    Alpine Reviews

    Alpine is a nice town, small enough to know you are in a safe place but big enough to enjoy activities. Viejas outlet center is the closest to a mall and has enough entertainment such as roller skating, ice skating, bowling, arcade, shops, and different eateries. As for the main part of Alpine, it's very family friendly. It has more than 3 elementary schools, one middle school, and is a 15 minute to 25 minute drive to high schools such as Granite Hills and Steele Canyon. There are many options for grocery shopping and pharmacies, including some big chain stores such as Albertsons, Starbucks, McDonald's, and Subway. There are also many places to go hiking in this small town such as Wright's field and Viejas Mountain. Alpine is also very close to many lakes, other hiking areas, 30 minutes from the beach, and 45 minutes from downtown.
    Review Alpine
    Alpine is a beautiful place. It is medium paced, which is nice to come home to and escape the everyday busyness of life. It has gorgeous trees that cover ever corner. It is rich with color and much quieter than most of San Diego. Community is important to those who live here. We are respectful and open to anyone and everyone that drives through, or stops to visit. Alpine is a safe city, with little crime. The people that live here are upstanding citizens with a lot of heart.
    I love how small the community is! For the most part everyone knows each other. Everyone is polite but, it's far out from a lot of the larger cities and takes a while to get places.
