Shopping, sports, and sunshine – Chula Vista has it all

Chula Vista is a buzzing city based in Southern California’s San Diego metropolitan area, overlooking the emerald-blue waters of the shimmering San Diego Bay, and framed by grassy coastal foothills. There are so many luxurious and unique Chula Vista vacation rentals to choose from – including modern waterfront condos, regal city apartments, and huge family houses – and so many city sights to explore, from museums to sprawling shopping centers. Outdoorsy types will fall in love with Chula Vista too, as it celebrates several Eden-like nature parks and offers plenty of San Diego Bay water sports.

Things to do

Waves and wildlife in Chula Vista

If you’ve booked a Chula Vista vacation rental with the kids, take them to SeaWorld’s Aquatica Waterpark, a family-themed Chula Vista hotspot showcasing aquariums, tumbling waterslides, fountain-studded swimming pools and dolphin shows. If your kids are into animals, take a trip to the Living Coast Discovery Center, an ecological education center based in the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Here, you can see native animal life up-close, such as silvery stingrays and enormous sea turtles.

Activities

Clothes shopping and parasailing in Chula Vista

Step outside of your paradisal Chula Vista vacation rental, into the honey-bright California sunshine, and head downtown to Chula Vista Center, a vast outdoor shopping mall lined with clothing, cosmetics, and jewelry stores. If shopping’s not your bag, how about a game of golf? Chula Vista is surrounded by sweeping green 18-hole golf courses, some with dazzling views over the sun-struck bay. Serious sports fans can cruise up to the San Diego Bay area, where an array of water sports activities await – from sea fishing and jet skiing to parasailing and simple swimming.

Weather

Soaking up the rays in sunny Chula Vista

Chula Vista enjoys a semi-arid climate, with long hot summers and short balmy winters. To truly enjoy all the outdoor activities Chula Vista has to offer, travel between May and October, where daytime temperatures range from the low to high 70s – sizzling and sunny but not unbearably so. Rainfall is also infrequent in these months. If you do book a Chula Vista vacation rental for the winter months – December through March – you’ll still be able to enjoy the city, as daytime temperatures hover around the high 60s. But bear in mind that these months see some slight rainfall.

Natural features

Adventures through the rolling Chula Vista hills

For a bustling city, Chula Vista has a surprising abundance of wilderness and nature. Beyond the small San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the bay’s thin and pristine strands of sandy beachfront, a 25-minute drive east of the city will land you in the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge proper. This hilly expanse of scrubland – dotted with oak – is full of rare wildlife, like the San Diego horned lizard and the endangered Bell’s vireo songbird. Nearby, the bayside Otay Valley Regional Park, with its camping sites, hiking trails, and flower meadows is 4 miles south of Chula Vista.
