Walking in South Shores

Wilson & I usually stroll in the Averill Park area. But today, with the blustery conditions, I thought it might be neat to walk in the South Shores neighborhood, with it's great views of the stormy ocean. So in the afternoon, with what looked like a clearing, we headed out for South Shores.

South Shores was first developed in the 1950’s. It is bounded on the north by Morse and Cumbre Drives, on the east by Western Avenue, on the south by the Pacific Ocean (Paseo Del Mar and Warmouth Street) and on the west by the Los Angeles/Rancho Palos Verdes city boundary.

Here's some demographic data: According to the 2000 Census...

There were 3,615 people living in the South Shores community.
Their median age was 51.6 years.
There were/are 1,590 households in the neighborhood, of which 87.6% were owner occupied.
The median household income was $78,946.
The median home price was $404,900.
In the year 2000, there were 28 homes valued in excess of $1 million.

We have to wait for the 2010 census for an update.

Alas, by the end of of walk, we did get caught in the rain.
No complaints though.

  1. Oh, I love the ocean. The salty air, cool ocean breeze, and to be able to walk your dog...that's the best. What a joy! Have a great Sunday, Mumzie


So nice to hear from you!
