Discover the Real Eastcounty

Discover Boulevard and Jacumba Hot Springs, high desert "sister" communities sharing a colorful stretch of historic Old Highway 80  & 94 in Eastern San Diego County. This scenic slice of old Americana is as much a state of mind as place. We are a mere 70 miles east of San Diego, but a million miles away from the daily stresses of City Life. Our backcountry gateway communities provide a convenient "home-base" to explore nature, experiance outdoor adventures, or just meander down country roads and glimpse a simpler way of life.


Want to challenge yourelf and get a great workout? Bring your mountain bike or your hiking boots. Want to soar with the eagles or see majestic raptors and birds in their natural habitat? Then book a glider ride at our airport, take a nature walk at Sacred Rocks Reserve, or visit the Boulder Garden at  the  Desert ViewTower. Maybe you just want to chill-out with a swim in the rejuvenating mineral waters of Jacumba Hot Springs Spa? Or if art is your passion, visit one of our working artists' studios?


Whether you are a day tripper or week-long vacationer, this site provides important information like What to Do, Where to Stay (including a general map) and where you can find food, drinks, places to picnic and rest-room facilities.

(Just one thing . . .  if big box stores and upscale eateries are your style, you wont find them here.  Ditto with fancy hotels and golf. Our "ma-and-pa" store communities are unpretentious and rustic but very rich in "HEART" and recreational opportunities! Best of all, we are just a short drive away!)
