Chula Vista Real Estate
Chula Vista is the largest of the San Diego suburbs. It is the second largest city in San Diego County as well as the 21st largest in the state of California. Chula Vista is located in the South Bay area of San Diego County, just south of National City and north of the Mexico border. It is home to more than 165,000 residents and is one of the fastest growing cities in the county.

Chula Vista means "beautiful view" in Spanish. The town was first laid out in 1887 during the state's first real estate boom. New residents came from all over the U.S. as well as England and Canada. The main industry of the town was citrus crops and at one time the city was known as the "Lemon Capital of the Nation." Chula Vista incorporated in 1911.

Today, the lemon groves have been replaced by master-planned communities and housing developments. The city offers a mix of light industry and aerospace. The area features several major shopping areas with the newest one having opened in the Otay Lakes area of the city. Plaza Bonita is the area's oldest mall and hosts several anchor stores such as Macy's & JC Penney. The area malls serve shoppers from all over South Bay and Tijuana as well.

In 1996 the Eastlake Development Company introduced its first master-planned community to the city of Chula Vista. The Eastlake development is on of the largest urban developments in California and is currently about two-thirds built. Eastlake is also developing the Eastlake Business Center which will be home to several corporations, the Eastlake Design Center which will serve as a "one stop" shopping center for all home design goods and services and a major retail center which features Target and Lowe's.

Near downtown on the waterfront there is a 552 berth marina that can accommodate a wide variety of boats. On the far eastern side of the city, the ARCO US Olympic Training Center is the largest of three such centers in the country. It is built on land that was donated by the Eastlake Development Company. Athletes are able to train year round for a variety of sports such as soccer, track and field, rowing, cycling and hockey.

The south side of the city is home to the Coors Amphitheater, a major entertainment venue that is visited by concert-goers from all over the county. Nearby, Knott's Soak City Water Park operates seasonally and offers great outdoor fun for families and kids of all ages.
