Chula Vista roughly translated in Spanish as “beautiful view” has the best of everything; a growing community, a casual recreational lifestyle, and location just minutes from both downtown San Diego and the U.S.-Mexican border.
Being nestled beside the tranquil bay filled with boats gently swaying in the harbor, accompanied by a picturesque view of the mountains, makes this scenic harbor unique.
With two marinas, Chula Vista Marina & California Yacht Marina , golfing at The Auld Course, Chula Vista Municipal Golf Course , or the EastLake Country Club, and several community parks, the city provides the opportunity for many outdoor sports to be enjoyed, from fishing and boating, to bicycling, golfing and horseback riding.
Knotts Soak City Water Park , open May through September, has 32 acres packed with 23 intense water rides for all of your family to enjoy. Feel like a concert? Don’t worry about a long drive to some distant venue. Just hop on over to the Coors Ampitheater and enjoy an outdoors concert brought to this neighborhood by the House of Blues.
Chula Vista offers a large selection of shopping and restaurants – from the mall experience at the Chula Vista Center, to historic Third Avenue, and numerous other retail sites scattered throughout the city. Just a few miles south is the Factory Outlet Center in San Ysidro. If you don’t mind a short drive, the diverse shopping & dining experiences in nearby San Diego and Tijuana are just minutes away.
