Charming tall palm trees line the wide avenue as it transforms from La Mesa Boulevard to University, passing fine businesses and galleries, and the La Mesa Historical Society. La Mesa has a rich history and Porter Hill is near where it all started. Photo Courtesy City of La Mesa

The City of La Mesa recently built a library on Allison Avenue. This brand new library has a wonderful collection of books and hosts events for local groups such as a recent free seminar on how to get your book published.
