All About

Living In National City, CA

As the second-oldest city in San Diego County, National City's historic past offers a great source of pride for local apartment residents.

Though the community's history is rooted deep in Spanish and the Mexican occupation, in the years since National City has played a significant role in shaping American history, as well. For instance, the community's Mile of Cars is one of the largest and maybe even the country's first auto mall. Nearly two dozen car dealerships call this auto mile home, and not only do they provide apartment renters with cars, but they've also helped perpetuate the automobile's lasting influence on California culture.

The National City Depot served as the first Pacific stop on the famed Santa Fe Railway, which carried riders as far east as Illinois before ceasing operations in 1996. Today, the depot serves as a popular historical landmark for apartment renters to appreciate, alongside the Santa Fe Rail Depot and museum and the renowned Granger Music Hall.

At the same time, National City isn't entirely about history, and apartment residents can find plenty of modern amenities to enjoy. These include a thriving shopping and entertainment district anchored by the Westfield Plaza Bonita shopping mall, and the popular Cafe La Maze restaurant, which opened its doors in 1941. The military also plays a significant role in the lives of National City apartment residents, many of whom work on the Naval Base San Diego - the Navy's largest base.
