Neighborhood Spotlight – Chula Vista

Chula Vista CaliforniaLocated in the South Bay area of San Diego County, Chula Vista is the second largest city in the county and the 14th largest in California.

The U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, which opened in 1995, has facilities for archery, beach volleyball, canoeing/kayaking, cycling, field hockey, rowing, rugby, soccer, tennis, track & field, triathlon, and cross-training for various winter sports. Athletes are provided housing, dining, local transportation, recreational facilities, and professional development programs.

Activities along Third Avenue include a weekly Farmers Market, the Lemon Festival, Village Street Fair, Holiday in the Village, and the Starlight Parade.
