With a population approaching 225,000, Chula Vista is the county’s second largest city. Located seven miles south of downtown San Diego and seven miles north of the world’s busiest international border crossing, Chula Vista is at the crossroads of the region. From a scenic bay front that stretches along the coast to the master-planned communities and majestic San Miguel Mountain in the east, Chula Vista is a showcase of residential design and environmental innovation. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Crime rates are lower here than the national average. A major redevelopment project is underway in the urban core, a world-class bay front is in the works, and an ambitious plan to build a regional four-year university is under negotiation. The Nature Center, ARCO/U.S. Olympic Training Center, Knott’s Soak City USA Water Park and the Cricket Amphitheater are among the city’s popular attractions.
