Chula Vista is the second largest city in San Diego County and second only to the City of San Diego. Chula Vista covers a huge tract of land. It starts at the Chula Vista Marina and goes east until the base of the mountains in Jamul. Commute time from older Downtown Chula Vista to Downtown San Diego is about 10 to 15 minutes with no traffic. Commute time from new parts of Chula Vista Like EastLake can take 25 to 30 minutes to Downtown San Diego with no traffic. The new route 125 should make the commute to newer parts of Chula Vista much shorter. Chula Vista is East of the San Diego Bay and the Coronado Strand, West of Jamul, North of Otay Mesa and San Ysidro and South of National City and Bonita.
Chula Vista incorporated as The City of Chula Vista in 1911. Before 1911 Chula Vista was Ranch Land until 1855 when John Forster sold his Ranch "Rancho de la Nacion" to a developer who then sold it to the Kimball brothers in 1868 for $30,000. Chula Vista was only part of the massive ranch that Forster had owned. National City was also part of the "Rancho de la Nacion" purchase and once things got going there the Kimball Brothers broke ground in Chula Vista and started selling 5 acre lots for $300 each in 1887. The name Chula Vista means beautiful view in Spanish and was suggested to the San Diego Land and Town Company by James Schulyer a local resident.
Chula Vista has recently and still is under a new home development boom. A large portion of Chula Vista remained ranchland and kept up by a local rancher named Jerry. A drive out to Jamul took you down Otay Lakes Road through miles and miles of ranchland dotted with herds of cattle then passed the Otay Lakes. All of this area is now EastLake, Otay Ranch, Rolling Hills Ranch, and San Miguel Ranch. It was a vision of Henry Fenton when he purchased the 3,000 acre lima bean farm in 1931. EastLake broke ground in 1985 and the start of the new real estate boom in Chula Vista was on the horizon.
There are so many beautiful master planned communities in Chula Vista. Some of them are, EastLake which includes, EastLake Shores, Eastlake Hills, EastLake Greens, Eastlake Trails, EastLake Woods, EastLake Vistas, and EastLake Summit, others like Windingwalk, Otay Ranch, Lomas Verdes, Sunbow, San Miguel Ranch, Rolling Hills Ranch and so many more.
