Overall Guide : Fletcher Hills, best neighborhood I’ve seen in the area. Very fancy views and colors as its completely surrounded by mountains. People are always smiling and generate happiness, very friendly zone. The weather is amazing, very Mediterranean Winters are mild; while... more cold in the evening and early morning to remind you there are seasons, the days are marked by sunshine and "light jacket" temperatures. In the summer, there is a calm and gentle breeze which keeps it comfortable and always pleasant. Lots of houses don't have air conditioning, although I do think that it is better if you do have one in your hotel room/apartment. The town is close to the ocean, mountains, hiking trails, parks, restaurants and shopping stores. Very concentrated. There are very good educational systems from schools, kindergartens to colleges. I personally found El Cajon itself less interesting than most of its neighbors.
