Lemon Grove, aptly named for its history as an area that once produced lemons, is a fairly young suburb of San Diego—it was incorporated in 1977. Visitors are greeted by a 3,000-pound “Big Lemon” monument originally built for a parade float back in 1928. Today, it stands as a symbol of pride for the community.
Lemon Grove is conveniently located just 10 minutes from San Diego and 20 minutes from the beach. Here’s what else makes this a great place to call home:
Single-family, California ranch-style homes are the mainstay in Lemon Grove. But you’ll also see other styles and architecture mixed in throughout the city. Some of Lemon Grove’s older homes may require a bit of love and care, but that gives you an opportunity to buy at a more affordable price and renovate to your taste.
San Diego is known for its diverse mix of neighborhoods—each of which has a style and personality all its own.
