About El Cajon, CA


El Cajon is a city in southern California that is surrounded by mountains. The city itself lays in a valley, and got the name El Cajon for its geography—in Spanish the name means “The Big Box”, which is also the city’s English nickname. Today, El Cajon has a population of almost 100,000 people, and the city has steadily grown over the past few decades. At one point, El Cajon was just a small border town, but today it is flush with shopping malls and other local amenities that American cities have become accustomed to.
