Birdwatching and hiking at the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge is just an 8-mile drive. For a more involved nature experience, camping facilities at the Cleveland National Forest are less than 30 miles away. LEGOLand is only 40 miles away, which barely gives kids time to ask, 'Are we there yet?' The border of Mexico is just a 30-minute drive, so an international day trip or weekend getaway is easy when you rent in El Cajon.
