Nestled in the foothills of the Cuyamaca Mountains of San Diego County, Alpine is a historic mountain community dating back to the early settlers of Southern California. Since the pioneer days, Alpine has drawn many to enjoy scenic vistas, fresh air, and pleasant climate. Visitors often remark on the preservation of Alpine's small town charm despite the proximity to a bustling metropolitan region. We agree: Alpine is a jewel of quiet country living less than half an hour from Downtown San Diego
