Santee Information and Highlights

Santee was the homeland of the Kumeyaa People. The original residents of the greater san Diego area. A Native American tribe whose very history may date back more that 12 thousand years. In the late 18th century Spaniards entered their territory and install went about seizing and confiscating lands. They introduced the Kumeyaa to a number of invasive species, that ultimately brought about the degradation of their local ecology, as well as a Mission System meant to win them over to the Catholic faith and away from their pagan beliefs.

The original settlers of the area, fearing the Conquistadors retreated into the Banks of The San Diego River. There they formed a final village, to ward off the Spaniards, called Sinyeweche, what is presently referred to as Santee.

After the American-Mexican war and the opening of the frontier by the railroad, Milton Santee, the second husband of Jenie Blodgett - heiress to her first husband’s vast fortune - started developing the county and the lands. They rapidly decided to christen the area Santee.

One of Santee’s most peculiar qualities is that fact, that despite being a growing suburban community (with upscale housing, a major business park and even a Sportplex) its still retains a sizable portion of vacant land suitable fro development.


Santee has a semi-arid climate, abbreviated "BSk" on climate maps. An area that receives precipitation potential below average and is at the same time the owner of an ecosystem whose summers are mostly hot and dry, while its winters are mild and tame. Humidity not being an issue in Santee.


Santee has an army of activities to captivate its residents. A linear greenbelt, the San Diego River bisecting the city, that includes parks, trails, hiking paths and dozens of other opportune spots for outdoor fun.

Santee also has a 15 acre Sportplex with all types of fields and restaurants. A rock climbing venue called Santee Boulders. A golf course designed by the legendary Pete Dye. And, finally, a 10 week series of free concerts originated each summer by the City’s Service Department.


Big Box stores, open air shopping malls, traditional shopping pavilions, boutiques and souvenir shops, Santee offers the hungry shopper a bourgeoning catalogue of means to happily max out a credit card.
