Vista lies within the San Diego Metropolitan Area. It also includes unincorporated areas of San Diego country and a county island as well. Located just a few miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, this region enjoys a Mediterranean climate.
Vista which means view in Spanish was founded in 1882 and became a charter city on 13th June 2007. Due to the lack of water in this area, vistas economic growth was slow. In 1923, Lake Henshaw provided a steady water supply for the city, which resulted in an influx of businesses and abundance of crops being grown in the area.
The hilly region of vista is flush with avocados earning the city its title as being ‘the avocado capital of the world’. This metropolis has more than 20 educational institutions and is the base of operation for over 750 companies.
The Moonlight Amphitheatre offers premium entertainment under the open sky while the open air Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum engages the public with its live demonstrations of historic equipment.
The city’s Alta vista botanical gardens and Japanese American Cultural Centre should be on everyone’s to do list. Annual Events like the Vista road run, Winterfest and the Christmas parade bring everyone together in perfect harmony and love. Vista is a city of great values and views, just as its name suggests.
