Chula Vista is still a part of San Diego in my mind hehe although I know now that it's a seperate city with its own mayor and city government.
Chula Vista means "pretty view" in Spanish. No doubts - it's not a touristy city, rather residential area located half way between San Diego City and Tijuana, Mexico.
Hmm... I was only doing shopping (first time in the USA) there and I was eating there and first of all as a first time visitor to the USA I was looking around and just observed things! That's why this page is more about what I observed and thought than what I visited there.
I am like a kid in a candy store when I visit a country for the first time :-)). So, this page is a child-like perspective.
And, surely some of my tips (local customs especially) are not specific to Chula Vista only but at least to the whole California if even not the USA. So, when I put up pages on exact locations I visited (in ?? months hehe), I am going to move them to either my California or my USA page.
Chula Vista is a nice, safe city with a few attractions for tourists:
- the new Coors Ampitheater, where major named entertainment is offered,
- an Olympic Training Center,
- the new Knott's Soak City USA, a water slide park.
If you wish more info on tourist attractions in Chula Vista take a look at Imqluque Chula Vista page, please.
- Pros:Human smiles :-))), palm trees, inexpensive shopping, Filippi's Pizza Grotto, tourist attractions
- Cons:It's a city!
- In a nutshell:Stop for a while before you enter Mexico!
"Supermarket security guards (is it correct name?) - hmm... are cameras enough? or they are secret = no marked uniforms?... more travel advice
Hmm... I didn't live there but whenever I would look for a comfortable, clean and just nice accommodation in Chula Vista... more travel advice
