Flying high over the mountains of Southern California, you may glimpse the city of El Cajon in the valley below. At night, sparkling like a jewel nestled amid the surrounding mountains, you can see why the city's nickname is "The Big Box." As flights to El Cajon sweep over San Diego and drop down to San Diego International Airport (SAN), the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean lies to the west with mountains to the east.
El Cajon lies 16 miles northeast of San Diego International Airport—a 24-minute drive in a rental car. To embrace the ambiance of the southland, a taxi, shuttle, or bus can take you to San Diego's light rail system, The Trolley, where you can relax and enjoy the ride to areas surrounding El Cajon hotels. A little tired after your flight? Relax by strolling along El Cajon's streets and art alleys, where artists have decorated everything from old brick walls, to dumpsters. The trolley also takes you to the Convention Center, San Diego's Old Town, and to the border, where you can cross over to Tijuana and immerse yourself in Mexico's rich culture. Is the beach calling your name? The Trolley carries you downtown, where you can transfer to a bus that will take you to a sandy beach for sunning or surfing. If you prefer to drive, jump on the freeway and take I-8 west to the coast, then continue on city streets to Ocean Beach, or head north on I-5 to Mission Bay Park or La Jolla.
With all the history, parks, and museums, you can spend weeks exploring while on El Cajon vacations.
