Centrally located in the rolling hills of San Diego County, La Mesa is known as the Jewel of the Hills. A near perfect climate, tree-lined streets, walkable neighborhoods, easy access to retail and commercial areas, and a quaint downtown village make La Mesa a highly desirable community in which to live and work.

Here are some of the top attractions in La Mesa:

MacArthur Park

4975 Memorial Dr, La Mesa, CA 91942

The lake in MacArthur Park is fed by natural springs (although an artificial bottom to the lake was laid during the construction of the Red Line, opened in 1993). In the past, a fountain with a reflecting pool on the northern end was also fed by the springs. The Westlake/MacArthur Park B Line station is across the street.

San Pasqual Winery Tasting Room & Gallery

8364 La Mesa Blvd, La Mesa, CA 91942

San Pasqual Winery is a small, family owned winery located in La Mesa, California – about 15 miles east of San Diego. Although the namesake dates to the 1970’s when it was located in the San Pasqual Valley, the winery was later “reinvented” as San Diego’s first urban winery, earning it a spot on Sunset Magazine’s list of “Hot 100 West Coast Trends.” The winery is now located in the industrial area of La Mesa, with offsite tasting rooms nearby in the Village of La Mesa and downtown San Diego at Seaport Village.



Pacific Southwest Railway Museum

4695 Nebo Dr, La Mesa, CA 91941

Hobby Lobby

In 1970, David and Barbara Green took out a $600 loan to begin making miniature picture frames out of their home.

Today, with more than 900 stores, Hobby Lobby is the largest privately owned arts-and-crafts retailer in the world with over 43,000 employees and operating in forty-seven states.
