Chula Vista is not only known for being the second-largest City in San Diego County but it was also named as one of the safest cities in the country. Chula Vista has created economic development initiatives and a quality infrastructure which has led to a strong consumer base as well as a well-educated and experienced workforce. Chula Vista can be roughly translated from Spanish as "beautiful view". Sweetwater dam designer James D. Schuyler suggested the name because of its scenic location between the San Diego Bay and coastal mountain foothills.
Some of the city's notable attractions include the Chula Vista Nature Center, Otay Valley Regional Park, Mattress Firm Amphitheatre, OnStage Playhouse, the Chula Vista Marina, Aquatica San Diego, and the U.S. Olympic Training Center. Chula Vista's Nature Center is home to interactive exhibits featuring geologic and historic aspects of the Sweetwater Marsh and San Diego Bay. The Center exhibits sharks, rays, waterbirds, birds of prey, insects, and flora.
There are many more to see and enjoy at the city. The Chula Vista Center in the downtown area is the home to some major retailers, movie theaters, restaurants and more than 100 fine specialty shops. To learn more about Chula Vista please visit the city's website at https://www.chulavistaca.gov/
