El Cajon Travel Guide

El Cajon, situated within a valley covered in mountains, is located in San Diego County and over the years, has gotten the nickname “The Big Box”- a loose Spanish translation of el cajón” meaning “the box” or “drawer”. El Cajon prides itself on being business orientated but knowing how to have fun, offering a variety of exciting activities and residents who know how to let loose after a long day.

Things to Do in El Cajon

Visitors who come to El Cajon are pleasantly surprised with how many fun activities the city has to offer. Shopping is one of the most popular tourist activities, as El Cajon is home to the ever expanding Parkway Plaza Mall, which includes a variety of stores such as Walmart, Macy’s, and Kay’s. Also within Parkway Plaza is El Cajon’s Regal Cinemas- a cinema that offers both 3D and regular movie showings. Syucan Casino, open 24 hours a day, is a popular choice for guests who want to spend their evening playing slots or card games, and snacking on classic bar food. Visitors who prefer the great outdoors can enjoy the California sunshine by spending their time at The Water Conservation Garden, Summers Past Farms, and Lake Miramar which is only a few miles away in beautiful San Diego.
