El Cajon Homes
El Cajon is bordered by San Diego and La Mesa on the west, Spring Valley on the south, Santee on the north, and unincorporated San Diego County on the east. It includes the neighborhoods of Fletcher Hills, Bostonia, and Rancho San Diego. Nestled in a valley surrounded by mountains, the city has acquired the nickname of “The Big Box”. Its name originated similarly, from the Spanish phrase “el cajón”, which means “the box” or “the drawer.” Whether you enjoy classic car shows, Friday night concerts in the park, performances at the East County Performing Arts Center, or dining in an outdoor café, El Cajon has it. El Cajon boasts the award-winning Grossmont Unified High School District, Grossmont Community College, and is just minutes away from San Diego State University. El Cajon is typically sunny when coastal areas are covered with fog.
