Stargazing is best done far from city lights. Even tho San Diego eastern edge is creeping its way out, this mountain region is still the best & closest spot for San Diegians to get a good sky. Anza Borrego to the east is the other option if the chilly weather sets in or if the crowds are too thick here.
