Born out of the citrus fields of the early twentieth century, Chula Vista, is now thriving as a desirable locale for families and businesses, located just seven miles south of downtown San Diego and seven miles north of the US-Mexico border crossing. The city includes a large marina, Chula Vista Marina, along a scenic bayfront, beautiful views of the San Miguel mountains to the east, and a busy and growing downtown area that is being renovated and expanded for easy access and convenient shopping.
Eastlake is part of the bigger plans of Chula Vista that include a four-year university, an ambitious downtown urban development project, and revamping of the bayfront. Nearby developments in Otay Ranch, Lomas Verdes, and Otay Mesa areas are adding to the rapid influx of new residents in recent years in the Chula Vista area. The South Bay Freeway Extension, due to open in late 2007, will connect freeways 805 and 905 with State Route 125, and relieve some of the congestion found on Interstate 5 through the city. The city council is a responsive business-favorable body and are forward-thinking in their ideas and activities.
Originally part of the Kumeyaay Indian lands, a tribe that lived throughout the San Diego region for thousands of years, in 1795, Eastlake became part of a Spanish land grant known as Rancho del Rey, and then part of Rancho de la Nación or National Ranch, which encompassed present-day Chula Vista as well as National City and the Sweetwater Valley.
The area is now undergoing its biggest period of expansion and looking to the future to add quality-of-life additions to the community and to make the city even more of a welcoming environment for businesses and families looking to make the area their home. In addition, there are many popular destinations for visitors and residents to enjoy.
One of the jewels of Chula Vista is the ARCO US Olympic Training Center, which is home to many Olympic athletes.
