Quick Look at La Jolla Shores Real Estate
The very special area known as La Jolla Shores is the neighborhood adjacent to the La Jolla Shores beach. The basin surrounded on the North East and Southwest by high hills is a favorite place for beach goers from around the world.

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.
