Where to stay in El Cajon

About El Cajon

A small city with strong Spanish influences, El Cajon sits in a valley just east of San Diego and is surrounded by mountains. El Cajon is the perfect base camp for an array of outdoor activities, as there’s easy access to a variety of natural spaces and hiking trails.

Things to do

When it comes to California, it’s all about outdoor adventures. Head to Mission Trails Regional Park, just 20-minutes north of El Cajon to enjoy endless hiking trails, rugged canyons and picturesque hills. Spend the day hiking, biking or horseback riding amongst nature. Alternatively, take a boat ride across Lake Murray or camp out at Kumeyaay Lake.

Consider yourself an astronomy enthusiast? Head up to Mt. Helix Park in the evening and you might learn a thing or two. At 396 metres above sea level, the Mt. Helix Park offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape and a clear view of the night’s sky. There’s also an amphitheatre in the park, so it’s worth checking the website calendar to see what’s on when.

If you’re looking for family-friendly fun then head to Boomers, a kid-friendly entertainment park featuring golf courses, go karting and arcade games. Alternatively, you can enjoy equinox laser tag that is suitable for adults and children alike.

To the north of the city sits the Creation and Earth History museum which provides an interesting day out for both culture vultures and history buffs. From live dinosaur displays to biblical exhibits, there’s something for everyone.

Getting Around

El Cajon sits only a 25-minute drive east of San Diego and San Diego International Airport. The easiest way to get around the city is by car, or by using the public buses that serve the area.
