About Chula Vista 

Chula Vista, roughly translated from Spanish as beautiful view, is located just south of San Diego, near the U.S. and Mexico border. Founded in the early 19th century, the city incorporated in 1911. In it's early history, Chula Vista was largely agricultural and became known for being one of the world's largest producers of lemons. 
 
Today, housing and small businesses have mostly replaced the lemon orchards. The city's mild climate and location make tourism an economic engine for Chula Vista. Population growth rapidly expanded starting in the 1990s. Local demographics show a diverse and relatively young population. The relatively low cost of housing in the area continues to attract new population growth. 
 
Chula Vista is the second largest city in the San Diego metropolitan area, the seventh largest city in Southern California, the fourteenth largest city in the state of California, and the 74th-largest city in the United States. The population was 243,916 as of the 2010 census.
