the sprawling Mission Trails Regional Park.
Santee is home to Grossmont College, Santee Lakes Park and one of the county’s few remaining drive-in theaters. El Cajon has Parkway Shopping Mall and over a dozen parks. Spring Valley residents can go camping or fishing at Sweetwater Reservoir or have a blast with the biannual Mud Run. And La Mesa hosts entertaining annual events like the ‘50s car show, and has incredible views from Mt. Helix.
