La Mesa, California is located 9 miles east of Downtown San Diego in San Diego County and is known as the “Jewel of the Hills”. It is bound by the city of San Diego to the west and north, Spring Valley and Lemon Grove to the south and El Cajon to the east and includes the neighborhood of Grossmont. Since La Mesa is located 12 miles from the Pacific Ocean it experiences higher temperatures than San Diego. La Mesa experiences hot and dry summers, warm winters and is less prone to the marine layer which frequents the areas closer to the Pacific Ocean making this area filled with days of sunshine and warm weather year round. Add in very walkable neighborhoods, a friendly community, trolley and bus line friendliness, easy access to retail stores and a charming village at the heart of the city, La Mesa is a great place to live and work.

Helix is a landmark that is a must-see when in La Mesa, California.
