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.

Best Places to Stay in El Cajon

Vacation rentals in El Cajon are plentiful. There are a number of great rental homes all across the city- some have a central downtown location, while others are a bit more out of the way and are located on larger properties. The downtown rentals are the most popular, as they allow guests to stay in the heart of the city where all of the action takes place and where the nightlife thrives after sundown. Each rental is kept up to date and features unique decor.

Best Time to Visit El Cajon

The best time to visit El Cajon is during the summer. The city, since it’s located so close to San Diego and La Mesa, can attract quite a few tourists during the peak summer months, however.
