Our SUMMER CONCERT SERIES is kicking off this July 4th weekend. It all starts with the heart-thumpin', foot-stomping sounds of the Bayou Brothers, San Diego's favorite Cajun-Zydeco band. It's then on to Margaritaville on August 5th with Mark Wood and the Parrot Head Band live on stage with their Jimmy Buffet style music. This is followed up on the Labor Day weekend with the famous Calico Ridge band playing their exciting mix of Swing, Blues, Pop, Latin, R&B and Rock.
And, did you know that a $10 Uber ride north will bring you to Humphrey's By The Bay whose Summer concerts are shadowed only by ours. They are presenting artists such as Chris Isaak, Edwin McCain, The Temptations, Huey Lewis & the News, America & Doobie Brothers, just to mention a few. (Google Humphrey's for ticket prices and availability).
Holy Cow! With all this entertainment, plus Comic-Com, the Del Mar Race Track open with all their events and everything else that's in San Diego for your fun and enjoyment, you will have to stay longer to be able to take it all in. Make your reservations early because our summer is almost full. You aren't going to want to miss out on any of the fun!
Until we see your smiles, safe travels,
Andrea LaValley, GM
Here at the Chula Vista RV Resort, it is great meeting all of our fabulous guests and hearing about their memories and traditions that have developed while at CVRV. The Cordero family has been coming to the Chula Vista RV Resort for 10 years. Armando remembers doing research on places to visit while waiting at the RV Dealership. They drove through the Resort only once and they were hooked. Over the years CVRV has become their favorite place to RV. Their children have grown up here, always partaking in the numerous events we have for children during the summer months.
Their youngest, Tiffany, learned to ride her bike right here and, of course, she loved the swimming pool. Last year, their memories here became even important when they suffered the sudden loss of Tiffany. They still continue to visit the Resort to remember all the wonderful times she and the family had when they were at her favorite place. And, now, they are savoring many new and wonderful Cordero family memories.
