San Diego’s East County is wide spread from Spring Valley, La Mesa, El Cajon, Lemon Grove, and Santee all the way to the mountains heading towards Imperial County. It is the fourth most populous region of San Diego. East county homes consist of both planned suburban developments, and also character and ranch style homes. A great attribute to homeowners in the East County is the amount of land they own in tranquil and open settings. Outdoor activities are convenient and accessible with hiking at Mission Trails Regional Park including Cowles Mountain, camping and fishing at Santee Lakes, and exercise at Lake Murray’s bike and walking path. Drive over to one of the many famous casinos and enjoy the slot machines, outlet shopping, and dining. Hankering for an apple pie? Head East on I-8 to the Cuyamaca Mountains where you will find the quintessential town of Julian and delight in their world-famous pies, seasonal snow, and all the history and charm you desire.
