A masterly planned community, deliberately settled and developed during the 19th century, Chula Vista continues to expand east and grow as a modern suburbia with small town values. Only 10 minutes south of San Diego, Chula Vista is comfortable beach living – without being too far – removed from the bustle of San Diego’s metro.
