Learn More About Independent Living in Chula Vista, CA

Just south of San Diego, Chula Vista has all the attractions of a big city with a more relaxed, family-centered atmosphere — residents of any age can stay busy at bayside museums, nature preserves, and open-air shopping centers. Downtown’s Third Avenue Village, home to local festivals and farmers’ markets, is one of the most walkable areas of the city and highlights Chula Vista’s continued small-town charm.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Chula Vista are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Chula Vista retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
