About Vista

Vista’s origins are found in the lands of Rancho Buena Vista and Rancho Guajome which in 1882 became Vista California with the establishment of a post office.

The 1830s brought California the rancho era which quickly ebbed as settlers moved into the newly-created state in 1850. The area’s first post office opened in 1882  at the behest of John Frazier who sought to name the town Frazier’s Crossing and Buena Vista. Since both names were taken Frazier decided upon the name Vista. 

In 1886, Frenchman Bernard and Jules Jaques Delpy planted hundreds of acres of grapes, which became the nation’s first successful winery. Unfortunately, the winery was shut down due to Prohibition. 

The city struggled to grow until the 1920s, when the Vista Irrigation District was created. Water was drawn from Lake Henshaw and new businesses and building downtown soon followed. . Agriculture began to flourish with crops such as tomatoes, celery, and citrus fruits. Thanks to its climate and irrigation, by 1948, Vista was known as the "avocado capital of the world". 

The in post-war years, following World War II, housing began to replace agriculture. Vista was incorporated on January 28, 1963. Today, Vista’s business park is home to over 800 companies, one of the largest in the nation. In 2019, Vista had a population of 100,686.

Local activities and attractions in Vista include the Moonlight Amphitheatre, Alta Vista Botanical Gardens, Rancho Guajome Adobe, and The Wave Waterpark.
