Sad city management. 25 year residents are dissatisfied with municipal management and main street of 2nd hand shops instead of viable business.

Don't get your hopes up. However the area is nice, and surrounded by heaps to do and places to see, plus it's easily accesible by trolley, car or walking

I usually pass by this iconic giant lemon about 3 to 4 times a week. Its not really a attraction but more like a landmark. Good place to stop and take a photo.

If you like stopping at kitschy roadside attractions, you might as well stop at the lemon. It's on a busy corner in Lemon Grove, CA...part of San Diego. The lemon is big and well tended to. Clean. No graffiti or trash. There is a tiny...More

Well it is a very big lemon, It made me wonder if there are anymore lemon groves in Lemon grove. I have seen it since I was a kid. I guess a tribute to the lemon orchards in the past?

This lemon is really big and has a small lemon grove behind it. Across the street is a park with some play features for kids and an interesting historical theme. This park has a trolley stop in it that goes all the way to downtown...More
