California's 53rd District

Stretching from I-5 and Balboa Park on the west, through Mission Valley to East County, and continuing south to Chula Vista, California's 53rd Congressional District includes much of the heart of San Diego. With its sparkling beaches and magnificent harbor, San Diego has long been known as a destination for millions of tourists and as every sailor's favorite port of call. While embracing these traditions, San Diego has developed and diversified in recent years to become a national center of higher education, research, and high technology. The neighborhoods, communities, and cities surrounding San Diego all offer a unique experience with special features exclusive to each area.

San Diego is a tourist's paradise, with many major attractions and warm sunny days year round.

Many of San Diego's prime tourist attractions are located in Balboa Park, just up the hill from downtown San Diego. Here we find the world-famous San Diego Zoo, The Old Globe Theatre, and over a dozen museums featuring everything from fine art to ancient artifacts to space travel.

Moving east along I-8 is Mission Valley, home to the University of San Diego, Qualcomm Stadium, Mission Basilica San Diego de Alcala, and San Diego State University.

San Diego is known as a city of neighborhoods, each with their distinct identity and history. Several of the city's most vibrant neighborhoods -- including Linda Vista, Old Town, Hillcrest, Normal Heights, North Park, Kensington, Talmadge, and Rolando - are found in the highlands north and south of Mission Valley.

Continuing east, we reach the cities of Lemon Grove, known for its small town charm and having "the best climate on earth," and La Mesa, a charming city with a small town feel. Just to the south of Lemon Grove, nestled at the bottom of Dictionary Hill, lies the community of La Presa. Heading further east from La Mesa leads to El Cajon, the most populated city in East County.

The most southern portion of the 53rd District includes portions of the City of Chula Vista and Bonita in the South Bay area. The South Bay continues to grow in both liveliness and diversity. 

I am proud to represent all of these communities as the Member of Congress for California's 53rd District. Thank you for making this virtual tour of San Diego and its neighboring areas, and I welcome you to come visit in person!
