Nicknamed the “Jewel of the Hills,” La Mesa is a beautiful city located about 12 miles east of downtown San Diego. The city’s name in Spanish means “the table”. This is in reference to La Mesa's plateau geography which it’s famous for. Tree-lined streets, a near-perfect climate, walkable neighborhoods, a quaint downtown village, and easy access to retail and commercial areas make La Mesa a highly desirable community in which to live and work.
