Del Cerro began as an eastern San Diego gateway city, securing a primary transportation path to downtown. Developed during the 1960s and 1970s and originally home to the Navajo community, Del Cerro is Spanish for “of the hill.” Buttressed between sub-communities such as Del Cerro Highlands, Princess Del Cerro and Olde Del Cerro, this friendly town is also neighbored by the communities of San Carlos, Allied Gardens, College Area and the city of La Mesa. Many residents describe Del Cerro as a conglomeration of university students, families and a centralized location with a bevy of activities to entertain the populace.
With the warm weather of sunny Southern California, outdoor sports and cultural activities can take place year round. Its mild climate combined with its historic attractions including Balboa Park, several museums, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Coronado Island, the Gaslamp Quarter, Sea World and its proximity to Tijuana create a comprehensive playground for its residents. Take in a game with one of the professional sports teams of the Chargers or the Padres, or visit the Fleet Space Theater and Science Center for family fun.
