On the hills above "The Shores" are some of the most prestigious homes in Southern California, with views forever
to the blue Pacific and evening sunsets that will occasionally produce the legendary "Green Flash". To the East is
UCSD, and the UTC neighborhood, to the Northeast are the world famous Salk Research Institute and Scripps Research and
Hospital, and the PGA famous public Torrey Pines Golf Course. To the South East is the Hidden Valley area, Mt. Soledad, and
the Muirlands of La Jolla. South and West is the "Village" La Jolla and "The Cove". The "Shores" has wonderful
restaurants; Barbarella's, Piatti's, The Marine room, to name a few, there is also a wonderful convenience store
with a friendly family-owned feel, a burger joint, coffee shop, and yogurt. Make sure to stop by the Cheese Shop
for memory making sandwiches; whatever you do, don't miss the oatmeal cookies there. You'll also find a neighborhood
supermarket and Pizza too.
