With the help of this board, I've rented a house accross from la jolla shores beach and scripps (close to the corner of La Jolla Shores Dr and El Paseo Grande). Planned the trip about a year ago and can't wait. Going with two grown daughters (21 & 23) and my wife and we're looking forward to sleeping late, hanging out on the beach and eating, drinking and relaxing. Some questions:
- Restaurants -- looks like we should be able to walk to places in LHS (sounds like parking is tough) and will need to drive to others, but have circled: The Shores, Regents Pizza, Caroline's (think it is very close), Piatti, Sushi Mori and driving to Karl Strauss, Puesto and George's. I'll toss out the places and let the women decide. Any others to consider? Can I wear jeans to all but George's?
- To Do: other than going to Scripp's acquarium and a Padres game, we don't have much planned. Any "must do's" for us? How far are we from the cove and the children's pool? We'll for sure want to take in the seals and wildlife.
- After the Padres game, is the area a good one to walk around for a late drink/snack?
- The beach: sounds like we should be in for good weather. Any watchouts for swimming? Sounds like we don't need to worry about leopard sharks attacking us, but shuffle feet for rays?
- Any other advice?
Thanks very much for your help in planning our first trip to the area.
