Mission Valley   

Mission Valley is an east-west river valley in San Diego, California, USA, through which the San Diego River flows into the Pacific Ocean. For planning purposes, San Diego is divided into two boroughs, Mission Valley East and Mission Valley West. Mission Valley was the first Spanish settlement in California, founded in 1769. Mission Valley now serves as San Diego’s major shopping and entertainment center. There are also several condominiums and apartments in the area.

The valley of the San Diego River was initially called Emato Cuseyai, and the Spaniards called it La Cañada de San Diego. Cañada means gully, canyon, or canyon in Spanish. The name was changed to Mission Valley via Mission San Diego de Alcala in the 1860s. The Kumeyaay Indian He has lived in the Mission Valley area for over 10,000 years and is home to many of his Kumeyaay villages, such as Nipaquay (Nipawai), Hair, and Cosoy (Kosa’aay). The first Spanish settlements in California were the Presidio of San Diego and Mission San Diego de Alcala, founded in 1769 next to Cosby Village. The Presidio and Mission were located at the western end of Mission Valley,  now  Old Town, where the valley led to the San Diego River floodplain. In 177, the mission was moved to its current location on the eastern edge of Mission Valley. This is due to improved access to fresh water for drinking and agriculture. HVAC San Diego King
