Alpine is a census-designated place in San Diego County, California. The location of Alpine is not precisely defined, since it is an unincorporated area.
The community’s name was suggested by a resident of the area in the 1880s who believed that the environment was similar to her native home in Switzerland. Kumeyaay tribes are indigenous to the area, and the Ewiiaapaayp Band and Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians both are headquartered in Alpine.
The community is the residence of former United States Representative Duncan Hunter. Major League Baseball Second baseman Marcus Giles lives there.
