Visitor Information

Though its name in Spanish means “the table,” La Mesa’s official city motto is “Jewel of the Hills.” Both descriptions apply, as many areas of the 9.1-square-mile city are flat but surrounded by gentle to steep hillsides.

If you’re up to it, a great way to get nice views of the area is to climb the secret stairs, a public stairway in the residential neighborhood above downtown La Mesa. The bottom is at Windsor and Canterbury drives, with three levels of stairways ascending to Beverly Drive – 445 stairs in all.

Although it's just east of San Diego, the hilly, arid climate is strikingly different from other parts of the county. The sun is usually shining when it's overcast along the coast.
