    Bonita is a perfect place to grow up. It's safe, fun and there's a lot of things to do! For example, there of lots of great places to eat. Personally, I love San Diego's Mexican food. It's the best! I also enjoy going to the AMC movie theatre in Chula Vista. The theatre has reclining seats so it makes the movie so much more enjoyable!
    Review Bonita
    The Bonita area is a very great neighborhood. Wholesome, and very family oriented. It consists largely of older home structures, but is very quaint and quiet. The location is very close to a network of schools between k-12 as well as a community college and pre schools. Great accessibility to the freeway, yet far enough away to not be disturbed by the hustle and bustle of everyday life. One particular concern, however, is vehicle safety. Many cars that drive through the area have a tendency to go over the speed limit and is quite a hazard to the large population of children within the area. One particular change that I would like to see, particularly in my neighborhood, is the addition of speed bumps along the street. To encourage to drive more consciously.
    I lived in Bonita for 4 years and it is generally a comfortable and safe area to live in. There are many schools local to the area, and many resources close by such as parks, an animal shelter, a mall, and grocery stores. I feel that this area is ideal for families, especially with younger kids. It is easy to adapt to the area and get around (close to various highways).
