El Cajon Information and Highlights

Here's a quick rundown of our list:

El Cajon Information and Highlights

Nicknamed “The Big Box”, El Cajon, California was part of the Spaniards plan to commercialize the pastural plains around the Mexican/California area.

During Spanish rule in the epoch that expanded from 1769-1821, the Monarchic government encouraged settlements in the new world by bequeathing explorers, businesses and even the Roman Catholic Church with “Ranchos”; large land grants donated or bought off by powerful lobbies back in Europe in other to expand their power base.

These Ranchos became the platform for most of the economy in the California Basin. Particularly “El Cajon”. The area became prime real-estate, for Papal rule and Crown designed ventures due in part to the fact that it was nestled inside a majestic valley.

Surrounded by foothills, creeks and canyons, El Cajon supported dozens of cattle herds, Native American towns and Catholic Missions.

Nowadays, El Cajon no longer pledges allegiance to the Spanish Crown. It has become a bustling San Diego suburb, lined up with all the amenities of a big city (shopping malls, highways, big box stores, cafes and theaters) only on a smaller scale.

Weather

East San Diego's environment, and more to the point El Cajon’s climate is a delicate ecosystem that can be found only in few other places on earth. It is a microclimate that varies dramatically within a short distance. Described by scientist as a semi-arid plain, El Cajon’s atmosphere is always mild and dry; precipitation's occurring sporadically between the months of November and March.

Recreation

El Cajon’s recreation is mostly content with its vistas and valley like beauty. Outside its city borders a tapestry of city parks, regional trails and National Preserves make the Mesa Plane their home. Meanwhile, if you’re more into an urban setting and getting down and dirty is not your thing, El Cajon offers all the highlights of a big city; shopping malls, movie theaters, great restaurants, constant city planned events, a varied nightlife, etc.

Shopping

El Cajon offers its residents all the big named brands the normal American fella’ has grown accustomed to. Pharmacies by the name of Walgreens sprout like cactus over the dry terrain. General stores of both inclinations, mom and pops as well as Publix, churn like dust devils down main street. Big box stores, like Walmart and Best Buy, grow like fungus after heavy rain fall over the land. For everything else, El Cajon has a couple of more than decent shopping pavilions.
