Lemon Grove Real Estate
Located just ten miles east of downtown San Diego, Lemon Grove is a former agricultural center known for having a fantastic climate. The 94 freeway is the most accessible route to the rest of San Diego, though the trolley is becoming an increasingly popular mode of transportation. The trolley runs through Lemon Grove and extends to Santee, Mission valley, Downtown, and Tijuana.
Lemon Grove Homes for Sale
Lemon Grove encompasses four square miles, and was named from the orchards of lemons that fueled the city’s economy in the 1800s. The commercial center of the city now has a large lemon sculpture as an appreciation of the city’s origins.
Lemon Grove real estate is made up of mostly older ranch and craftsmen style homes in well-kept neighborhoods. Homes are affordable, by Southern California standards.
Operation Downtown is a successful volunteer project implemented to help revive Downtown Lemon Grove and its business district. Operation Downtown has helped many large and small businesses thrive, including new restaurants.
The city is host to a number of community activities including concerts, an arts complex, a playhouse, the park, and reservoir. Kids also enjoy sports such as baseball, soccer, and basketball. Though the city benefits from a high-yield trade sector, locals stay for the small town charm. The city hosts the annual outdoor Community Bonfire with live music free for the family, the largest of its kind in Southern California.
