Chula Vista, California: Hiking and Kayaking Outside San Diego
Since the city’s bordered by the Pacific Ocean on one side and mountains on the other, it’s easy to see how Chula Vista, which means “beautiful view” in Spanish, earned its name. Blessed with sunny days and comfortably warm temperatures, it’s a great place to hike, kayak in the bay, or rent a boat in the marina. And thanks to its location just 7 miles from downtown San Diego and 7 miles from the Mexican border, Chula Vista is a great jumping-off point for day trips.
San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter is arguably one of the trendiest listings on the National Register of Historic Places. The area forms both the historic center of town and a hub of San Diego nightlife, with nearly 100 Victorian-era buildings now occupied by high-end boutiques, jewelers, and gourmet restaurants.
During the day, a stroll through iconic Balboa Park takes you past 17 separate museums, as well as the world-famous and much beloved San Diego Zoo. There's also the vibrant Spanish Village Art Center, a living gallery where local artists continuously produce pottery, handblown glass, and oil paintings for sale.
