Located near downtown San Diego, Encanto (meaning “enchantment”) is a beautiful area of natural canyons, mesas, and a solid residential neighborhood of over 60,000 residents. Bordered by Logan Heights and Lemon Grove with Imperial Avenue running through the center, Encanto is also a prosperous commercial center with retail shopping, restaurants, and hotels. Though the area was settled in the late nineteenth century as a stop on the San Diego and Arizona Eastern railroad, Encanto is now San Diego's largest suburb consisting of 1,634 acres.
