La Jolla Concours d’Elegance celebrates its 15th year perched high above the blue Pacific “Cuvier Park is one of the most spectacular locations in coastal California, a state that knows its share of spectacular coastline.

During the first year of the festival, 2000, organizers screened about 120 films and attracted approximately 12,000 attendees.“

Mother of the Year: Laguna Beach’s Meg Weidner Stars in ‘Best Mom‘ “I play Addy, a writer working at a magazine owned by her mother (Donna Mills).

33) When you move, will your established neighbors share your same values? Does your new home have potential over the long term to develop into a high appreciation real estate investment while being affordable for mid-life or empty nesters? Do the weather patterns in winter or summer make you want to live there year round, or only on a seasonal basis. Does your new community offer a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities?
34) On your visits look for any newer developments that may trigger changes in neighborhood patterns. New construction in or around the neighborhood? Major regional economic adjustments? Transition from households with children to ones that are empty nests? Rezoning, and dramatically rising/falling land values?
