Situated about 12 miles east of the coast, La Mesa is a historic neighborhood that serves as a gateway to San Diego's East County. Translated as "The Table" in Spanish, La Mesa is a suburb of about 57,000 residents. Incorporated as a city in 1912, this city has a sizeable housing stock of historic Craftsman, Spanish and Victorian architectural styles. With its inland location, La Mesa does have substantially hotter and dryer summers than coastal San Diego.
La Mesa is home to the annual Oktoberfest which is its largest festival of the year. Over 200,000 people usually attend over the event's three days. La Mesa is also home to a weekly Farmer's Market that brings the community together as well. La Mesa is a close-knit community that centers around its quaint and historic downtown area.
La Mesa is a quiet alternative to living in the city and many people prefer its suburban lifestyle to the hustle and bustle of the urban environment.
