Covering more than 40,000 square feet of real estate at the Chula Vista Otay Ranch Mall, Total Combat Paintball strives to host sharpshooting clashes that players of all ages can enjoy. Take TCP’s Splatmaster parties for instance, where players as young as 6 can finally ditch the sidelines and join the action. During these rounds, lighter ammunition is used, ensuring no player leaves with welts or bruises that awkwardly spell the name of their secret crush. TCP hosts competitions for more experienced players throughout the year, too. It often transforms into a battleground for high school tournaments and other special events, such as “Glow Nights” that feature glowing gear, laser lights, and thumping music.

Led by a docent for the Living Coast Discovery Center with five years of experience, Chula Vista Kayak’s tours navigate these oft-overlooked waters in search of rare sights, such as the local Pacific green sea turtles coming up for air or the abundant wildlife including raptors, great blue herons, and egrets. Tours welcome beginners and seasoned kayakers alike; no matter their experience level, guests brush up on water safety with a 15-minute introduction before they’re clear to push off and explore.
Creative clients brush layers of vibrant, nontoxic paint onto a wide selection of pieces at Daydreams Ceramic Café. The wood- and earth-tone-accented shop, with a feel akin to a rustic winery, lines shelves with blank bowls, vases, mugs, and figurines. After a creative slathering, staff members glaze each piece and fire it in in the café's 2,000-degree kiln for up to two days, rendering it glossy and safe for food, microwaves, dishwashers, and teething pets. The café charges no studio fee for its visiting artists and allows them to return as many times as necessary to complete their masterworks—features which may have helped it to snag a 2011 Best Arts & Crafts award from CityVoter.
