Chula Vista Bayfront is a rewarding outing. Featuring inspiring vistas of San Diego Bay and views across the bridge to Coronado, provocative public art pieces and birds upon birds, a visit will leave you feeling enriched and satisfied. Added bonus, the Chula Vista Bayfront is part of the California Coastal Trail as well as the Bayshore Bikeway.
Founded in the early 19th century, Chula Vista is so named because of its scenic location between the San Diego Bay and coastal mountain foothills. Geographically well situated, it has grown to become the second largest city in the region and of one of the richest economic and culturally diverse zones in the United States. Popular tourist destinations include Aquatica San Diego, Mattress Firm Amphitheatre, the Living Coast Discovery Center and, of course, the Chula Vista Marina.
The City of Chula Vista has worked closely with the Port to develop its bayfront into the exemplary civic attraction it is today. Since 1991, Chula Vista has supported a Cultural Arts Commission of advisors to the City Council. The Commission has created a vibrant and growing arts community for the city and remains an active force in the selection of public art for the Port Tidelands Collection.
