rancho del rey, ca
In 1542, a fleet of three small ships sailed into San Diego Harbor commanded by Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo. These explorations led the Spanish to claim the land. In 1795, Chula Vista became a part of a Spanish land grant known as Rancho del Rey or "The King's Ranch." When Mexico formed its own government in 1831, Rancho del Rey became known as Rancho del la Nacion or National Ranch. The ranch encompassed the area now known as National City, Chula Vista, Bonita, Sunnyside and the Sweetwater Valley. Rancho del la Nacion was used by the Spanish as grazing land for their cattle and horses until 1845 when it was granted to John Forster, the son-in-law of Mexican governor Pio Pico. The United States claimed California following the Mexican-American war in 1847 and admitted it as a state in 1850. From then till now, Rancho Del Rey has maintained a homey, comfortable lifestyle - merging many of the pleasant things in Southern California with many of the exciting and uniquely Californian attractions and places to visit. Residents of all ages enjoy both extremes in Rancho Del Ray, California's one and only "King's Ranch."
