    Now it it is the Hercor Hotel: Urban Boutique

    by

    This is no longer the Bay Breeze Inn and Suites, it is now the Hercor Hotel : Urban Boutique. The rooms are small and it reminds me more of a European hotel. Of course I haven't stayed here because I live too close. It is considered by some to be the best hotel in C.V.

    It is newly renovated and though it is really small, they have updated it in a hip and modern way.

    Unique Quality: The price is pretty low most of the time, even during Comic-Con they were only asking $115.00 USD per night. Normally it's below $100.00 a night. They offer breakfast, Wi-Fi and free parking. They have a small bar/lounge and offer free water, fruit and pastries all day long.

    They are located a few blocks east of the H Street Trolley Station and there are a few fast food type places within a block and a few blocks east of the Hector is the Chula Vista Shopping Center with a movie theater, some nice restaurants and of course shopping.

Travel Tips for Chula Vista

Pickup trucks

by matcrazy1

I was a little surprised seeing for the first time maybe not very many but quite many large or even very big pickup trucks in Chula Vista.

In Europe (even in warm Mediterranean areas) and even more in Poland they are much less popular at least for the three reasons, I suppose:
- unreasonable price,
- weather (snow, rains),
- they are unpractical (easy to steal unlocked/uncovered loadings).
And they are supposed to be mainly farmers' vehicles in European warmer countries.

Why are they so popular there - in a city?


VOICE 1 (from the USA):
Americans generally like everything big because that means power and money. Its probably a cultural thing, because its not usually very practical.
Since when does someone need a 2300kg vehicle to take kids to school?? LOL

From my friend CHRIS (Balfor) from Atlanta, Georgia, USA:
Pick ups are used for more than just farm work. Many Americans do their own home repairs and a pick up is the ideal vehicle for getting supplies home.
Also, many people use them for gardening so they can bring large amounts of mulch, big plants, etc home.
Many Americans have trailers or campers, and a truck is better for pulling those than a car is.
And some people just like the way a truck looks. :-)
THANK YOU Chris :-).

From my friend KATHERINE (Callavetta) from San Francisco, California, USA:
4WD vehicles are another big cultural issue here in the US now. People buy these huge things that are major gas guzzlers and then drive them around the city, never even going off road or in the snow.
Thank you Katherine.

Are they able to park a car right?

by matcrazy1

Hmm... in my (Polish and/or European) mind not at all. They just have so much space on streets and parking lots that - as you can see on my picture - they are not forced to park a car exactly and very close to a curb not mentioning "bumper-to-bumper" parking. Quite comfortable for me as a driver!

At some streets in Europe the driver of that car on my picture could even get a ticket for wrong parking (too far from a curb hehe).

From LINDA (lmkluque):
The maximum distance from the curb that we can park is 18 inches. More than that and we can be ticketed.
Thank you Linda.

Hmm... 18 inches = 45.72 cm - almost half a meter. Can you imagine what would happen in Paris when...

Farmer's Market

by lmkluque

Every Thursday a section just off Third Avenue is closed to traffic and the Farmer's Market opens up. It's not like the olden days farmers market, more like a street fair with fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers and plants directly from the farmers. Also delicious food and crafted items.

Weekly on Thursday, from 3-6 pm.

Batting Cages!

by lmkluque

Baseball has been known as an All-America sport and most of us have played the game at some time or another. The batting cages at Fun-4-All in Chula Vista are the only regulation batting cages open to the public in Southern California. Though they are not the only batting cages in San Diego, they have been voted the best.

There are 10 batting cages and the price range is $1.00 - $25.00. Call ahead--though, that isn't necessary--to make advanced reservations and ask for the discount on the cages they offer.

What is a batting cage?

Oh, sorry.

A batting cage is a space completely surrounded with wire fences and netting that one (the batter) walks into, stands on "home-plate" with bat in hand, while a machine spits out baseballs at various speeds--which the batter chooses--allowing the batter to show-off or look foolish, depending on ability or lack of it. Maybe you've seen it in the movies.

So, whether you are a baseball fanatic or just a parent wanting to help the kids blow-off steam this is a great place to have fun-4-all. They are open from 9 a.m. to midnight, everyday! If you have your own, favorite bat, bring it, otherwise all you need is money and energy!

This is how the building looks...

by brdwtchr

This is how the building looks at the nature center. There is an educational museum inside. Hiking tours for bird watching are held on Wednesdays and weekends at 2:00 pm. Behind the center is an aviary where you can walk inside an enclosure with a variety of local birds.
