Chula Vista is a large city geographically. There are good areas and there are bad areas just like any big city. You'd need to visit a specific subdivision to see if it is safe enough for your needs. Also pull the crime records for the zip code to get a feel for the amount of crime and what kinds of crime are being committed. Good luck.

As with any city in Amnerica, some areas tend to be better than others. That said, there are some lovely areas of Chula Vista that are perfectly appropriate for family living. I do recommend however, as with any potential home purchase, that you drive through the neighborhood, talk to the locals, and pull the crime statistics for the neighborhood. This is all part of doing your own 'diligence.'

Jane,
Chula Vista is a very nice community. The portions east of the 805 are newer and very popular so that may fit your modern requirement..
As with any purchase it is important to research the exact neighborhood that you are considering. I recommend that all of my clients use a couple of websites to check crime and sex offenders.
http://mapping.arjis.org Will provide you with crime information
http://meganslaw.ca.gov Provides information about sex offenders
If I can be of any help please contact me.
Also my websites have great search capabilities, are free to use and updated daily.

Yes, Chula Vista is a great place to live and raise your kids. Great newer schools and shopping on the east side of the 805 freeway. I use to live in Rancho Del Rey in Chula VIsta and it was great raising my family their.

It all depends on where. Every neighborhood has its own "HOOD" and "EASTSIDE KIDS".

Jane, Chula Vista is safe and modern for living and kids. Just log online and research Chula Vista neighborhoods such as Eastlake, The Woods, Winding Walk, Otay Ranch and Rolling Hills
Ranch to name a few. They are all great neighborhoods to raise a family in. Chula Vista has a lot of amenities to offer it's residents and the school system is great as well.
