Home to beautiful residential areas, a rich arts community, a thriving tech scene and top-notch schools, the city of Vista is located in North San Diego County just 7 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Vista was established more than 130 years ago and has grown from its agricultural roots to a vibrant Southern California city. Fun is easy to find at Vista’s contemporary restaurants, local microbreweries, Cinepolis luxury movie theater, Friday Night Lights at Vista High and the celebrated Vista Farmers Market with more than 80 local farmers and artisans. A Mediterranean climate inspires outdoor adventure from strolling the Alta Vista Botanical Gardens and riding the Slide Tower at The Wave Waterpark to enjoying the Vista Annual Strawberry Festival. Catch a Broadway-style musical at the Moonlight Amphitheatre, find a new favorite brew at Belching Beaver Tavern and Grill, or take a tour of Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, an historic 2,288-acre ranch and Vista’s birthplace.
